How long after a landfill is capped before it is safe to build on top of it?

    Once landfills are closed, it is possible to build on top of them. Measures have to be taken with newly closed landfills or landfills that are still emitting methane from microbial breakdown of organic material in the landfills. These gases need to be vented properly so that they don’t seep into the construction built over the landfill.
