A landfill is defined as “a waste disposal site for the deposit of the waste on to or into land, including internal waste disposal sites (i. e. landfill where a producer of waste is carrying out its own waste disposal at the place of production) and excluding facilities where waste is unloaded in order to permit its preparation for further transport for recovery, treatment or disposal elsewhere, and temporary (i. e. less than one year) deposit of waste prior to recovery, treatment or disposal” (EEC Draft Directive 1995)
