Providing Comprehensive Environmental Services for North America
Clean Harbors is committed to conserving natural resources and protecting the environment by providing viable alternatives to disposal. Our Recycling Services offer a variety of recycling, reuse and reclamation options for hazardous and non-hazardous materials including solvents, chemicals and oil, light bulbs, transformers and other electrical equipment.
Our recycling and reuse program finds beneficial uses for manufacturing by-products, and we recycle oil, antifreeze and other automotive products. We blend high BTU liquids, solids and semi-solids for use as supplemental fuel in the manufacture of cement.
Recycling used oil products provides a cost-effective advantage over disposal (fuel blending) or incineration. Using Clean Harbors and Safety-Kleen also means confidence in conserving natural resources. Used oil, oil filters, antifreeze, oil water mixtures and used absorbents are recycled. learn more »
As the largest re-refiner of used oil, every year Clean Harbors' Safety-Kleen subsidiary returns more than 135 million gallons of used oil to the marketplace as clean, pure motor oil and associated by-products. Their state-of-the-art processes allow us to fully realize oil’s amazing capacity to be recycled and reused indefinitely with no loss of quality. learn more at Safety-Kleen.com »
Clean Harbors Recycling Services offer a full range of solvent recycling options from traditional recycling to tolling, or a combination of the two. Recovered products, which are not returned to customers, are available for sale. learn more »
Obsolete or nonfunctioning electronic equipment can be recycled. With Clean Harbors’ unique processes, equipment is de-manufactured and the materials are recycled. Materials such as light bulbs, computers, small home appliances, and utility company transformers are processed without endangering municipal landfills while gaining the opportunity for the recycling of component materials.
As a by-product of our incineration operation in El Dorado Arkansas, Clean Harbors operates a resource recovery system that produces a clean calcium chloride solution, which is a beneficial and marketable product used in exploration and production of crude oil by the upstream sector of the oil industry. We also use byproduct waste, called “comparable fuels”, which are used as a substitute for purchased fuel in the operation of our Deer Park, Texas incineration facility. This usage reduces our reliance on burning fossil fuel to operate our incineration kilns.
