Providing Comprehensive Environmental Services for North America
Emergencies can happen anywhere and anytime at garage facilities, power stations, gas compression stations, cell towers and switching stations, and they can result from accidents and adverse weather. Clean Harbors is ready to take control of your emergency situation and make appropriate decisions that will minimize your costs and reduce your liabilities while protecting the environment. We have the resources to deploy any number of experienced 40-hour trained and certified workers to meet the needs of any incident.
Over-the-road incidents, subsurface structures such as manhole responses, or punctured lines, tank overflows, transformers "popping", leaking drums/totes, and saddle tank spills are the typical every day responses Clean Harbors makes for the Utility Industry. We can handle a wide range of hazardous materials including oil, gasoline, PCBs, and biological hazards.
One call to 1.800.OIL.TANK (1.800.645.8265) 24/7 from anywhere across North America, will connect you with Clean Harbors’ network of emergency response service centers.
Varying by the response, spills typically can be contained within the first few hours, with minimal remediation within the next 48 hours. Working under all the guidelines of local, state, provincial, and federal agencies, Clean Harbors will perform containment and begin cleanup.
Waste for off-site disposal is packaged and prepared for shipment by Clean Harbors to an approved waste treatment and disposal facility, most often that day. Clean Harbors can also provide long-term remediation or containment maintenance.
Under the U.S. Coast Guard’s (OSRO) Classification Program, Clean Harbors holds Captain of the Port ratings for facilities and vessels in over 40 ports. Our abilities include the deployment of hard boom and recovery of product on land and water. We can also store recovered product.
