Solid Waste Management
Let nothing go to waste
A shift to more sustainable and resilient solutions has fundamentally changed how communities and companies manage their solid waste. How? More often waste is being considered a resource. Stantec’s solid waste engineers, scientists, and regulatory specialists help clients with waste reduction, recycling, composting, waste-to-energy, and zero waste projects.
Our team works on the conceptualization, planning, design, and construction of waste management facilities through to the processing and disposal of waste—including closure, reclamation, and post-closure monitoring. We provide strategies for proper waste management systems, examining alternate delivery options and analyzing economics and financing to develop creative and sustainable systems. We’ve contributed engineering, permitting, materials testing, and many other services to projects across North America and internationally.
Surrey Biofuel Processing FacilityThe City of Surrey runs a multi-channel Rethink Waste Program that helps residents and businesses separate waste into garbage, recycling, and organics—and the Surrey Biofuel Facility is one particularly notable component in that plan. The process converts collected kitchen and yard waste, along with commercial waste from across the region, into 100% renewable natural gas and compost. Read More
Milton Keynes Waste Recovery ParkWith the area’s no mass burn policy, the Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park needed a different solution to treat their household and business waste. The technologies to treat the waste involve three processes. Mechanical treatment extracts recyclables. Anaerobic digestion and in-vessel composting convert food and organic waste into renewable energy and a compost-like output. And an advanced thermal treatment facility turns anything remaining into gas to generate high temperature steam that is converted to electricity in a turbine. Read More
Solid Waste and Recycling Rate StudyFor over 15 years, we’ve served as the City of Sarasota’s water, sewer, and solid waste rate consultant. After our team conducted a solid waste revenue sufficiency analysis and rate study (examining a five-year period), we used our financial modeling system to develop a financial plan. The goal? Identify the level of rate adjustments the City would need to implement to satisfy revenue requirements in relation to annual cost escalation. Read More
