John Wood

Global Practice Director

Managing waste has become more and more complex.

We take pride in being at the forefront of providing sustainable waste stream, resource and management solutions for government, industry and business.

We provide solutions that take advantage of technologies, best practices and expertise drawn from multiple industries.

From sustainable waste management planning to landfill closure, remediation and redevelopment, we are always looking to apply innovative technologies and systems to process, recycle, reuse and dispose of waste.

In fact, we have helped clients adapt emerging technologies to develop systems that achieve more than 85 percent recovery or reuse of materials previously destined for the landfill. 

While there is no shortage of waste, we have no shortage of knowledge and innovative solutions for your waste management challenges.

Increasingly stringent regulations and public concerns make siting and developing new solid waste management facilities a challenge, and closing an existing facility requires new and elaborate procedures intended to prevent future impacts on the environment.

To address the fact that managing solid wastes has become more and more complex, we have shifted the focus towards resource management and sustainable solid waste solutions.

Clients & Projects

Design and Construction Management

From to design to construction mangagement to final closure, of everything from landfills to engineered waste cells, we are helping our clients meet regulatory requirements while solving their toughest waste management challenges.


White Sands Missile Range Construction, Demolition and Asbestos Landfills Closure

CH2M constructed two landfill caps at the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) in New Mexico in accordance with the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED)-approved Closure Plan. Despite encountering site conditions that required design modifications, we engineered the landfill caps with no impact to cost and ahead of schedule. 


Landfill Leachate Treatment, Acme Fill Corporation, Martinez, California

CH2M provide the full suite of services for the Acme Landfill Leachate Treatment Project from treatability and toxicity testing to full-scale “prototype” leachate treatment plant design, construction management and operation.

I am very pleased with the work performed on the WSMR landfill closure. CH2M submitted the final report 2 weeks ahead of schedule. This was accomplished even though there were many challenges during the contract, including a period when GPS data was not reliable, a significant snow storm, and working around potential endangered species habitat.

Design and Consulting

We go beyond “reduce, reuse, recycle” of waste to potentially generate new revenue and help sustain the environment. 


Hidden Hollow Landfill Final Cover and Landfill Gas Collection System

We designed a phased final cover and gas collection system for the Hidden Hollow Landfill in Ada County, Idaho, with an innovative high evapotranspiration cover system, gas extraction wells and a collection system.  All this to prevent the concentration of methane in the cover soil so that vegetation could grow on the landfill final cover.
