Waste Disposal Operations

With a significant number of companies all over the world becoming increasingly aware of the impact they are having on the environment, many are becoming more proactive in relation to eco-friendly ways to improve their everyday waste management practices.

The concept of waste management is extremely comprehensive in its attempts to streamline and reduce the amount of energy, manpower, money and time that goes into the overall process, which typically includes the following:

  • Waste monitoring
  • Waste reduction
  • Waste treatment
  • Waste storage
  • Waste removal
  • Waste recycling

Environmental considerations are always taken into account as much as humanly possible, particularly to reduce damage to the surrounding areas as well as the health and general wellbeing of humans and animals that live nearby. However, in many cases, landfill disposal is the only means of industrial and municipal solid waste management, as well as hazardous waste-related disposal or storage. When it comes to hazardous waste landfills, waste management practices vary not only between developed and developing countries, but also by geography. For example, urbanized areas may utilize alternative techniques to those residing in the countryside.

Historically, badly designed, mismanaged or outdated landfill sites were a haven for vermin and disease, with people living in close proximity frequently falling victim to all kinds of serious health issues. Furthermore, the presence of landfill leachate exacerbated conditions. Nowadays, the use of industrial landfill covers, liners and capping systems successfully aids in the waste disposal process.

Solid Waste Management Products

Watershed Geo creates and manufactures solid waste management products that provide safer and more sanitary landfill areas, as well as also improving storm water runoff and reducing landfill methane gas emissions and the production of leachate.

VersaCap® Waste Management

VersaCap™ Waste Management

VersaCap™ is an engineered turf landfill cover that, unlike other traditional exposed geomembrane covers, does not have to be replaced in the future, its strong polyethylene (PE) geomembrane backing assists in gas collection early in the landfill cycle, decreases soil erosion and limits gas odor. A VersaCap® installation means reduced maintenance expenses, and the product can last a decade or longer.

ClosureTurf® Waste Management

ClosureTurf® Waste Management

ClosureTurf® is an engineered Subtitle D compliant system that is specifically designed to address and solve soil erosion failure, gas system failure, and promote slope integrity, as well as reduce gas emissions. Furthermore, its unique horizontal Surficial Gas System offers a far more efficient process of collecting gas emissions than the labor-intensive vertical system of pipes and wells that are characteristically employed by traditional landfill closure systems. It also ensures the longevity and durability of landfills from a structural standpoint and is suitable for final landfill closures (full closures or incremental closures). ClosureTurf is effective in managing industrial solid waste, municipal solid waste, hazardous waste and coal combustion residuals.
