Ballyogan Landfill Consultancy

Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council

Ireland

Development and restoration of Ballyogan landfill in Dublin, including infrastructural improvements, restoration of the landfill and Waste Licence Compliance.

Once appointed in 2002, RPS carried out a comprehensive audit of site operations, and developed a Strategic Improvement Plan for the operation and then progressive closure and restoration of the site. Implementation of the various recommendations of the Plan has been ongoing since then.

Following closure in 2005 upon commissioning of the Ballyogan baling station, restoration of the 40 ha landfill commenced in two stages, over two separate civil works contracts. RPS executed the preliminary design, detailed design and procurement for both contracts. Restoration involved capping of the entire site, surface water management and leachate collection and management works. The second stage of capping was completed in 2010 and involved the completion of a landfill gas collection network.

RPS provides ongoing consultancy services with respect to waste licence compliance, including environmental monitoring.
