At the receiving end, Clean Harbors has more than 50 company-owned facilities representing the largest network of waste management facilities in North America. Its assets include five thermal treatment Resource Conservation and Recovery Act/Toxic Substances Control Act (RCRA/TSCA) incinerators that are capable of treating several hundred million pounds of waste per year utilizing fluidized bed, rotary kiln and liquid injection technologies.
Clean Harbors also has nine state-of-the-art RCRA/TSCA landfills with fully engineered liner and leachate collection systems that utilize direct disposal, chemical treatment, metals stabilization and macro/microencapsulation techniques.
The company also provides disposal for NORM and TENORM (technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material) wastes at its own fully permitted Subtitle C landfills.
In addition to disposal services, Clean Harbors offers a range of solvent materials recycling services as well as oil re-refining through Clean Harbors’ Safety-Kleen subsidiary, the largest re-refiner and recycler of used oil in North America. Solvent recovery includes a full range of solvent recycling options from traditional recycling to tolling. Tolling programs pro-vide a closed-loop cycle in which the customer’s spent solvents are recycled to its precise specifications and returned directly to the customer. Closed-loop oil re-refining removes contaminants and returns used oil as branded EcoPower engine oils that meet or exceed manufacturers’ specifications.
