Trans-Environmental Services provides a variety of recycling and disposal options for virtually all types of regulated and hazardous waste. Below is a selection from the many different items that we are able to recycle.
Technology and innovation have been increasing at an astounding rate over the last several decades, creating a surplus of obsolete electronic devices. Let TES assist you in disposing of your E-waste, and we’ll handle everything from old servers and computers, to CRTs, printers, televisions, phone systems, appliances and all the wires and cables that accumulate over time. We’ll help keep you in compliance, and remove the headache of handling these wastes, allowing you to concentrate on what matters most to your business.
Batteries of all sizes are considered Universal Waste by the federal government, with laws and guidelines in place for the proper management of this waste stream. TES takes an environmentally-sound approach to battery recycling that helps your organization reduce liability and administrative costs. TES will work with you and your team to assess and thoroughly understand the recycling requirements based on the types and quantities of batteries at your site. We’ll help establish a collection and recycling program to recycle your batteries and maintain compliance. Our training personnel can educate your staff on safe packaging and disposal, providing guidelines to ensure that battery shipments are delivered safely.
Universal Waste Recycling
Along with battery recycling, TES manages a variety of other universal waste streams for our customers, including bulbs and lamps, mercury containing devices, and some pesticides. Of these waste streams, bulbs and lamps represent the greatest volume of waste generated by our customers. We can set up a recycling program for your firm, set up scheduled pickups and make the management of this waste simple and trouble free.
Site Remediation and Hazardous Waste Recycling Alternatives
We are proud of our commitment to the environment which begins with a conscious effort to find new uses for those products classified as “liquid and solid wastes”. We work diligently with our customers and laboratories to develop innovative methods for recycling and reusing discarded waste materials. In addition, we are proud of our complete reuse and remediation capabilities. Some examples of remediation waste recycling include water treatment options, qualified soil used as alternative daily cover at landfills, pulling out metal and other recyclable debris from demolition operations, and recycling oil from scrap machinery and pipelines. We are unique among our peers in our ability to recycle a large portion of our waste, saving our customers money and long term liability.
Tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste, due to the large volume produced and their durability. It is estimated that 259 million tires are discarded annually (for years in the 1980s and 1990s). The same characteristics that make waste tires problematic, their cheap availability, bulk, and resilience, also make them attractive targets for recycling. Nonetheless more than half of used tires are simply burned for their fuel value. Approximately, one tire is discarded per person per year. We can assist in establishing a recycling program at your business, provide roll off containers for storage and transport, and train your staff on procedures for an effective tire recycling program.
Oily Water Treatment/Recycling
We are all reminded of the value of oil and water every time we fuel our vehicles or pay our water bill. When mixed together they become an unwanted waste stream but separate them, and they can be re-refined, cleaned, filtered and turned back into two valuable resources. Each drum of waste we process eliminates a drum of customer waste at a landfill and reduces their long term liability for that waste. The concept of recycling every available resource from waste is the core value at TES. Our customers share this value and are reaping the savings from the wise management of their oil/water mixtures with our assistance.
Waste Oil Recycling
One of the best qualities of motor oil is that it never wears out. Recycling your used motor oil requires far less effort than pumping and refining crude oil. Cleaning and recycling used motor oil can benefit you financially too, with reimbursements for your good quality oil when you take it to a certified recycling center. When TES collects your used oil for recycling, you are protecting the environment, conserving a valuable resource, and getting paid for it. That’s a winning combination!
Hazardous Waste Disposal
Trans-Environmental Services (TES) provides a wide range of recycling, treatment and disposal options for all hazardous and regulated waste streams. Our customer-focused team can provide regulatory guidance and best practices for the management of your hazardous waste. We handle both hazardous and non-hazardous waste liquids, solids, and sludges and also provide lab pack service to consolidate miscellaneous hazardous waste streams for the most cost-effective disposal option. We utilize a network of EPA approved and permitted TSDFs so you have peace of mind knowing your waste was properly recycled or disposed of in accordance with all applicable regulations.
