Tender for the selection of a private partner for the regulation of this landfill was published in 2015 and five companies have been shortlisted from 11 that initially applied.

During the pre-qualification process it was announced that the original plan was to obtain all building permits by the end of 2017 in order to complete the works and start utilizing the station by the end of 2019.
