We provide a multi-discipline capability to successfully deal with the problems that could develop over the lifetime of a waste management project. Our specialist scientists provide advice and design services in connection with leachates and landfill gas. This includes treatability testing, consent negotiations, compliance monitoring, the conceptual and detailed design of effluent treatment facilities, and effluent treatment process audits and optimisation.

In the commercial and industrial sector, Hyder Consulting works closely with client to examine how they produce, store and treat waste on their premises. We help uncover methods to minimise that waste and re-use or recycle apparent waste.
