FAQ

Disposal

  1.  What do you dispose of?

    Generally speaking, we dispose of RCRA Hazardous, TSCA Hazardous, and industrial wastes.  We also get involved in explosives, radioactives (including NORM and TENORM), and biologically hazardous wastes.

  2.  Do you recycle?

    Yes!  We recycle universal wastes (batteries, fluorescent and mercury lamps, and electronic waste, etc.).  We also recycle fuels blending materials (greases, oils, and solvents).  We also can recycle / regenerate catalysts.

  3.  Where do you dispose of the waste?

    The disposal sites we use are dependent upon location, type of waste, pricing, and having a clean background audit.  MSES chooses to use larger, reputable firms that are heavily insured. For more information, please click on the Contact Us tab.

  4.  What do I have to do to have MSES come remove my waste?

    We will gather some very basic information about your company or site and some specific information about the type of waste you have.  A profile form is the start of the acceptance process.  We can assist you in filling out profiles, gathering samples, and finding any information that may be necessary to properly characterize and remove your waste.  MSES will take care of your needs turnkey from identification to labeling to shipping and disposal.

Cost

  1.  How much does it cost for you to remove our waste?

    Pricing is based upon 4 criteria:

    1. Type of waste
    2. Disposal / treatment required
    3. Location
    4. Volume of waste

    Provide us with the necessary information, and we can quote you pricing for disposal and transportation.

  2.  How much does it cost for you to identify our waste?

    In many cases, identification costs you nothing.  Occasionally, lab analytical or haz-cat services are required.  Lab analytical will be quoted on a case by case basis.  Haz-cat services generally cost $95 per hour, per technician, including travel time.  Haz-cat services can sometimes greatly reduce costs by eliminating unnecessary lab sampling and analytical.
