Waste Management & Landfill

All societies generate waste. It’s an unavoidable fact of life. The problem is coming up with sustainable ways to manage waste and mitigate business risks and risks to the environment and human health.

The ultimate disposal of waste represents one of the most significant waste-management challenges. Past landfill practices of dumping waste in unengineered holes in the ground have left a legacy of contamination and environmental impact. As our cities continue to grow and global population increases, so will the need for sustainable, environmentally friendly waste-management solutions that protect our health and our natural resources. EHS Support has the solution.

At EHS Support, we focus on minimising environmental impacts by delivering reliable waste-management solutions for communities and business. A key area of EHS Support expertise is provision of integrated engineering and environmental services to the landfill industry, ensuring that new waste management facilities are designed and built to the highest standards, with appropriate levels of engineering to maintain human health and protect beneficial uses of the environment for the duration of the operating facility and post-closure. Our specialists have the technical skills necessary to evaluate the hydrogeological and landfill gas risks that former landfills pose and to provide strategies to mitigate and manage those risks.

Landfill Siting & Approvals

Landfill Siting & Approvals

At EHS Support, we assist clients in siting new landfill development, paying attention to physical and legislative constraints, as well as aiding in the preparation of works approval and development applications for new facilities. Potential sites are assessed on the basis of a matrix comparison of factors including availability of appropriate buffers, waste-management planning context, hydrogeological conditions, ecological considerations, appropriate sizing, community concerns and design factors.

Regulatory Compliance

Regulatory Compliance

Regulatory agencies require increased compliance and approvals for a range of risk management and mitigation processes, including auditing of landfills during their operational life and regulating closed landfills in a variety of forms, such as legacy sites that are often not engineered and have not effectively contained wastes or may have diminished buffers as a result of encroachment from surrounding land development. Our team specialises in all aspects of landfill approvals.

Landfill Operations

Landfill Operations

Operational landfills have strict regulatory requirements for ongoing development, monitoring and progressive rehabilitation. We provide expertise in the development of new landfill stages (cells), monitoring of compliance against licence conditions, risk assessment, progressive rehabilitation, and ongoing compliance with regulatory requirements. Our services include master planning, financial assurance estimates, landfill-gas risk assessments, hydrogeological risk assessments, monitoring, auditing and more.

Landfill Rehabilitation & Post-Closure Strategies

Landfill Rehabilitation & Post-Closure Strategies

We help clients respond to increasingly stringent regulatory requirements for rehabilitation and for the closure and post-closure management and monitoring of closed landfills. From geotechnical investigations of landfill-cap integrity, to hydrogeological risk and landfill gas risk assessments, to rehabilitation and aftercare management plans and environmental monitoring programs, we provide cost-effective, responsible environmental and social outcomes to meet regulatory and societal requirements.

Management of Legacy Landfills

Management of Legacy Landfills

EHS Support manages liabilities posed by legacy landfills, which often generate large volumes of low-strength leachate and landfill gas. Using specialist landfill hydrogeology skills, and the management of landfill gas generation and off-site migration and associated risks, we work to minimise and manage leachate generation and impact. Our clients benefit from our vast experience in working on former landfill sites, and the proportionate response to the risk profile these sites present to the environment.
