At the end of their lifespan, landfills are typically capped and grassed over, but they remain contaminated, unstable, and unsuitable for development. These capped landfills are referred to as œBrownfield sites, which are defined as any former industrial or commercial site whose future use is affected by real or perceived environmental contamination.

Brightfields are becoming increasingly popular and provide many benefits to the surrounding communities.
