Secure and Reliable Disposal Options

With over 65 years of industry experience, US Ecology has pioneered cost-effective, secure and reliable disposal options for radioactive waste. Our facilities are highly engineered, secure, RCRA subtitle C landfills, featuring multiple-liner cell design and post-closure funding. US Ecology’s national high-capacity, high-volume facilities are rail and truck served.

 

Our teams of professionals offering waste services provide guidance and assistance for proper characterization and sampling methods to verify waste meets our waste acceptance criteria (WAC). We also evaluate available treatment and disposal options based on the waste characterization and assist in development of an aggregation plan, if required, to comply with the WAC requirements at our RCRA Subtitle-C facilities.
