Different.

Spoil heaps are, as the Wikipedia article documents, heaps.  Tips.  Piles.
Piles of non-degradable mining waste.  Rock.  Rubble.  You pile them
up and that's how they remain (except in the case of disasters, such
as Aberfan).

Landfills are (generally) holes in the ground that are filled in and often
act as
bio-reactors to degrade organic material.

Not the same thing.  Usually.  At least not in the UK.
