For one of the world’s largest producers of lead acid batteries, efficient operation of their class II non-hazardous industrial waste landfill is critical for day to day facility waste management. Apex designed and implemented landfill expansion and disposal methodology changes to minimize facility operation cycle time. Modifications included waste placement, haul road alignments, contact and non-contact storm water management changes, interim cover and final cover designs that will significantly reduce waste exposure.
Apex developed and gained approval for a unique remediation and closure plan for two landfill sites totaling 280 acres that were impacted by the over-application of elemental sulfur across the surface of former rangeland. Apex’s alternative remedial techniques will save our client \$5 to \$6 million over methods proposed by others.
Effective solid waste programs are essential for peak operation of industrial and waste facilities. Increasingly complex regulations make managing solid waste more and more challenging. We help our clients build and maintain successful, compliant, and cost-effective solid waste programs. Our scientific, engineering, and field experts support design, permitting, installation, operation, closure and decommissioning of landfills for a variety of industrial and waste clients, keeping it simple when we can and pioneering innovative methods when needed to address even the most complex solid waste issues.
