A Nordic study has been carried out to develop a methodology for the setting of criteria for acceptance of monolithic waste at landfills in accordance with the requirements in the Council Decision 2003/33/EC, to recommend appropriate methods to test monolithic waste and to propose associated criteria/limit values for acceptance of monolithic waste at landfills. This report contains the main conclusions of the study. The study was financed by the Working Group for products and waste (The PA-group) under the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Introduction

In the Council Decision of 19 December 2002 establishing criteria and procedures for the acceptance of waste at landfills pursuant to Article 16 and Annex II of Directive 1999/31/EC on the landfill of waste (2003/33/EC), criteria and limit values are set for the acceptance of granular waste materials at certain classes and sub-categories of waste. Specific criteria have not been set for monolithic waste at EU level, but it is stated that Member States must set criteria for monolithic waste. It is further stated that such criteria must provide the same level of environmental protection as that provided by the corresponding limit values for acceptance of granular waste at a given class or sub-category of landfill. In the decision document, development of national criteria for acceptance of monolithic waste is required for landfills for hazardous waste and landfills for non-hazardous waste receiving stable, non-reactive hazardous waste.
