MADELEY HEATH LANDFILL SITE

Chadwich Lane, Romsley, Near Bromsgrove

<< Back to Recycling and Waste main page

Madeley Heath landfill was originally used as a borrow pit for the M5 construction. This was pre 1974 and completed in 1992. It accepted domestic and non-hazardous commercial wastes which amounted to 684 000m3. The landfill covers an area of 5.7 hectares and the waste has a maximum depth of 19 metres with an average of 12 metres.

The site has no engineered liner, and is a dilute and disperse landfill.

Gas concentrations are currently monitored from 8 external boreholes around the perimeter of the landfill and from five wells installed in the landfill.  In addition, leachate and groundwater quality monitoring is undertaken from selected locations including two boreholes that are drilled to 80 and 85m.
