Solid Waste Engineering

The collection, conveyance, disposal and recycling of solid waste continues to be an evolving industry. With today’s emphasis on “green” technology, this field is becoming increasingly more important. For the “sustainability” of resources and because the rules are changing, many businesses and governments are expanding their recycling effort. King has experience with a full range of solid waste planning, design, permitting, construction and rehabilitation projects.

Our experience extends beyond the design, permitting and construction of basic facilities but includes associated solutions for groundwater contamination, landfill volume and remaining life calculations, traffic flow, air permitting and public outreach. This experience, combined with our other company disciplines, means that we provide a comprehensive approach to your solid waste needs.
