EPA Region 9 conducted a study on alternatives to soil for the application of daily cover to municipal solid waste landfills. Alternate daily cover materials can conserve landfill space and provide cover in areas with limited access to soil. Applying daily cover to the working face of municipal solid waste landfills is required by most States, and is required under EPA's new 40 CFR Part 258 landfill regulations. This study reviews the purpose and regulatory requirements for daily cover, and the performance, usability, and cost of approximately 20 materials, some indigenous (non-commercial) and some commercial. This report was produced using information gathered through interviews with users and producers of cover materials and limited existing literature.
