Recycling and Solid Waste Services Case Studies

Our recycling and solid waste practice focuses on assisting clients with planning diversion and Zero Waste programs, managing competitive RFP processes for contractor selection, negotiating contracts, determining and reviewing contractor compensation, and setting residential and commercial recycling, organics, and solid waste rates. In addition, we conduct reviews of contractor and municipal operator performance, records, and payments for accuracy and regulatory compliance.

Water and Wastewater Case Studies

Our water and wastewater practice focuses on assisting clients with financial planning, rate structure design and rate setting, connection/capacity fee development, cost allocation studies, cost of service assessments, and litigation and regulatory support resulting in defensible rates and charges for water-, wastewater-, stormwater-related programs.
