Alternative daily cover: A landfill operations game-changer

Most operators use topsoil to meet landfill daily cover requirements.

It works, but it’s expensive and time-intensive.

If you’re strapped for cash or lack easy access to topsoil, explore foam alternative daily cover products and application equipment from Atmos Technologies.

It’s the game-changing solution you need to streamline operations and save time, money and air space.

Michigan landfill slashes man- and machine-hour daily cover requirements by 90+%

New foam alternative daily cover product and application equipment from Atmos helped one of Detroit’s largest landfills turn a 20-hour marathon into a 90-minute sprint.

Reduce equipment wear and maintenance

Traditional topsoil daily cover requires a loader, a dozer and a dump truck at a minimum. Daily heavy use takes a serious toll.

How often is your machinery down for maintenance? Are repair costs piling up? Can you afford an unplanned capital equipment expense?

Alternative daily cover from Atmos requires just one machine, allowing operators to re-deploy legacy equipment — or take it off the balance sheet entirely.

Even better, we own and maintain the application equipment so all you’ll ever pay is a chemical usage fee.

Save labor hours and re-deploy your staff

It takes at least three operators several hours a day to open and close collection cells and haul topsoil from pit to working face.

Other landfill cover products are lackluster, too. Landfill tarps are more labor-intensive, not less. Chemical coverage solutions are often dangerous to the environment.

Atmos only formulates non-PFAS/PFOS aqueous foam for landfill daily and final cover. It’s easy to apply, requiring just one operator and a couple hours of work at most.

If good fiscal stewardship and meeting your daily cover needs are in constant conflict, alternative daily cover can free your work force to tackle more projects while saving money in the process.

Make the most of limited air space

Landfill capacity in North America is dwindling. Even so, opening new collection cells takes longer and longer as operators fight their way through red tape.

Every six inches of air space wasted on topsoil coverage brings you six inches closer to no more room.

Foam alternative daily cover from Atmos works just as well — and usually better — than topsoil, taking up just a fraction of the space in comparison.

The clock won’t stop ticking. Buy time and save space to extend the life of your landfill.
