Q. What sort of criteria should I use to select an environmental cleanup company? 

A. Because there are many state, federal, and local laws regarding waste, transport, and environmental cleanups, it’s essential you select the right environmental company to avoid penalties and complications. No matter what industry you’re in, here are a few general tips for choosing an environmental cleanup company:

Q. What type of environmental cleanups are you equipped to handle?

A. An environmental cleanup refers to specific actions that must be taken to deal effectively with a hazardous substance or contaminant that poses a threat to humans or the environment. Rather than a preventative measure, environmental cleanup typically involves a remedial action plan (one that’s initiated as a corrective response to something such as an oil spill for example). Our environmental cleanup services include, but are not limited to, the following: 

  • Site assessments 
  • Sump and pit cleanouts 
  • Site remediation and closure 
  • Asbestos and lead abatement 
  • Oil and chemical spills
  • Pond cleaning and closure
  • Land application projects
  • Tank cleaning projects

Q. Are there specific environmental cleanup laws I need to understand?

A. Whether your environmental cleanup necessitates the removal of contaminants from the soil, surface water, or groundwater, there are specific environmental cleanup laws in effect. There are usually laws governing the type of party that may provide environmental cleanup services, as well as rules regulating the acceptable emergency response timeframe, site assessment, liability, feasibility studies, remedial action, and site re-usage. Certain types of environmental cleanups pose more of a threat to human health or the environment and must be dealt with immediately. Rest assured we’re experienced with environmental cleanups of all types and sizes, and we can advise you accordingly. 

Q. What types of environmental cleanup methods do you use and recommend? 

A. Our experienced waste management company in Houston uses advanced environmental cleanup methods to provide you the best service possible. We’ve dealt with groundwater pumping and treatment, wastewater treatment,  byproduct and co-product recovery solutions, waste analysis, and hazardous waste transport and disposal. It’s worth noting that there isn’t a “one size fits all” approach to environmental cleanups. The kind of treatment we recommend will vary depending on your situation and location, as well as the type of mediums being impacted and the extent of that impact. We’ll evaluate the geological conditions and regulatory guidelines in your area thoroughly before taking a course of action. 

Wastewater treatment methods may involve the application of physical forces or removing contaminants through the addition of certain chemicals or the removal of biodegradable organic substances. Be sure to check out our blogs for more information regarding our proven waste management and environmental cleanup techniques.
