The Company serves over 60,000 customers, including a majority of the Fortune 500 companies, thousands of smaller private entities and numerous federal, state, provincial and local governmental agencies. Within Clean Harbors Environmental Services, the Company offers Technical Services and Field Services. Technical Services provide a broad range of hazardous material management and disposal services including the collection, packaging, transportation, recycling, treatment and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Field Services provide a wide variety of environmental cleanup services and industrial maintenance on customer sites or other locations on a scheduled or emergency response basis. Headquartered in Norwell, Massachusetts, Clean Harbors has more than 200 locations, including over 50 waste management facilities, throughout North America in 37 U.S. states, seven Canadian provinces, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Product Overview Clean Harbors offers the simplest and most compliant pharmaceutical waste program available - the One Container Program. Frontline clinicians at hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities simply put both hazardous and nonhazardous pharmaceutical wastes in the same black container.* This substantially reduces noncompliance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) waste disposal rules that can result from waste segregation disposal systems. The Clean Harbors One Container Program is a comprehensive collection system that is customized for each organization. Clean Harbors staff, of hazardous waste experts, work with healthcare facilities to design waste management systems that improve safety, compliance, and environmental impact. They will also develop schedules and procedures for the collection, transportation, management, documentation, and destruction of each unique waste profile. In addition to the reduction in liability, the One Container Program “blended” disposal cost is cost competitive and often cost neutral because Clean Harbors, as the largest hazardous waste incineration company in North America, owns and operates every step of the hazardous waste disposal process. Testimonial “Clean Harbors brings a lot of value to the relationship. I know that I can count on them to efficiently handle the collection and disposal responsibilities. I also know that Mellissa (Clean Harbors Project Manager) is always there to do the special projects that keep us moving forward in reducing our waste and finding new efficiencies.” — Crystal Saric, Coordinator of Waste Services and Waste Reduction, Fairview Health Service, Minneapolis, MN *There are a few items that must be collected separately due to DOT regulations.
