Back | The first Sanitised Landfill Closure
Cypark Sdn Bhd
Detail Narrative Description of Project
Minconsult Sdn Bhd was engaged by Cypark Sdn Bhd (the project's Design and Build Contractor) in 2005 as the principal Engineering Design and Supervision Consultant for the closure and restoration of the Taman Beringin Landfill implemented for Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (KL City Hall). The Landfill was used as a local dumping ground from the early 90's and was eventually closed by DBKL in May 2006. The site which was originally an old mining pit was initially used as a convinient waste dump upon cessation of mining activities. However, due to a shortage of available disposal sites, the unengineered landfill continued to be used until the waste attained a height of 40 metres above the surrounding area, causing leachate contamination to Sg. Jinjang, and severe distress to nearby residents.

The works implemented under Cypark's contract include the following initial measures for closure of the landfill, and form part of a longer term plan to remediate and convert the site into a green area for recreational purposes:
