Regulations governing rubbish dumps and refuse repositories create a mandatory system for allocating waste to specific sites, each characterised by distinct specifications. When planning new waste dumps or expanding existing ones, and particularly when closing down sections of waste dumps or even entire sites, there are extensive building requirements and planning laws that have to be considered.
