Waste compaction decrease insitu waste void, improve landfill stability and extend landfill life. Recently buried waste was excavated from two large pits in Johannesburg Robinson Deep Landfill site. The compaction characteristics such as optimum moisture content (womc), compaction effort (Ce) and maximum dry density (γmdd) of the bulk and reconstituted waste mass were investigated in the laboratory. Compaction effort ranging from 5 layers and 35 blows per layer to 5 layers and 175 blow per… CONTINUE READING
