Leadership, Value, and Synergy

HF&H is a consulting firm that specializes in the areas of recycling and solid waste and water/wastewater management services. For 25 years, we have provided leadership, expertise, independence, and support to nearly 400 municipal agencies. Throughout our history, we have assisted communities with the development, implementation, and integration of sustainability principles and practices. We incorporate these principles and practices in our core solid waste and water/wastewater consulting services, which include:

Managing Tomorrows Resources Today
HF&H is proud to have participated in the enormous environmental strides that have taken place over the past two decades. During that time, we have provided consulting services on projects that have impacted over 50% of the state's population by diverting 36 million tons of recyclables from landfills, avoiding the emission of over 69 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents, and creating more than 8,000 full-time green jobs. We've done all this while minimizing market risk to our clients and reducing the cost of providing these services to residents. Our commitment to future generations continues. We believe that the best way to contribute to a sustainable future is by "Managing Tomorrow's Resources Today."

Local Focus/Global Awareness
Although HF&H has been engaged by clients throughout the country, our focus is on California. With offices located in Northern California and Southern California, we have an in-depth understanding of both state-wide and regional conditions.

HF&H offers both the breadth of experience of a national firm and the responsiveness, accountability, and personal commitment of a local firm. Our leadership and staff of accountants, economists, engineers, and management consultants create a synergy that is rarely achieved by "single-specialty" companies.

Our mission is to provide services of superior value and quality. We focus on each engagement's objectives with an understanding of each client's broader goals. We take pride in our high degree of client satisfaction and our reputation as one of the top recycling and solid waste management consulting firms in the western United States.

In order to effectively assist our clients, HF&H professionals remain intimately familiar with the latest legal, regulatory, and industry advancements. We follow the development and application of environmental legislation, incorporating changes as they affect our clients and the communities they serve.
