Providing Cost-Effective, Responsible Solid Waste Management is a Challenge

Both local governments and private waste companies understand that providing quality solid waste management services requires a balance of customer service, environmental stewardship, and regulatory compliance at an affordable rate. There are a wide range of solid waste management alternatives available today to address the unique challenges and preferences of each community. Navigating through these alternatives and applying the best solution for your community is critical in successful implementation of long-term and sustainable solid waste services.

At Great West, we understand the complexity of solid waste management and the difficult decisions local governments and private solid waste companies are facing.  Over the last 30 years, we have worked with more than 50 solid waste clients on hundreds of projects in Montana, Idaho, Washington and the greater Northwest region. This experience is invaluable to our clients by providing comprehensive engineering and solid waste solutions that are tailored to the unique challenges and scale of their communities. We help plan and implement sound alternatives that include landfill expansion and master planning, expansion of waste diversion activities, waste transfer facilities, closures, operational improvements, as well as many others.

We strive to develop long-term client relationships that are based on quality communications, responsiveness, and high-value service to help our clients succeed. Through successful implementation of hundreds of solid waste projects, we have developed strong and trusting relationships with regulators in each state which is a reflection on our client’s track record of success.
