Introducing Clean Harbors D3 Clean Program

 

The right program, the right price, and the tools you need to send the right message.

What is D3 Clean?

Disinfection
Recurring disinfection services performed by our skilled professionals with over 40 years of experience in emergency response and infectious disease management.

Decontamination
In the event there is a plausible, possible or known presence of the virus, a complete decontamination service will be performed by HAZWOPER-trained professionals using EPA-approved SARS-CoV-2 solutions that eradicate the contamination. The entire focus is on killing the virus, utilizing everything from foggers to misting equipment, while wearing Level C PPE with total body protection and full-face respirators.

Disposal
We offer complete removal of contamination where remaining waste is safely managed and legally transported to one of our incinerators, where it is destroyed down to the molecular level. Whatever the emergency, you can be sure that our response personnel will execute the clean-up and disposal of your waste in strict accordance with the most current CDC, EPA and DOT regulations.

Testimonials

“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
