Cheyenne, Wyo., Selects Firm to Complete Solid Waste Management Plan

Burns & McDonnell will develop and support implementation of an integrated solid waste management plan for the city.

The city of Cheyenne, Wyo., has selected Burns & McDonnell to develop and support implementation of an integrated solid waste management (ISWM) plan. The project will help guide future activities and support infrastructure, programs and policies needed to manage the city’s solid waste.

“To provide the most effective, high-quality service to residents and business owners now and in the future, we’re working with Burns & McDonnell to develop a comprehensive program for solid waste management,” said Matt Theriault, Cheyenne public works engineer, in a statement. “We want to continue focusing on quantifiable, efficient waste and recycling services that meet the needs of the community.”

Burns & McDonnell will complete a cost of service assessment to identify current and forecasted costs of all solid waste management services, including garbage collection, recycling programs and landfill operations. This assessment will help inform and prioritize elements of the ISWM plan the firm will also develop.

“Having completed a study of the city of Cheyenne’s collection operations in 2017, we understand the existing solid waste program, processes in place and the community’s needs,” said Matt Evans, associate civil engineer at Burns & McDonnell, in a statement. “We’re excited to support solid waste management initiatives in Cheyenne and help identify sustainable, effective and manageable solutions.”

Burns & McDonnell’s growing workforce of more than 400 environmental professionals is focused on providing integrated environmental services—from planning and permitting to compliance and remediation—for clients nationwide. For nearly 40 years, Burns & McDonnell has assisted local governments throughout the U.S to improve solid waste programs.
