A high degree of urbanization with growing cities has raised a need of transforming closed landfill sites for giving them new uses. This study aims to investigate how old landfills can be re-used, what has lead to the new uses, and for what and whom the transformed site will be an asset. The method used is a case study of four different landfills in Stockholm county, Sweden. The case study is analyzed in the light of former studies regarding re-use of degraded urban areas, so called brownfields, and in particular studies and reports of landfill re-use. The result indicates that old landfill sites is identified as an area with possible values if transformed properly, in the case study area especially as green structure and recreation areas. But for the transformation to take place there has to be a local community which demands a transformation. The transformation is also depending of the surrounding areas’ need of more green structures, which is not always the case in Stockholm. The study also shows that closed landfills which have not been part of any bigger transformation, also can be a valuable place for groups and alternative activities which are not always welcome in other urban environments.
Key words: Landfill, land use, land re-use, brownfield, Stockholm.
