Regulatory Compliance
Our staff of highly-trained and qualified personnel has extensive experience in the complete range of environmental, waste characterization, and transportation regulations including U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC), U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE), and U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) regulations and requirements.

Development of Waste Management Plans and Procedures
In order to ensure that each project is executed in an efficient and compliant manner, project plans and procedures are developed in support of all of our waste management projects.   From site characterization through disposal, our plans consistently guide project activities to successful conclusion. 

Waste Characterization
We prepare and implement Sampling and Analysis Plans and procedures in order to ensure compliant waste characterization on each project.  The evaluation and interpretation of analytical results is used to ensure that proper hazardous waste determinations are made in compliance with applicable site, local, state, and Federal regulations.

Waste Shipment Technical Support and Management
Following waste characterization, we prepare waste profile documentation to ensure the successful receipt and disposal of waste at the selected disposal facility.  On behalf of our Customers, we manage the waste acceptance process from start to finish with the treatment and/or disposal facility.

Packaging of Waste Materials and Removal of Contaminated Materials
We work with our Customers to define and select the most efficient type of packaging for each project.  We provide optimal packaging solutions, including the use of our highly efficient IP-1 Intermodal Containers, to ensure that all waste material is properly packaged and shipped off-site in a timely and safe manner.
