Solid Waste Service Provider Partners for Sustainable Design

Challenge

La Crosse County’s Solid Waste System is an award‐winning provider of solid waste services to five counties and 27 municipalities in Wisconsin and Minnesota. With a waste-to-energy program; a 350‐acre landfill complex; a landfill gas‐to‐energy system; and more than a dozen landfill diversion and materials reuse programs, the County wanted a single firm that could meet all of its diverse planning, engineering, scientific and public outreach needs.

Solution

A five-year master services agreement to deliver all technical and public outreach services was implemented in 2009, and extended for an additional five years in 2014.
