Report for Waste Measurement Model July 2006
GHD Pty Ltd (GHD) was commissioned by the Government of Western Australia - Department of Environment (DoE) to perform an investigation in support of the development of a conversion factor to assist in estimating the weight of landfilled waste disposed at licensed landfill sites operating in Western Australia (WA).
The investigation was performed in order to accommodate existing regulations regarding waste data reporting and recommendations for development of a volumetric conversion factor for landfilled inert waste. The results of the investigation were based on the analysis of field data collected at select inert landfills. This report presents the findings of these field investigations and associated calculations performed in support of the development of a waste measurement model appropriate for conversion of volumetric waste measurements to tonnes.
