Solid and Hazardous Waste Management

The siting, construction and operation of solid and hazardous waste management facilities are typically challenging endeavors, often due to concerns about potential human health and environmental impacts as well as regulatory agency permit requirements related to these potential impacts. The CPF Principals have a long history of practical experience, unparalleled expertise and outstanding accomplishments in addressing these issues.

The CPF principals have participated in hundreds of waste management projects for municipalities, the private sector, government agencies, and law firms.

We use state-of-the-art scientific tools – risk assessment, toxicology, epidemiology, life cycle analysis, and environmental impact analysis – to address public health and environmental concerns associated with waste management technologies. Our work has been successfully conducted at municipal, C&D, hazardous, agricultural, and biosolids management facilities including landfills, recycling facilities, treatment units, waste-to-energy facilities and incinerators.
