Randers Municipality conducts test excavation at Nordic Waste site

In Randers Municipality, these days are centered around a test excavation at the local waste management company Nordic Waste. This initiative is part of a larger effort to address the consequences of a recent landslide that occurred in the area. The test excavation, which began earlier this week, aims to assess the feasibility of moving the displaced soil back to the company’s premises. This step is essential to re-establish the Alling Creek and Gl. Århusvej, both affected by the landslide. Municipal director in Randers Municipality, Jesper Kaas Schmidt, expresses optimism about the project.

“This is good news. The test excavation marks an important step in our efforts to mitigate the consequences of the landslide at Nordic Waste,” he said in a press release. There is a strong focus on ensuring that the test excavation does not lead to further landslides. “It is important that the effort does not result in new and additional landslides. Therefore, we have consulted extensively before starting, and we do everything we can along the way to stabilize the area, as well as closely monitor the landslide,” Jesper Kaas Schmidt continues.

The work is expected to be completed within the week, and Randers Municipality hopes that the test excavation will have minimal impact on the existing landslide, while also contributing to a quicker restoration of the affected areas.
