Capping is currently being carried out at Wylie Bay to seal Phase 1 of the landfill. A Geosynthetic Clay Liner is being laid, this looks a bit like a carpet and prevents water getting through to rubbish. This is then capped with 1.2m of sand and topped with hydromulch which contains seedlings that match the local area to promote regrowth. Most of the work is being carried out by local contractors. This type of work occurs at most landfills that have a closure management plan and is required by the Department of Water and Environment Regulation.
