South Ahmadi Land Fill Monitoring Cleaning and Management

Ahmed Al Rashed, Yousef Al Hammad


Abstract: South Al Ahmadi land fill (previously called Kabad land fill) located 35 km west of Kuwait City, is one of the largest land fill occupying an area of 4, 214, 609 mq2 and with waste as high as 40 m. The environmental impact of the landfill on the surrounding soil and ground water was evaluated in 2016. ground water and soil analysis proved heavy contamination. A recent monitoring study was conducted in the landfill area using a similar procedure with the amount of ground water samples and soil samples in the surface and subsurface. These samples were under-went physical and chemical analyses resulted in the large pollution of these elements. Rapid population growth and lifestyle changes have increased the generation of waste. This study emphasises on the importance of solid waste management in south Al-Ahmadi land fill. The municipal or residential wastes generated in city areas are mostly solid. Safe and cost effective-waste management disposal is a significant challenge for modern society of Kuwait. Increase waste generation adversely impacts the environmental, financial, and social situations. Most of the waste in such landfill is dumped in an uncontrolled manner. Landfills occupy extensive land area. In small countries such as Kuwait, the scarcity of land is a challenge. This is the main objective for this study. To overcome the problem, a method must be implemented to minimize and properly segregate solid waste in Kuwait. A successful integrated solid waste management plan will result in safer and cleaner environment for future generations
