The works involve the remediation of an unauthorised landfill site at Timoole, Rathfeigh, Co. Meath. The project will involve excavating the waste material and impacted material below the waste and removal to an Knockharley landfill. The void will then be replaced with clean material and graded to match existing contours. 

Landfills produce methane gas and leachate as the waste material degrades, typically it takes 30 to 50 years for the material to become inert. Removing the waste will prevent environmental pollution.
