What we want to do

The purpose of Landfill 20:20 is to minimise waste going into landfill by:

  • Monitoring best practise
  • Raising awareness of the Landfill Directive 2002
  • Identifying best practioners
  • Minimise household waste going to landfill

What happens if we do nothing

The dangers of doing nothing will see the UK spending more money sending household waste to landfill.

Landfill sites take up valuable space and contribute to climate change.

Natural resources are wasted by not recycling more household waste, lose as much benefit from residual waste when we do not transfer large amounts of it into sources of energy.

Emissions from landfill enter the atmosphere. When they do they can travel anywhere and have a serious impact on the environment.
