Hazardous Waste Disposal & Management Solutions

Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hazardous waste landfills have been perceived by the general public as a prospective threat to the safety of water supplies for many surrounding comunities. One of these threats involves the toxic contamination of drinking water. Hazardous waste landfills are the result of more than a century of handling various toxic chemicals at hazardous waste sites, ranging from gas stations whose potentially leaking underground storage tanks have contaminated water supplies, to sites that may have had stormwater runoff issues into neighboring streams, creeks or rivers.

The longer hazardous waste remains in the ground in a variety of forms, such as petroleum projects, volatile organic compounds and Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB’s), the greater the possibility that these toxins can potentially spread. This is because these chemicals have a long shelf life and can persist in the environment for decades. Hazardous waste sites can end up polluting rivers and drinking water supplies, as well as harming nearby wildlife.
