High-Hazard Chemicals Management

In addition to reactive chemicals, our trained personnel can manage field characterization of unknown chemicals and compressed gas cylinders and provide turnkey management of radioactive materials.

The challenge as we see it

High-hazard chemicals can be harmful to people and the environment without proper disposal. Cost-effective and timely service is necessary in situations where a reactive chemical requires stabilization.

Our differentiated value

Our local, reactive technicians are specially trained and qualified to manage all types of high-hazard chemicals and can quickly and conveniently assess your chemical inventory, identify the best handling option, and provide a safe, cost effective solution. We have developed procedures for handling each category of chemicals — including those that are a health hazard, flammable and/or reactive. Specialized equipment, planning and training are required to work with all of these materials.

  • Corrosive
  • Reactive
  • Flammable
  • Carcinogen
  • Oxidizer
  • Explosive
  • Poison
  • Temperature sensitive
