Solid Waste Management

Our team works with public sector and industrial clients to address the management, disposal and treatment of solid waste.

We are experts in the development, design, construction, operation and closure of landfills, recycling plants, transfer stations and waste-to-energy facilities. KCI works to earn regulatory approval and public acceptance while developing solutions that address the ultimate disposal of waste, including municipal solid waste, refuse, liquid wastes, ash, and other products derived from both municipal and industrial facilities.
