Calvert Landfill Site 2
Calvert Landfill Site 2
This view looking south from the bridleway between Calvert and Greatmoor is of part of Calvert Landfill Site, see SP6923 : Calvert Landfill Site. Netting has been erected all around the site like in this photo to stop wind blown rubbish. The shiny surface to the right is high density plastic sheeting used to cover the landfill once tipping in an area is finished. This is then capped with clay to further prevent rainfall getting into the waste, and so reducing the amount of leachate ie. contaminated water that leaks from a landfill site or dump.
