English translation:waste disposal and management site
Explanation:
**disposition**, in the context of waste disposal, is **management**. Here is what Termium has on waste disposal. Since your text doesn't include a description of the **method** of disposal, I don't think anything as specific as "landfill" would do. English:Waste Management land fill s CORRECT landfill s CORRECT land fill site s CORRECT landfill site s CORRECT land-fill site s CORRECT
waste disposal site s CORRECT land fill area s land disposal site s disposal site s controlled tipping site s CONT - Land Fill Uses: Primarily, land fills are used to bury solid wastes sensibly, economically and safely. s EX - All LLRW [low-level radioactive waste] was deposited in the now closed west quarry. It was spread evenly over the dumping area and covered daily according to AECB recommended practice at the time. A clay top cover now seals the landfill. The LLRW is, therefore, mixed with a large volume of other wastes and cover materials. Ratings of radiation levels at the surface are not above background. s OBS - "Landfill" may mean: a) sanitary landfill(ing), open dumping, c) landfill site. s
