Landfill Engineering and Design Services

Our focus includes application of time-tested and emerging techniques that enhance environmental performance while improving the facility’s bottom line.

Cornerstone’s engineers and scientists continue to be at the forefront of comprehensive landfill facility planning, design, permitting, construction, operations, closure, monitoring and compliance. While also developing and implementing new approaches to reduce, reuse and recycle, landfill operations remain the backbone of solid waste management.

For the foreseeable future, landfills are a necessary component of the waste management strategy, backstopping new initiatives and providing safe disposal of materials that cannot be recovered through other methods.
