Testimonial

“Your field service teams have been pleasant to work with, especially given the circumstances and work load they are under to assist a myriad of businesses with their COVID-19 issues and concerns. I have shared the positive results from Clean Harbors efforts and response times with our Executive Committee. Thanks for all you do as well to support the O’Reilly team. It is reassuring to know you have valued business partners to call for support when needed.“

– John Bounds, EH&S Manager, O’Reilly Auto Parts

 

“We were ground zero with the first case of a COVID-19 infected school district employee in the state of Oregon. The District was informed of the presumed infection on a Friday night and made the decision to close the impacted school for a deep cleaning and disinfect the remaining 9 schools. Hoping to have the unaffected schools open as soon as possible, we called on the experience and professionalism of Clean Harbors. They had crews in our buildings the next day (Sunday). Their highly trained teams worked around the clock and we were cleared to open our doors that next Monday morning. Thank you, Clean Harbors.”

- John Parke, Safety and Security Administrator, Lake Oswego School District
