Ross River and Deep Creek Abandoned Landfills

An environmental site assessment was completed and a simple but effective closure plan was developed for an abandoned dump in order to determine permanent closure options. Our team provided a modified closure plan that would minimize human an environmental health risks. (Ross River and Deep Creek, Yukon)


City of Wetaskiwin Landfill

The solid waste management plan and landfill development plan developed by Morrison Hershfield helped the City establish a strategic direction and planning framework for waste management. The new landfill development plan will guide landfilling activities for the next twenty years. (Wetaskiwin, AB)


Bigstone Cree Nation Engineered Landfill

As the unengineered landfill was reaching capacity, Morrison Hershfield provided the siting, multi-disciplinary design and construction QA/QC to meet the community’s current and future solid waste management needs. (Wabasca, AB)




Landfills require pragmatic solutions that are cost-effective, sustainable, and tailored to each community’s specific needs while satisfying all regulatory requirements. Our solid waste team has planned, designed, and assessed over 100 landfills for municipal and private-sector clients, and we can assist with every stage of a landfill’s life cycle, from facility planning and design to operational reviews, compliance reviews and closure.

We help you optimize your landfill sites and provide you with the best possible service at the lowest possible price. We do this by incorporating innovative designs, fill and sequence planning, and working with landfill operators to incorporate operational efficiencies into our designs and master plans.
