Environmental Protection

environmental protectionWith the largest network of landfills in the industry, Waste Management utilizes state-of-the-art liners, leachate collection, ground water monitoring, and gas control systems, along with operational procedures that ensure protection to the environment. Designed and operated under highly regulated and prescribed procedures, each facility is engineered to protect surface and ground water through the highest environmental control. Each site is maintained carefully to meet or exceed federal, state, and local regulations.

We also collect and monitor the leachate that is generated at the facility. Our facilities also have a special waste program that evaluates waste that is proposed to be disposed at the landfill prior to acceptance and pre-approves any waste that enters the facility.
