Building Loyal Customer Relationships

A large industrial plant that coats creosote power poles in Texas has been a long-standing US Ecology customer for years using our waste transportation and disposal services at our Robstown, TX location. This RCRA Subtitle C, Part B facility provides treatment, secure disposal and recycling options for commercial and government entities.

Based on the positive experience with our waste transportation and disposal services, they chose US Ecology to manage a very urgent and timely need to clean their creosote autoclave units and tanks that had not been cleaned for seven years. Following a thorough site assessment, our experienced tank cleaning professionals completed the cleaning of five four-thousand-gallon tanks and two ten-thousand-gallon tanks in a very short timeframe. 

We utilized two air movers and twenty vacuum boxes to pump down the wash water and stored it for disposal in Robstown. Because the teams were working so far ahead of schedule, the customer asked the crews to also clean out a non-hazardous wastewater pit that had not been cleaned in several years. 

The customer was ecstatic with the pace and professionalism of our crew. Not only did we meet a tight schedule, but we also outperformed their budget by 18%, resulting in the customer contracting us for annual cleanings. They have also since added additional waste streams for disposal at our Robstown facility, taking advantage of cost savings through our turnkey programs.

We are committed to building long-lasting relationships with our customers to ensure safety, compliance and reliable service while protecting human health and the environment. Our highly trained professionals remain focused on managing complex environmental challenges to meet your needs and partner with you to create a more sustainable world.
