The suitability of paper mill and construction sludges as landfill cover materials has been examined in view of the scarcity of natural clay sources and reducing waste disposal cost at landfill sites. The results of consolidation, shear strength and hydraulic conductivity tests have been investigated to predict the engineering behaviour as well as long term performance of sludge samples. The present study encourages the possibility of using above-mentioned waste sludges as an alternative for landfill cover materials.
