One of the core market areas that established Brickhouse Environmental as a leader in the environmental consulting field was solid waste management. With the passing of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) in 1976, a new era of solid waste management was born and has continued to evolve over time. Throughout the 1980s, we worked with landfill owners and regulators to upgrade older facilities to meet then-current solid waste standards. We still maintain clients that were part of our first solid waste management projects in the 1980s and continue to provide superior quality services and trusted advice.
Landfill Siting, Design, Permitting, and Certification
With our long standing history in the solid waste market, our engineers and scientists have hands-on experience with landfill operations, construction, and design. This background provides an insider’s perspective to the operational considerations that are critical to successful landfill designs. While the ultimate goal of landfill design is to protect the environment, we understand that landfills are also a competitive business. Each of our designs consider the benefits of maximizing capacity versus capital and operational costs. Our innovative designs in leachate recirculation, liner technology, and capping alternatives have consistently demonstrated that there are always more practical, less expensive alternatives to the design and operations of today’s modern landfill.
Landfill Compliance Monitoring and Reporting
Alongside Brickhouse Environmental’s experience in solid waste design and management, we provide valuable insight and data evaluation when it comes to compliance monitoring at landfill facilities. Our field services include monitoring well sampling, leachate sampling and characterization, stormwater and surface water monitoring. In addition to the highest quality data collection, we offer experienced data analysis and interpretation to ensure compliance and address findings in a timely and efficient manner. Throughout the process of data collection, database management and reporting, we provide clients with environmentally sound, cost-effective solutions for the long-term operational costs at landfills.
