Superior Environmental Protection

LiteEarth is fully tested to meet environmental regulations for long-term closure.

LiteEarth is the best solution for environmentally responsible land capping. Our lightweight, impermeable material conserves natural resources, and non-toxic surface drainage maintains water quality and provides odor containment. LiteEarth eliminates the use of environmentally damaging fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and mower exhausts required for natural grass maintenance.
