Environmental Monitoring & Environmental Planning and Permitting

Environmental MonitoringWe carry out routine monitoring of over 15 landfill sites, conducting site testing for landfill gases, ground and surface water and collection of samples for laboratory testing.

Environmental monitoring can be conducted:
