RCRA Solvents, Acids, & Caustics

RCRA Solvents, Acids, & Caustics

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is a public law that creates the structure for the proper management of hazardous liquid and solid waste. The law gives the Environmental Protection Agency the ability to manage hazardous waste from generation to disposal. HTS Environmental Services is a trusted resource for safe RCRA hazardous waste disposal and transportation.

Solvent Waste Disposal

Organic solvents are frequently some of the most hazardous chemicals in the workplace. Examples of commonly encountered solvents include isopropyl alcohol, ethyl acetate, or acetone, all of which are highly flammable.

Other solvents, such as dichloromethane and carbon tetrachloride, are not flammable. However, this does not make them any less dangerous, as they may produce toxic gases. HTS Environmental offers solvent disposal service to businesses in a broad range of industries.

Acid Waste Disposal

Acids are corrosive chemicals that may cause serious physical damage if improperly handled. Strong acids such as hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, etc. are highly corrosive and will even cause stainless steel to deteriorate.

HTS offers chemical disposal services for the removal of commonly used chemicals such as sulfuric, nitric, hydrochloric, acid disposal, and more.

Caustic Waste Disposal

Caustic waste can be defined as strong bases, also known as alkali, that have become spent and is no longer useful. Typically these solutions include potassium or sodium hydroxide, and other contaminants.

With a broad fleet of chemically compatible service vehicles, tractor-trailers, and vacuum tankers, HTS is equipped to handle spent caustics in a cost-efficient and environmentally responsible way.
