Waste Management Planning

Technical planning of waste management facilities including landfill sites is carried out and consultation with the public to elicit feedback implemented, as required. Peer review capability is also provided to strengthen the decision making process. The site selection process for a landfill or mine waste dump requires the consideration of a number of factors. Detailed studies of the soils and hydrogeology of a prospective site and an in depth understanding of the ecological factors which would be affected, particularly the social fabric of the community, must be carried out. The company is available to complete the master planning which will result in the timely implementation of a waste management site with the consent of stakeholders including the directly affected public.
