Solid Waste Management


Hi, I’m Trevor Mahoney, Solid Waste Management lead at Trace Associates Inc. (Trace). Trace works with clients to ensure that solid waste management facilities are properly designed and well managed, so that the facilities are a valuable resource rather than an environmental liability.

At Trace, we understand that solid waste management is an evolving science and a complex art that relies on the interdependencies of many elements associated with the design, development, operation, and final closure of solid waste management facilities. We support public and private clients who design, build, and manage landfills, transfer stations, composting facilities, and more. Regardless of the size of the project, the Trace team offers a full range of services and uses emerging technologies to produce quality results - on time and on budget!

what our clients are saying

“We like Trace. We like Ron, we like Nick, and we like the relationships we’ve built on our projects with them. They have a suite of services that cover the ecological and environmental, and they have demonstrated that they understand what needs to be done, aren’t doing unnecessary work, and they make sure it gets done. Ron told me that the Trace motto is to 'consult better.' This motto is reflected in the service they provide.”

Confidential Client

“Trace provides a level of personal service that we don’t get from other companies. We get straightforward, open communication with Project Managers, including frequent touch-points. Trace always does what they say they are going to do.”

Neil Reid | Midstream Energy Client

“I choose Trace because of their expertise and clarity on what they will deliver, and my trust in them. We share similar values of honesty and communication. They’re very thoughtful in what they do and their expertise is very appreciated. Nothing they do or say leaves you scratching your head.”

“I value our relationship with Trace and can see it continuing into the future.  Having a third party come in to do environmental inspections is very helpful and gives added focus on areas that might otherwise be neglected due to the busy nature of the business. Trace's expertise in the Environmental Consultant field helps keep NorSask on a path of continuous improvement. We very much appreciate the proactive approach that Trace takes to meet our needs.”
