Landfill construction and management is a real science. The days of “dig a hole and put the garbage in it” are long gone. Modern landfills are structured and actually checked step by step for construction stability, gradients, and proper structural integrity.
There’s a good reason for this level of accuracy. In the past, landfills were notorious for structural failures, instability, and being a general menace to anything around them. You still occasionally see in the media incidents of old landfills caving in or becoming hazards to nearby buildings and infrastructure.
The new approach is also a lot more environmentally sane, as well as environmentally friendly. Solid waste management software and stakeless grading software can actually monitor construction in real time. They also help to reduce the amount of space used, and wasted, in landfill construction. Waste compaction software is another useful asset, delivering more space for landfills in an increasingly demanding waste management environment where space is at a premium.
A company called GeoLogic Computer Systems is one of the leaders in this field. Their software is cutting edge, Bomag landfill equipment, A1-Jon, and Caterpillar. This is where you see the practical science at work, creating not only construction software but management software as well, delivering a streamlined, real time management system.
Their software is a combination of onsite efficiency and effective operational management. It’s able to monitor individual vehicles in real time, and deliver a data stream of monitoring information regarding physical construction.
The result is a whole new tier of cost-efficiency for landfill managers. This software is considered by experts to be a game changer in the field of landfill operations. It’s drastically improving construction values while also adding extra management capacity and operational “grunt factor” for vehicle operators.
The company website is a good place to see how the new technology is literally changing the landscape of the waste management industry.
