Landfill Construction

FGE, with its parent company, is a leader in KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Gauteng in the construction of both new landfill sites and the closure (rehabilitation) of existing landfill sites.

FGE is therefore committed to international best practice policies to create a better environment. This is achieved by constructing landfills that allow effective waste disposal which prevent the ingress of contaminants from everyday waste into underground and subsoil water systems.
