EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio – Heritage Thermal Services provides an important service to the environment by safely destroying wastes that are produced from U. S. manufacturers of commonly used products such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, health and beauty aids, housing components, energy sources and transportation. As our employees and East Liverpool residents are aware, the safety, health and welfare of our community are and always will be the top priorities at our facility. Our highly trained environmental and engineering professionals work diligently to ensure that priority is met.
Thursday’s Columbus Dispatch article about claims issued by the U.S. EPA confuses infrequent and brief failures with mechanical operation standards with violations of air emissions standards of certain toxic pollutants. The article incorrectly suggests that plant operations present health risks to our community.
We are a leader in demonstrating compliance with complex new rules for commercial hazardous waste incinerators in the United States. We cooperated fully with the U.S. EPA and the Ohio EPA in this process. Indeed, our professionals will be meeting with U.S. EPA officials in Chicago next month to ensure that we are in agreement with the agencies that regulate us regarding procedures to comply with these protective new rules.
Our commitment to our employees and the East Liverpool community is to work as hard as we can every day to protect the health, welfare, and safety of our workforce and the community.We are completely confident that our highly engineered, rigorously monitored facility is not adversely affecting the health and welfare of those we care about most.
