Solid Waste & Landfills
The ideal locations for landfills also often support sensitive natural and cultural resources. In addition, landfills can impact adjacent communities through traffic, noise, odors, aesthetics, greenhouse gas emissions, and other factors. Faced with these challenges, landfill proponents must address environmental and community impacts, while also potentially dealing with local opposition. With the scarcity of space, high cost of land, and the complex environmental regulations facing this industry, it is critical to find innovative approaches to managing solid waste and landfill projects.
