Solid Waste

Rethinking waste…

Everything from waste management to resource recovery

CEC offers engineering and construction support with traditional and advanced waste management services. We strategically added former solid waste company professionals to our team, building on decades of engineering and consulting expertise. Our experience includes projects for landfills, transfer stations, rail transload facilities, collection facilities, and material recovery facilities (MRFs), including comprehensive leachate management and treatment, landfill gas collection and management, and due diligence, operational efficiency, or other business support services. We also evaluate industrial wastes for acceptance, considering the potential impacts to landfill stability, and any necessary mitigation measures for facility owners.
