Coquitlam Transfer Station

Metro Vancouver’s new flagship transfer station is designed to process 600 tonnes per day of municipal solid waste. It offers both residential recycling and garbage drop-off for self-haul customers and large vehicle commercial and municipal garbage transfer. Morrison Hershfield has led a team of engineers to deliver this important project including programming, design and construction administration for the unique transfer station project, constructed on top of an existing landfill. Unique considerations include landfill gas management, conforming with landfill closure requirements and differential settlement. (Coquitlam, BC)


Waste-to-Energy Assessment

Morrison Hershfield was engaged to assess small-scale waste-to-energy technologies, long term costs and greenhouse gas emissions for potential facility implementation. From a request for information, three vendors were shortlisted for further assessment. Based on information provided by the vendors detailed cost models were prepared to review potential long term costs for the residual waste management system. Morrison Hershfield was then brought on to provide a continued review of one of the technologies. (Courtenay, BC)


Compost Facility Feasibility Study

A feasibility study was conducted to determine technologies, approaches and costs for a new composting facility. It was determined that a compost facility would extend the RDKS landfill’s lifespan considerably while reducing GHG emissions and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) content in landfill leachate.
