Waste and Recycling Facility Services

Waste and Recycling services brought to you by Cambridge. We have over 28 years of experience in the solid waste industry. We know that there is a wide range of factors that play into developing a new facility or modifying an existing site for a solid waste management facility – including customer type, hours of operations, types of material, tonnage per day processed, loading equipment, and round-trip distance from the landfill.

Waste and Recycling Expertise

Transfer Stations

Transfers Stations are an essential piece of any solid waste management plan and are used to reduce the distance waste disposal trucks need to drive
to move garbage to a landfill site.

We offer a wide spectrum of services for transfer stations and the solid waste industry. We know that heavily-used transfer stations require maintenance and renovations to continue performing at their best. With over 20 years of experience, our team provides consulting and construction services to build a new transfer station or renovate your existing facility.

Transfer Station Repairs

While renovating an existing facility is often a more cost-effective or space-efficient option, the Cambridge Companies team can provide the functionality evaluations and design strategies that will help you lower costs and increase productivity.

Hauling Companies

Hauling Companies keep the waste industry moving.

Cambridge Companies can assist you with the process of designing and building these facilities for your solid waste operations. We can assist you with finding the correct site while also working with you to stay within your budget through the entire process.

Container and Compactor Repair Facilities

One of the major revenue streams of any solid waste company are their containers and compactors. It’s important you have facilities designed to properly service, maintain and re-build these important assets.

Cambridge has designed and built dozens of facilities that suit this specific need and can work with you and your team to properly size the facility to service the number of containers you need and also design the proper locations of the equipment required to repair them. Many of our customers have also incorporated paint booths into these facilities, which can be tricky for permitting, but very beneficial for your long-term efficiency and cost-management.

Landfill Sites/Shops

Cambridge Companies has the capabilities to design and construct a number of required buildings or facilities at landfill sites.

These facilities need to be functional for the needs of the landfill where it is being built. Cambridge Companies designs these facilities to meet your needs at a specific location. Our design and construction teams are there to work with you throughout the entire process to ensure the facility meets all of your requirements.

Solidification Pits

Solidification Pits are important to help maintain the structural stability at any landfill that takes liquid wastes. These can be temporary or permanent and the construction methods will vary by state and specific liquids received.

Cambridge has designed and built several different types of solidification pits including concrete or steel, covered or open, deep, or shallow. It all depends on the location you want to place them within the landfill, the quantity of liquids received daily, the type of material you are using to solidify the liquid, how long you want to let it sit and “cook” to get solid, the climate you are in and several other factors. We can help you figure out these specifics to get you the pits you need to service your customers.

Leachate Pre-Treatment Facilities

Lack of or improper management of leachate poses the risk of contaminating surface and groundwater near a landfill site. Many modern landfills are constructed with impermeable bottoms designed to contain leachate.

Cambridge Companies has worked on multiple facilities that assist landfills in the design and build of leachate processing facilities.  We can help you determine what you need and work with you to build a lasting facility for your landfill needs.

Organics Process Centers

As the requirements grow within the United States to divert organics from the landfills, it will be all that more important to modify your operations to comply with the new regulations. There are many ways to deal with organics and Cambridge can help you develop the right solution for your material.

Cambridge has many partners within the United States that we can work with to help determine your needs for diversion based on your material stream and then help to develop the right process to hit the requirements of your regulations. There are many different materials and many different methods to learn and understand, so building the right team around you that can lead you down the right path is very important in today’s ever-changing environment. This isn’t an overnight process, so let us help you determine your diversion goals and create the plan to reach those goals over the next several years.
