Providing Comprehensive Environmental Services for North America
Clean Harbors Transformer Services provide safe, cost-effective, recycling and disposal of transformers and other oil filled electrical equipment. The recycling and disposal can be conducted onsite or at one of our permitted facilities.
Clean Harbors can operate as the customer’s onsite waste / asset management team. Units are tested to determine PCB content as well as expected lifespan and segregated for reuse or disposal. Clean Harbors can follow up this service with complete draining, loading, transportation and disposal capabilities.
Clean Harbors offers a comprehensive Investment Recovery Program that provides our customers with revenue for their scrap, obsolete electrical equipment. All recycling activities are managed in our permitted facilities.
Equipment for disposal is shipped to a Clean Harbors facility for carcass destruction. Transformers are segregated and sent to a smelter for resource recovery.
Units can be drained at the customer’s site into drums, totes or tankers, or at a Clean Harbors facility. Most oils go through our permitted dechlorination process.
On-site laboratories are capable of analyzing for PCB contamination of almost any type of material. Clean Harbors also offers field sampling services for all types of electrical equipment.
Our unique tracking system provides complete records of the acceptable treatment and disposition of every unit received utilizing unique identification numbers and bar codes assigned by Clean Harbors’ central waste tracking system. Units without test results are tested to certify PCB status. A Certificate of Destruction is issued to the generator following the processing completion for all transformer components and any oil for treatment.
Clean Harbors transformer disposal capabilities are complemented and supported by our onsite draining, dismantling, rigging and transportation services.
