Waste Management

Site Remediation

 

EAP's site remediation services include:

 

  1. Facility and equipment decontamination and decommissioning projects, many of which include working with highly hazardous contaminants

  2. Large-scale soil remediation projects

  3. Large scale transformer decommissioning projects

  4. Asbestos abatement projects

 

EAP will complete an evaluation of your facilities' remedial needs and create a comprehensive plan of action that will be completed safely, thoroughly, and in compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations. 

 

Hazardous Waste

 

The term "hazardous waste" is defined under RCRA as solids, liquids, and gases that exhibit certain characteristics or are specifically listed in the rules.

 

Hazardous waste is regulated under a “cradle to grave” concept, meaning that written records are maintained as it's trucked - from the time it becomes a waste. Ownership remains with the generator forever.  

 

The best method to reduce the risk of future remediation cost is to reduce the amount of hazardous waste generated. When a project is in proposal stage, it is essential to consider both the amount and type of waste that will be generated. This also ensures that a disposal method exists that is both legal and affordable – and minimizes the amount of waste generated.  

 

Waste can fall under the category of heavy metals, organic and inorganic compounds, character and listed as well as universal waste disposal and recycling.

A generator must perform a “waste determination” to see if a waste is regulated under RCRA. That determination can be based on the generator’s knowledge of the waste composition or through chemical analysis if the composition is unknown.  

 

Documentation supporting this waste determination must be kept on file for three years.  Hazardous waste must be packaged and transported in accordance with strict procedures and guidelines.

 

EAP can assist in all aspects of this process.

 

Drums and Labpacks

 

We provide waste identification, sampling, analysis, drum labeling, inventories and coordinating the pickup and transportation to a proper waste disposal facility, along with a complete lab pack service including characterization and classification of laboratory chemicals, including unknowns.

 

Bulk Solid and Liquid and Sludges

 

With EAP ‘s fleet of semi trailers, dump trucks, and vacuum trailers, roll off boxes and vacuum boxes, disposal of bulk solid and liquid waste can be accomplished efficiently implementing strict transport regulations for Federal, State and Local agencies. EAP can assist in characterization and profiling hazardous waste for disposition as well as loading and transportation.

Contaminated Soils

 

Soil contamination is the presence of man-made chemicals or other alteration to the natural soil environment.  Contaminates typically include the use of pesticides and herbicides, percolation of contaminated surface water to subsurface strata, and direct discharge of industrial waste to the soil.  EAP can characterize, transport and take care of disposal needs for various contaminated soils.

Empty Containers

 

Containers represent one of the most commonly used and diverse forms of units for hazardous waste storage. Compared to tanks or surface impoundments, containers are less expensive and generally less difficult to manage. Containers are also mobile, allowing an owner or operator to use only one unit for storage, transportation, and disposal. However, prior to regulation under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), containers were frequently

mismanaged or abandoned.

 

When abandoned containers become weathered or corroded, hazardous contents are released, posing a far-reaching danger to human health and the environment. Rules for residues in containers are found in 40 CFR Section 261.7.  Proper disposition and labeling is required and necessary for a clean environment.

 

EAP has the personnel and equipment necessary for complying with these regulations.
