Managing Recoverable Organic Waste Streams

US Ecology's Thermal Recycling Service offers a unique recycling solution to any market sector that generates recoverable organic waste. Building off of over 10 years of success recycling organic refinery waste, our Subpart-X permit enables us to operate as a Verified Recycler making your waste streams potentially eligible for exemption from RCRA status while lowering liability and cost.

  • Petroleum wastes
