|Abstract: ||Introduction of the EU Landfill Directive is having a significant impact on
waste management in the UK and in other member states that have relied on
landfilling. This paper considers the length of the aftercare period required by
the municipal solid waste streams that the UK will most probably generate
following implementation of the Landfill Directive. Data were derived from
literature to identify properties of residues from the most likely treatment
processes and the probable management times these residues will require within
the landfill environment were then modelled. Results suggest that for chloride
the relevant water quality standard (250 mg l−1) will be achieved with a
management period of 40 years and for lead (0.1 mg l−1), 240 years. This has
considerable implications for the sustainability of landfill and suggests that
current timescales for aftercare of landfills may be inadequ|
