Long Beach, CA – SCS Engineers announces several strategic promotions that increase its support for its landfill, waste management, and sustainable materials management clients in North America. The Board of Directors confirmed Robert E. Dick, PE, BCEE, as a Senior Vice President this month. Consistent with other professional engineers that comprise SCS’s executive leadership team, Dick remains dedicated to project-related problem solving and frequently spends time in the field listening to and serving clients – an advantage of employee-ownership.

Dick notes, “SCS provides the opportunity for me to be fully and intimately engaged daily in the technical aspects of executing project assignments while expanding my leadership role within our organization and the solid waste industry.”

Dick joined SCS Engineers in 1990, now leading SCS’ Solid Waste Engineering Practice in the mid-Atlantic region. With over 30 years of experience working on civil and environmental engineering projects related to solid waste management, he provides landfill, landfill gas, and sustainable solid waste facility engineering solutions in more than 15 states and several foreign countries.

Americans generate trash at an astonishing rate. Waste management, recycling, and landfills play an important role in most people’s lives without them realizing it. Using a holistic approach, Dick’s success, developing and implementing integrated solid waste management programs and associated facility operations, encompasses multiple disciplines to manage the waste cycle as cleanly and efficiently as possible. His engineering work includes numerous multi-disciplined landfill projects involving new landfill cell construction, vertical and lateral expansion, closure, post-closure care, groundwater monitoring, phasing operations, and financial assurance. All have positive impacts on clean air, water, and soil.

Dick leads SCS teams in formulating innovative and creative solutions for numerous project assignments related to solid waste planning and facility projects. Sustainable solutions involve residential and commercial collection and recycling programs, convenience centers, composting facilities, material recovery facility design, permitting, construction, and operations consulting. His expertise also stems from his support of landfills throughout the eastern seaboard and Mid-Atlantic, including over 150 landfill gas projects. He helps clients meet their Clean Air Act compliance goals and use methane gas for energy, reducing emissions.

“Bob plays a key role in our success,” said Jim Walsh, SCS President and CEO. “His work and dedication to his clients help them implement environmental solutions we employ in other parts of the U.S. and globally.”

Dick is actively involved in organizations including the American Society of Civil Engineers, National Society of Professional Engineers, Solid Waste Association of North America, National Waste & Recycling Association, and the International Solid Waste Association, along with multiple regional associations where he shares his knowledge with others.
