Using Quick Cover ADC provides
several benefits to landfill operators. Not only
does Quick Cover save valuable airspace, it also reduces
operating costs, equipment requirements, landfill
depletion rates and closure post closure accrual rates.
Like all alternate daily cover
materials, Quick Cover saves valuable airspace.
Cheaper Than Soil
For landfills that are deficient in
soils for daily cover, Quick Cover is less expensive
than purchasing soil.
Reduces Operating Costs
Using Quick Cover reduces the cost
of excavating, transporting and placing daily cover
soils. Typically no more than one man hour is
required to mix and apply Quick Cover.
Improves Leachate and Landfill Gas
Using Quick Cover improves leachate
and landfill gas collection efficiency by removing the
low-permiability barriers that are created by fine grain
soil daily cover.
Reduces Equipment Requirements
By reducing the amount of soil to be
excavated, transported and placed, less equipment may be
necessary. Depending on site specific conditions,
fewer trucks or scrapers may be necessary for cover
excavation and transportation.
Depeletion Rates, Closure and Post
Closure Accrual Rates
Landfill depletion rates, closure
and post closure accrual rates are typically based on
remaining waste capacity. These rates may be reduced by
using Quick Cover because it allows more waste to be
placed in a landfill.
