VHE were awarded the contract for the permanent capping of the Landfill Cell at Parkwood Landfill in Sheffield.

The operational landfill site at Parkwood Road is just up the road from our multi-phase Neepsend Gasworks scheme.

VHE’s cappping works at Parkwood involved included:

  • Regrading of waste and placement of 300mm regulating layer
  • Installation of a Geosynthetic Clay Liner
  • Installation of a LLDPE geomembrane
  • Installation of a Geocomposite
  • Placement of 1500mm of restoration soils over the Geocomposite
  • Cultivation of restoration soils and compost material
  • Grass seeding of capped area and 12 months aftercare

In addition to this, we also undertook:

  • Gas collection system works including raising 8 wells and installing 90mm gas pipe
  • Relocation of screen bund and associated litter fence
  • Construction of drainage works
  • Landscape remediation of previously restored areas and 12 months aftercare
  • Imported approved material to construct a new cell Wall, including carrying out lining and associated pipework for leachate and gas.

We completed the project in two phases, installing the necessary drainage initially then returning to complete the capping works once the cell had been completely filled.
