In remote Northern Territory, some piles of legacy waste have sat in sites for up to 100 years without pathways for removal.
Researchers from Charles Darwin University have identified a range of possible solutions and developed frameworks for estimating waste removal costs.
The outback-based study examined landfill sites for five communities in the West Arnhem Region including Jabiru, Gunbalanya, Maningrida, Minjilang (Croker Island) and Warruwi (South Goulburn Island).
