Waste Management

Holistic approach… Integrated resources to maximize value

As a leader in waste management, we bring together the expertise and resources you need to minimize waste and maximize assets. Our waste management practice offers a full range of consulting and engineering services related to the management, recycling, reuse, and disposal of municipal, industrial, construction/demolition, residual, hazardous and gas exploration wastes, and coal combustion residuals.

Both private and public sector clients rely on our technical capabilities for their processing, treatment, and disposal facility projects. We have built strong relationships by helping our clients plan for success through ever-changing regulatory conditions.

The experience to deliver sustainable waste management solutions

Our engineers and technical staff, many of whom are former waste industry professionals, develop designs for municipal, commercial, and industrial waste disposal facilities, prepare plans to extend the life of existing facilities, assist with permitting and ongoing environmental compliance management, provide construction support and construction quality assurance (CQA), design leachate and landfill gas management systems, and obtain approvals for beneficial uses of wastes to help clients avoid disposal costs and liabilities.

Our understanding of the unique characteristics of waste streams and the complexities of operating waste management facilities enables us to develop innovative and cost-effective waste management solutions for our clients.
