Waste Management

Holistic approach…

Integrated resources to maximize value

With a full range of services related to the management, recycling, reuse, and disposal of municipal, industrial, construction/demolition, hazardous, and gas exploration wastes, as well as coal combustion residuals, the private and public sectors rely on us for processing, treatment, or disposal facility projects. Many of our engineers and technical staff are former waste industry professionals. We develop designs for waste disposal facilities; prepare plans to extend the life of existing facilities; assist with permitting and regulatory compliance; provide construction support and construction quality assurance (CQA); and design leachate and landfill gas management systems.
