Location of the landfill at a distance of 400 m from nearest settlement houses and about 6 km from the Zagreb city center gives great engineering challenge to diminish its ecological impact. Before rehabilitation, waste was unplanned disposed on area of 80 hectares.
Phase I consisted of preparation of the ground and construction of 5,5, ha watertight bottom liner (cell 1). Existing unplanned disposed waste (approx. 6,85 mil. m3) was in phase II gradually removed to newly constructed watertight bottom liner of cell 1. Bottom liners for cells 2 to 5 have been constructed, and cells 1 to 3 have been covered with geo-synthetic and natural mineral materials. Landfill infrastructure and facilities have been built in phase II. Phase III consisted of acceptance and compaction of newly brought municipal waste. Phase IV consisted of construction of bottom liners for cells 5D and 6 and construction of covering system for cell 4. From phase II onward, municipal waste has been continuously accepted and compacted on prepared cells with rate of 350.000 t per annum.
Accompanying facilities of the landfill are: entrance with measuring scales, gas plant with 2 generators and 2 flares, landfill leachate treatment plant, disposal of metal waste, bio-composting plant and construction waste recycling plant.
