A sanitary landfill employs engineering strategies to deal with leachete and other harmful by-products caused by decomposing rubbish and at Bukit Tagar, this results in an area that merely looks like cleared land rather than the mountains of garbage we are used to.

MENTION the word landfill and most of us would have images of mountains of reeking rubbish left in the open.

However, a visit to the Bukit Tagar Sanitary Landfill will dispel these preconceptions as the site, located about 50km from the city, is clean and well maintained.
