Behind the scenes at Viridor’s landfill site in Dunbar, East Lothian

Viridor, one of the UK’s biggest recycling and waste management companies, was recently featured in a BBC Four documentary charting the history of landfill and exploring how modern-day landfill sites operate.

The Secret Life of Landfill: A Rubbish History presenters George McGavin and Zoe Laughlin visited Viridor’s landfill site in Dunbar, East Lothian for three days of filming in May.

Michelle Moran, Viridor landfill gas resource manager, North and Scotland, said: “Most people aren’t aware of the level of science and highly engineered containment that goes into designing and operating a modern-day landfill site for a major European capital and it was great to be involved in a documentary that helps improve public awareness.

“I love working in such a dynamic industry and viewers will get to see first-hand some of the huge range of challenges myself and my colleagues deal with on a day-to-day basis.”
