Abstract

Finding a suitable landfill site is a complicated process. Many disciplines must interact in selecting a preferred site; design and operations, social impact, land use planning, economics, transportation and heritage are the main disciplines interacting with acoustics. As well, public input must be taken into account. Comparing sites from a noise perspective is difficult due to conflicting models for outdoor noise propagation and for community reaction to noise impact
