History of Kapiteltal landfill

Joint development of landfill planning

The owner and operator of the Kapiteltal landfill is the Zentrale Abfallwirtschaft Kaiserslautern (ZAK). In 2000 the landfilling of waste was terminated. In 2015, landfill work for the expansion of the landfill began. Since 2016, between 400,000 and 500,000 tonnes of class I waste can be deposited there each year. more
