Stericycle remediation professionals have the technical capabilities and operational expertise to manage both small- and large-scale environmental projects. Our multidisciplinary technical and operations staff provides results-oriented systems and programs, incorporating both off-site removal and on-site treatment, as needed.
Our successful projects include every type of application of hazardous and non-hazardous waste treatment and disposal technologies and range in size from 30 cubic yards of residential oil-contaminated soil to over 100,000 cubic yards of PCB’s, hydrocarbons, debris, and metals contaminated soil.
Stericycle has installed groundwater treatment and extraction systems for public entities, major oil and petrochemical companies, private landowners, engineering companies and consulting firms. These systems remove a variety of organic and inorganic contaminants and typically employ one or more treatment strategies.
The best technology is utilized on each site by maximizing time and space constraints, nature and concentration of the contaminants present, cleanup standards, and soil permeability. We excel in providing excavation, piping, electrical and mechanical installation and site restoration services, as required to implement the specified remediation program.
Stericycle’s full range of landfill construction services includes the construction of new facilities ranging from temporary containment areas for contaminated soils to sophisticated operational landfill units for disposal of industrial wastes, including the installation of comprehensive methane and leachate collection systems. Capping systems are constructed to achieve secure isolation of waste materials from the environment.
Additionally, Stericycle performs thorough clean out of contaminated sediments and sludges from retention and settling ponds, aeration basins, leach fields and other impoundment systems. By employing appropriate filtering and dewatering methods, the volume of waste sent to off-site disposal facilities can be minimized.
Stericycle personnel have managed projects involving the removal of hundreds of underground and above ground storage tanks. In addition to conventional fuel tanks, Stericycle handles containment systems for solvents, acids, resins and pesticides. Projects can be managed on a turnkey basis or for specific areas of tank management.
Stericycle also has workers and supervisors trained to perform confined-space entry as needed. All necessary personal protective equipment, including supplied air and retrieval systems, can be provided to ensure a safe working environment for our personnel.
The Stericycle remediation/field services group has successfully completed numerous civil construction projects ranging from monitoring wellhead repair to construction of the lunar landing practice facility at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Stericycle is primarily involved with civil work with an environmental hazard element, and will partner with qualified construction, demolition and other trades as needed.
From the construction of slurry walls to provide groundwater control, to the installation of fencing and storm water management systems, to routine mowing and maintenance on landfill caps, Stericycle brings the full spectrum of experienced personnel, equipment and site-specific safety to every project.
Stericycle project managers are experienced in the implementation, development and construction of wetlands restoration systems. We have successfully assisted our clients in improving ecological design in both natural and constructed wetlands.
We work closely with clients to provide quality excavation, grading, substrate installation, contouring and planting services to meet wetlands mitigation and design plans. When completed, wetlands can provide improved water quality, aesthetic enhancement, and a habitat for fish and wildlife.
Stericycle is permitted by the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) as a hauler of oil and gas waste; additionally, we possess a Radioactive Materials handling license issued by the Texas Department of State Health Services . With this license, extensive experience and resources, we offer solutions to the oil and gas industry for NORM and NOW remediation and decontamination. Stericycle has full time Radiation Safety Officers on staff, with access to additional RSO’s on retainer. We have NORM-certified technicians available to respond to any size project, with all worker protection standards and confined space entry program. Our inventory of NORM surveying, excavation, cleaning, transportation and ancillary equipment is all owned, with little required to be leased.
