The landfill takes in 10,000 tonnes of waste each day, which has increased significantly over the last decade. The city will be using incinerators to deal with the excess waste in order to turn it into energy, and they city plans to have five operating waste treatment facilities in use by the end of next year. The closed landfill will be turned into an ecological park, however this will require a lot of time as well as investment to help clean up the soil and groundwater.
