McArdle wins landfill work on Islay

Argyll and Bute Council has appointed McArdle to construct a new landfill cell on the Isle of Islay.

With all materials needed to be delivered to the site by barge, McArdle has said that the project will be logistically challenging. Work on the site will involve installation of a 500mm thick Bentonite enriched soil layer, HDPE membrane, geosynthetic clay liner, geocomposite drainage layer, a granular drainage layer, leachate pipework and chambers. Outside the cell, McArdle will construct a surface water management system.
