Summary:Recirculation of leachate through landfilled solid wastes offers potential advantages in reducing the volume of liquid by surface evaporation, and reducing the strength of leachate by crude anaerobic treatment within the landfill. Results of research using 7 m3 lysimeters essentially confirmed these benefits and produced a predicted volume of low strength leachate within 18 months. A full-scale study at a lined landfill at Seamer Carr, North Yorkshire, has shown that on a large scale these benefits are more difficult to obtain. Modified journal abstract.
