The primary design considerations would be:
These criteria can be met by a limited capacity Sanitary Landfill, which can be closed at the end of its operational life and converted to a multiuse industrial area – specifically for waste related activities. The landfill area itself can be reclaimed as a public utility area, such as a park, a golf course, nature reserve, solar park for instance.
Type of Landfills
The sanitary landfill will generally include a Leachate collection and removal system. The operating practices include compacting and covering waste frequently with several inches of soil.

The tiered filling system and the layers of soil prevent the build-up of methane gas eliminating the threat of a collapse, ensuring safety.
The advantages of a sanitary landfill are as follows:
