As part of Delaware County’s goal to continue to utilize their
existing landfill site, they embarked on extensive efforts to
re-define their solid waste management goals and objectives. In
order to do so the County assembled a team of planning specialists
who focused on centralised and integrated solid waste management
and watershed planning issues.
As part of the overall strategy to fully
utilise the existing landfill property, GHD successfully identified
a solution to continue development of solid waste disposal and
processing facilities at the County’s Solid Waste Management Center
that satisfied environmental, regulatory, and watershed management
standards. These efforts included: solid waste management planning;
development of aggressive recycling and landfill diversion
strategies; integration of multiple town transfer stations;
biosolids management; wetlands evaluation; landfill siting study
and permitting; landfill design and construction services; and
municipal solid waste (MSW) co-composting facility development.
