WASTE MANAGEMENT PLANNING AND PERMITTING PROFESSIONAL
Golder’s waste consulting practice in the Northeast Americas region is built around our team of highly qualified waste specialists and associated professionals in Ontario, Quebec and the northeastern United States, supporting waste management projects including waste diversion, waste planning, waste system permitting, compliance, landfill expansions and design, including associated environmental assessments. There are currently over 25 persons in our region who operate in the field of waste management as their main area of practice, including more than 10 senior professionals in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ottawa, as well as in Montreal, New York State and Maine. This group is connected to other waste management professionals elsewhere across North America and internationally through our direct internal network.
Golder Associates is currently seeking an experienced Solid Waste Management Planning and Permitting Professional for our Northeast Americas operations, focusing initially on Ontario. Our ideal candidate will be a self-starter, with the ability to work regionally and nationally to grow a waste planning practice in support of municipal and private clients in the solid waste, manufacturing, mining and oil and gas industries. Experience in permitting of waste management facilities is also desirable to complement the primary waste planning aspect of this position, as is knowledge of organics processing technologies. An understanding of current waste policies and guidelines and their impact on the waste planning needs of municipal clients, as well as an ability to engage public and private sector clients will be a key aspect of success.
As a waste management planner for Golder you will design, implement, and coordinate comprehensive waste management plans and systems to maximize waste prevention and diversion, and assess alternatives including waste disposal, recycling, export, etc. from a community/social, economic and technical perspective based on current and anticipated waste management processing technologies and current marketplaces. You will establish waste management goals and objectives, working with public (municipal) and private sector clients to help implement waste management policies, and evaluate the success of management plans. You will prepare waste management strategies and lead teams of consultants, engineers, and processing experts in waste planning projects. Experience in waste audits, waste handling and storage methods and an understanding of waste diversion and disposal policies for both hazardous and non-hazardous waste in relation to current Ontario regulations (and elsewhere) is important. You will assess options for waste management equipment, determine specifications for collecting and processing specific wastes and identify opportunities to reduce waste generation.
POSITION LOCATION AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The position will be located in one of our Greater Toronto Area (GTA) offices of Mississauga, Whitby or Markham and will require travel in Ontario to other Golder offices and clients. With support from our current waste group leaders and staff, it is expected that you will develop a small team of professionals to work on waste planning and waste permitting projects, which will include existing and new staff in the GTA and Ottawa office locations. Your medium-term goal will be to establish a sustainable waste planning practice in Ontario, which is integrated within our larger waste permitting, compliance and waste system engineering practice.
In this role you will participate in a broad range of business development, proposal, design, costing, and implementation duties. Specific duties are expected to include:
