Hazardous Waste is a highly regulated business in Washington State. Regulations are confusing and hard to follow. Our experienced waste management professionals can designate, and, if necessary test your waste. Then we will contact the various waste disposal facilities in the are and find the most cost effective management method for your business. We will then work for the disposal facility and profile your waste, transport it and ensure safe delivery to the disposal facility.
If you have a type of waste that doesn't meet the requirements of hazardous waste, we have a little bit of leeway in how we dispose of your industrial waste. First, we need to make sure that we have appropriately documented that it is indeed non-hazardous. Next, we will try to find an recycling or reuse option. As a final option, we will coordinate with a local landfill for the disposal of the material.
If there is an option to reuse or recycle your waste, that will be our first priority. Our earth has limited resources and it is our responsibility to make a good faith attempt to find a recycling option. Usually it is a cheaper option (not always) and it take ones waste and turned it into someone else's commodity - ultimately conserving earths resources.
