Responsible Solid Waste Management

Providing quality solid waste management services requires a balance of customer care, environmental stewardship and regulatory compliance at an affordable rate. At Great West Engineering, we understand the complexities of solid waste management and the difficult decisions local governments and private solid waste companies are facing to provide environmentally and fiscally responsible sanitation systems. Applying the best solution for your community is critically important for the successful implementation of long-term and sustainable solid waste management programs. Over the last 35 years, we have worked with almost 80 solid waste clients on hundreds of projects in Idaho, Montana, Washington, and the greater Northwest. This experience is invaluable to our clients by providing engineering and planning solutions that are tailored and scaled for the unique challenges facing your community. Solid waste management is not a one-size-fits all industry. Let our expert team of solid waste practitioners create a solution that best fits your community.

Our service portfolio spans the full spectrum of solid waste management, including landfill expansion and master planning, environmental monitoring services, comprehensive waste management planning, waste transfer station designs and improvements, landfill closures, landfill gas system designs and permitting, household hazardous waste management, operational audits, and many others. At Great West Engineering, we strive to develop long-term relationships with our clients that are based on quality communication, responsiveness, and high-value service. These fundamental practices have proven successful for us over the years, allowing us the opportunity to build strong relationships and become an extension of our client’s teams. These relationships are a reflection of our client’s track record of success.
