We also dispose of non-RCRA solids, liquids and sludge.
The EPA defines solid waste as any garbage or refuse, sludge from a wastewater treatment plant, water supply treatment plant, or air pollution control facility and other discarded material, including solid, liquid, semi-solid, or contained gaseous material resulting from industrial, commercial, mining, and agricultural operations, and from community activities. Municipal solid waste is commonly known as trash or garbage. Industrial waste is made up of a wide variety of materials that result from the production of goods and products chemical waste and materials chemicals and process wastes.
When appropriate, non-hazardous solids can be sent to facilities that will receive your waste, mixing it with wastes from other generators and assuming possession of it. Landfill is often the final disposal method. Liquids should be managed by wastewater treatment if possible for cost considerations. Liquids that do not meet wastewater treatment criteria can be solidified and landfilled. Sludge is virtually always solidified and landfilled. The disposal options for non-hazardous wastes include shipping to local facilities to keep transportation costs down. When feasible, we can also convert hazardous waste into non-hazardous waste onsite.
