Cork City Council has appointed a contractor to carry out capping/restoration works at Kinsale Road Landfill Site. The area to be capped measures approx 9 hectares (22 acres) and the works are scheduled to be undertaken over the period from July 2010 to Oct 2011.
To achieve the final contours required it will be necessary to excavate and relocate waste material within the Landfill Site.The bulk of the excavation works are scheduled to commence on Monday 26th July 2010 and be completed within one week.
These excavation works are likely to give rise to odours, and mitigation measures will be put in place to deal with same.Cork City Council regrets any inconvenience caused by these necessary works. Every effort will be made to minimise the impact and to ensure that the movement of waste is completed as quickly as possible.
