Solid Waste

Solid Waste Services

Based on our fundamental understanding of the science and engineering behind the Subtitle D-based regulations, MEC has successfully completed more than 200 projects in the past 5 years related to design, permitting, and/or provided operational services for numerous sanitary landfills in the Midwest. We have also provided services for approximately 15 solid waste transfer stations ranging in size from 30 to 1500 tons per day. Thus, we are intimately familiar with the state and federal regulatory requirements for solid waste sanitary landfills and transfer stations.

MEC has a highly qualified and experienced professional staff consisting of engineers, scientists and technicians. Staff members have extensive experience in providing the following comprehensive range of solid waste services:

  • Landfill Design and Permitting
The siting and design of a permitted waste disposal area can take approximately 5 years and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.  You want to make certain you have the team to help you through this maze.  MEC permitted the first Subtitle D sanitary landfill in Missouri along with the first demolition landfill permitted through the latest regulations.

  • Groundwater Monitoring and Statistical Analysis
Does the idea of completing the statistical analysis of your groundwater data make your head swim?  MEC can help you with all your favorite terms like SSI, DTL, PQL, etc.

  • Exemption Requests
Not all solid waste matters require permitting of a waste disposal facility or paying large sums of money to haul the waste away for disposal.  MEC can help you find an legal, cost-effective and environmentally sound solution to your problem.
