Arthurstown Landfill – Clean & Green

Arthurstown Landfill is the largest Landfill gas to Electricity generation facility in Ireland and is located approximately 1.6 km south east of Kill, Co. Kildare. 4.8 million tonnes of Baled municpal waste is landfilled here. The site is operated by South Dublin County Concil and is now closed. Although the void space was not completely filled the closure of Arthurstown Landfill took place on 21st December 2010 due to the expiration of the planning permission from Kildare County Council. The Landfill is now in its Monitoring and Aftercare phase which may last between 30 and 50 years.
