Landfills and Solid Waste

Approach
Our engineering and environmental specialists have extensive experience with the disposal of solid and hazardous wastes. Previous projects include waste stream investigations, feasibility and site selection studies, geotechnical investigations, permitting, detailed design, contract documentation and management including construction quality assurance.

We also provide monitoring and environmental audit services for operating waste sites.

A risk based design approach to the transport, handling and disposal of toxic and hazardous wastes, provides clients with a decision framework including factors such as liability and safety. Our client base includes local authorities, mineral processing plants, mines, industry and power stations.
