Solid Waste / Environmental

Baker & Associates is a leader in the planning, design, and permitting of solid waste projects. We have developed custom programs for small and large communities and regional planning areas, offering complete civil and environmental engineering services in these fields. Our personnel have a broad experience base, addressing various customer needs.

Baker & Associates developed one of the first comprehensive solid waste management plans that specifically addressed the problems that arise in rural, sparsely populated, areas. The plan led to the design of a Subtitle D landfill, which took top honors in the Environmental E2 Division at the America Council of Engineering Companies national awards competition.

We have been involved in a number of feasibility and efficiency studies for various landfill operations in the area. Recently we completed the eastern Wyoming Regional Solid Waste Study which looked at the viability for regionalization of various communities compared to continued operation of smaller local landfills.

Baker & Associates has been a leader and innovator in the use of balers for small landfills in the region. When run properly, baler facilities allow a landfill operation to reduce the overall footprint and extend the life of the facility as well as improve sanitary conditions in and around the landfill by reducing blowing trash.

Additional improvements we have helped with include recycling plans, improvements to maintenance operations and daily cover, and overall efficiency evaluations.
