Landfill Services

Landfill Design-Build-OM&M

National Expert: Bob Gardner


Our private, municipal, and industrial landfill clients have a wide variety of engineering, permitting, construction, operation, monitoring, and maintenance service needs. SCS Engineers is proud to be one of the nation’s top environmental firms delivering practical solutions that balance today’s financial, environmental, and regulatory challenges. We apply our nationwide expertise to local problems through our network of regional and local offices.

As we develop and implement solutions, we maintain a high level of responsiveness to our clients’ environmental concerns. SCS employs individuals with a combination of skills and experience in engineering, natural and physical sciences, construction, project management, and operations to support our solid waste clients’ needs and enhance project value.

SCS regularly works with clients in the private and public sectors to plan for, permit, design, and implement facilities and programs safely and economically. We manage all types of solid wastes, including hazardous and by-product wastes, nationwide and globally.

In response to client needs for “one-stop shopping,” SCS Field Services and SCS Energy were established decades ago as operating units within SCS to provide complete Design | Build | Operation & Maintenance services. We then added SCS Technology and SCS Tracer to provide the full spectrum of monitoring and risk-avoidance services because we know from experience that our environmental specialists’ preventive measures are safer and good for business.
