Veris Environmental, LLC and AWS Dredge, LLC are committed to providing our customers with high quality, least cost solutions that are environmentally sound and sustainable – these commitments identify us as leaders in the industry.
Veris Environmental provides a complete and professional residuals management service. Based upon our collective agricultural backgrounds, Veris has developed a large permitted land base in Colorado for biosolids application. We also have permitted land for biosolids application in most of the western US.
Veris provides a turnkey operation that is virtually odor free, clean and non-offensive to neither neighbors nor the general public. Furthermore, our program is managed in a manner that is truly acceptable to the farmer and the agricultural community in general.
The equipment used meets or exceeds all operational, safety and insurance standards as set forth by the industry or by statute. The land application process is strictly monitored for permit compliance and public acceptance. Veris actually encourages representatives of the generator and regulatory authorities to visit our application sites. Our programs have been used many times by the CDPH&E and USEPA as the standard in the State of Colorado and as examples of a sound land application program.

We Serve Our Clients by Working with Their Local Community
We believe that the transportation and land application are the highest profile aspects of this industry. Accordingly, public relations and public acceptance are critical aspects of our company’s program. We represent ourselves in a professional, courteous and positive manner with any concerns or questions that are raised by the public being promptly addressed.
The quality of our services, our rapport with the agricultural community and our track record with the regulators and other clients are keys which set us apart from others in the industry.
We Don’t Dispose of Waste – We Recycle and Build for the Future
Veris views land application of biosolids and other residuals as a recycling project and a fertilizer operation rolled into one. We do not dispose of waste. We provide fertilizer for privately owned farmland in a manner which benefits the farmer while meeting the needs of our clients. This is performed in an environmentally and agronomically responsible manner.
Who We Are
Veris Environmental was formed by the merger of two companies, Parker Ag Services and Liquid Waste Management.
Both were biosolid management companies and is what Veris Environmental continues to do today.
Together with a sister company, AWS Dredge in Utah, we are family-owned and professionally managed. Through our life-long involvement in farming, we recognize the value of biosolids and similar organic residuals.
What We Do
Veris Environmental primarily provides services to municipal wastewater systems operating in the western United States.
The Clean Water Act of 1972 requires, in part, municipalities to clean the water used by its constituents before it is discharged to the waters of the United States.
During the treatment processes implemented by these municipalities, nutrient rich biosolids are produced.
Veris recycles those nutrients for production agricultural in a safe and environmentally sound method.
AWS Dredge works with mine and industrial sites to reprocess or recycle byproducts which provides environmental remediation in a way that otherwise, if left alone, the byproducts might have posed a threat to the environment.
