Tighe & Bond provides comprehensive, innovative strategies to help communities plan for current and future solid waste disposal needs, including transfer facilities and assistance procuring transportation and disposal contracts. Volume reduction tactics, such as post-consumer recycling and composting, are an integral part of the plans we design.

Closure plans include design of the cap, leachate treatment systems and venting systems for landfill gases, as well as monitoring well design. Our team of experts handles permitting, oversees construction and any ongoing monitoring required.
