Disposal Services

Bulk Waste Management
TEC staff can be quite innovative in finding affordable means to dispose of your hazardous and non-hazardous waste...or turn it into renewable energy. The greater the quantity or volume, the more options you have! Let TEC quote your bulk waste management needs.
Chemical Oxidation
Chemical oxidation technologies destroy contaminants through powerful, controlled chemical reactions rather than by biological means. TEC has worked with many customers to use chemical oxidation as a means to treat hazardous waste streams. Ask TEC if chemical oxidation is best for you.
Compressed Gas Cylinder Removal and Disposal
TEC's experienced and professional team can manage the removal and disposal of compressed gas cylinders from your facilities. Also, TEC can identify, handle and properly dispose of unknown gas cylinders that other companies may not be able to accept. TEC's cylinder management program includes inspection, identification, sampling, recycling/disposal, and all appropriate documentation.
Explosive and Reactive Waste Management
TEC staff is adept at managing waste that is explosive or waste that can violently reactive with other substances. Whether your waste is in solid, sludge or liquid form, TEC has the expertise to handle your materials, obtaining timely processing of thermal treatment approvals, quotes, and transportation schedules.
Hazardous Landfill
Hazardous waste landfills are constructed to be secure repositories for materials, which present a serious hazard to human and environmental health. Each landfill is restricted by permit or law, as to the types of waste that they may handle. TEC has strong, ongoing relationships with a multitude of hazardous landfills across the U.S. Once your waste is profiled, TEC staff is quick to gain approvals from landfills for disposing of your wastes, along with handling all regulatory paperwork and transportation from your site to the landfill.
Incineration (Thermal Destruction)
Thermal technologies such as incineration and combustion can be an effective means of destroying hazardous wastes. TEC evaluates your waste streams to provide you with the most environmentally friendly and cost-effective options for handling this waste. TEC provides turnkey service, including waste analysis, regulatory paperwork, and transportation to an incineration facility.
PCB Management
TEC provides you with disposal services for all types of PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) related wastes including transformers, capacitors, ballasts and assorted liquids and solids. Depending on regulations and your preferences, PCB materials can be recycled, incinerated, treated or sent to landfill. TEC also provides field services to remove and transport your wastes. Call TEC for a quote and experience the TEC advantage firsthand.
Pharmaceutical Waste
TEC specializes in processing hospital's RCRA hazardous chemical waste; not your "red-bag" waste. Common pharmaceuticals such as epinephrine (adrenaline), nicotine, warfarin (Coumadin), and a number of chemotherapeutic agents are federally regulated as hazardous waste and must be managed differently than other solid waste. Let TEC's experts be of service and keep you in compliance with the EPA.
Radioactive Waste (Low-level)
Low-level radioactive waste often consists of used protective clothing; which is only slightly contaminated but still dangerous in case of radioactive contamination of a human body through ingestion, inhalation, absorption, or injection. TEC can properly handle such waste.
Secure (Sanitary) Landfills
Today's modern, secure landfills have physical barriers such as liners, leachiate collection systems, and procedures to protect the public from exposure to disposed wastes. The nature of your waste determines if it can be accepted by secure landfills, which are less expensive than hazardous landfills. This is where TEC can be of service. By characterizing your waste streams and by providing treatment, recycling, disposal and transportation options, TEC staff can most likely save you money over your current program.
Stabilization
Stabilization refers to those techniques that reduce the hazard potential of a waste by converting the contaminants into their least soluble, mobile, or toxic form. When stabilization is employed, the disposal and handling costs or your waste can be significantly reduced. TEC is an expert in stabilization and would like the opportunity to help you save money.
Universal Wastes
Universal wastes, such as batteries, fluorescent tubes, and some electronic devices, are classified as hazardous wastes because they contain mercury, lead, cadmium, copper and other substances hazardous to human and environmental health. IN most cases these wastes cannot be discarded in solid waste landfills. This is where TEC can step in and identify your recycling and disposal options. TEC has long-term working relationships with facilities that these unique wastes are either recycled or legally and properly disposed. Think of TEC as your universal waste experts.
Waste Water Treatment
The objective is to remove harmful pollutants from industrial liquid waste so that it safely returns to the environment. TEC maintains strong, working relationships with many wastewater treatment plants so that your objective can be accomplished as cost-effectively as possible. TEC has its own trucks and tank trailers ready and available to handle your wastes without delay. Let TEC craft a smart solution for you.
waste to energy


Waste to Energy Solutions

TEC is the expert in turning waste into energy and TEC makes these options know to customers, whenever the characterization of the waste streams is ideal for conversion. TEC has ties to a number of waste-to-energy facilities that accept a variety of wastes, which can be burned in high-temperature incinerators to produce electricity. Please contact TEC if you are interested in learning about your waste-to-energy options.

Recycle

Fuel Blending

Certain hazardous wastes can be recycled by blending them into fuel. Done correctly, this creates a product that meets environmental regulations and ultimately reduces fossil-fuel consumption. TEC has the technical expertise and resources to help you make a positive impact on the environment. Call TEC to learn how your needs can be met.

LAB PACK SERVICES
lab packs

Tonawanda Tank offers economical and environmentally sound disposal for laboratory and miscellaneous small package chemical waste. Our experienced staff will identify, segregate, and catalog your unwanted chemicals to design a disposal program. Upon completion of the design, we will collect, package, and label your materials to comply with all state and federal regulations. Our specifically trained professionals will complete all shipping manifests and land disposal restriction forms. Tonawanda Tank Transport Service Inc. handles the entire disposal process including transportation allowing your company or laboratory to continue operations without interruption. Safety and security is our concern. Your wastes are incinerated or treated; none are directly land-filled.

Does your Lab Pack Service send an expert to your site?

TEC sends an expert...a CHEMIST...to process each and every lab pack, because there are usually unexpected wastes to profile. TEC can efficiently inventory, collect, identify, segregate, consolidate, catalog, package, label, transport and dispose of all your miscellaneous chemical wastes. TEC will handle your small containers of hazardous wastes -- such as jars, bottles and jugs up to 5 gallons in size -- and pack them in 55 gallon drums for storage, transportation and disposal. This service can be provided as a one-time cleanout, on an "as needed" basis, or on a set schedule during the year.

WHAT IS A LAB PACK?
mystery waste


A lab pack is a collection of similar and compatible types of waste chemicals (in small volume containers, less than 5 gallon in size) that are placed in one larger container (55 gallon or less) for storage, transportation and disposal. Such activity is considered a lab pack.

ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL RULES FOR LAB PACKS?

Yes, If you combine your waste in containers, you must comply with the applicable requirements for waste consolidation. Lab packs have special requirements with regard to packaging prior to transportation and disposal. For packaging prior to disposal, you must use DOT approved non-leaking "inside containers" that are compatible with the waste being packaged. These inside containers must be over-packed ie lab packed in compatible "outer-containers" that is also compatible. The inside containers must be surrounded by enough compatible sorbent material to safely absorb all the contents in the container should a container rupture. A drum is considered lab-packed or full when it is packed with inside containers and sufficient sorbent material, sealed and completely categorized by an accurate inventory of the containers contents. In addition, incompatible hazardous waste can not be placed in the same outside container. As an example: reactive hazardous waste, such as cyanide or sulfide-bearing wastes, must not be packaged with acidic wastes.
