Solid and Liquid Wastes
Converse can assist property owners and business with the appropriate characterization and disposal of solid and liquid wastes. Wastes of concern may result from sources such as: undocumented discarded material/soil, wastes from industrial, commercial, mining, and agricultural operations, environmental assessment or remedial operations, and from community activities, sludges, refuse, or garbage. We also can make hazardous waste determinations and help you to appropriately manage your waste materials to help with waste minimization, including the correct classification for conditionally exempt small quantity generator (CESQG), small quantity generator (SQG), or large quantity generator (LQG).
Converse has decades of experience providing consulting services for private and municipally managed landfills in the United States. We are actively working at several landfills, conducting groundwater compliance monitoring and sampling, tracking pumping volumes, leachate sampling, landfill gas (LFG) sampling as it relates to bio treatment and total reduced sulfur (TRS), and various NPDES discharge sampling. Converse can assist with the preparation of landfill design, and cap/closure plans. Converse can also provide inspection and monitoring services related to the operation of methane gas mitigation systems, as well as groundwater monitoring and remediation systems.
