Lima, Ohio (Vocus/PRWEB) February 21, 2011
Allied Environmental Services, Inc. (Allied) recently announced that it is expanding its environmental consulting and contracting services to include management and recycling of hazardous materials and universal waste products. Allied has been providing professional waste management, emergency spill response, industrial maintenance, environmental site assessment, and asbestos abatement services for over 23 years. The Lima, Ohio-based company is now expanding its capabilities to include collection, transport, and recycling of hazardous materials, laboratory chemicals, spent photographic and x-ray developing solutions, radioactive materials, and universal wastes.
To help develop the new services, Allied hired senior chemist and hazardous waste specialist Noah McManus. Mr. McManus has over 15 years experience managing hazardous materials and is an expert in waste characterization. “I’m very excited to be spearheading Allied’s expanded services. Allied is an established and respected environmental firm with a very large client base, and the framework for increasing waste management services was already in place”, stated McManus. “With our expanded services, we can now provide complete turn-key waste management. This translates to a significant cost savings for our clients”, added McManus.
Allied’s focus is on waste minimization and recycling. By consolidating and neutralizing waste streams, the quantity of hazardous waste generated can be reduced considerably. In many cases, these minimization measures allow a client to change RCRA status from a large quantity generator (LQG) to a conditionally-exempt small quantity generator (CESQG), which reduces RCRA filing requirements and also reduces liability. “We’re trying to show our clients the value, both in cost savings and decreased liability, that waste minimization can provide”, stated McManus. “Recycling is another means of minimization. Often, it is cheaper to recycle than to dispose of a material as a waste; AND you keep that material out of a landfill, which is environmentally responsible”, he added.
Allied is currently assisting clients with disposal and/or recycling of RCRA hazardous wastes, PCBs, elemental mercury and mercury-containing devices, radioactives, shock-sensitive materials, unused or obsolete lab chemicals in schools and hospitals, and “universal wastes”. Universal waste typically includes items such as spent light bulbs, mercury switches, and batteries; and electronic equipment such as computers, printers and monitors ““ all of which can be efficiently recycled.
