And we can move high volumes with integrated road and rail transport to our own secure facility for rapid, yet always thorough and safe, disposal. Even our transportation process, with emphasis on rail haulage wherever feasible, is environmentally conscious as well as fully DOT compliant.
The double challenge of bulk hazardous waste handling is secure transportation and safe, one-time-only disposal. We thrive on meeting this challenge and exceeding our customers’ every expectation along the way. Our transportation capability comes into focus when you run the numbers: 650 open-top intermodal containers; 200 hard-top 20 ft. intermodal containers; multiple intermodal flatcar configurations with a gross weight capacity up to 424,000 lbs; 200 registered truck power units and 214 of our own dedicated drivers. This combined road and rail capability gives Heritage the capacity to tackle the toughest, high-volume waste transportation tasks, with DOT compliance assured for every yard of every journey.
Your hazardous waste’s safe and compliant journey ends at our secure disposal facility. We have approximately 14M cubic yards of permitted landfill capacity available today. We can process high volumes of material for daily disposal at our permitted RCRA landfill at Roachdale, IN. And we accept the following waste categories: Sediments from Dredging; Waste Treatment Residues; Heavy Metal Contaminated Wastes; Remediation Soils; CAMU Eligible Wastes; PCB Remediation Wastes; Demolition Debris; LDR Compliant Wastes. Every load, every time, the guaranteed outcome is cost-effective, compliant waste management.
There will always be some waste categories and circumstances where the highest quality landfill disposal is a necessary option. If you are facing a bulk hazardous waste challenge right now, you need a disposal expert who can also be your partner, every step of the way from specifying the solution, through paperwork, to safe transportation and secure disposal. Heritage has the practical answers, from an extensive logistics network to a permitted RCRA landfill that is geologically isolated. We’re into our fifth decade of safe, secure, and long-term hazardous waste disposal.
Once these options have been exhausted, we turn to our landfill.
This isn't your typical municipal solid waste landfill - our Commercial Part B Permitted Hazardous Waste Landfill was the first of it's kind in the US, certified in 1984. In addition to being geographically isolated, its design ensures a secure, fully compliant, and long-term disposal environment. Whether your wastestream is soil or other material from a remediation project, or any volume of hazardous or non-hazardous waste, Heritage provides a total solution, complete with logistics and planning options for secure disposal in an RCRA Subtitle-C landfill. We even safely dispose of waste ash and filter cake from our own treatment facilities. You can trust us to dispose of your waste properly.
That’s why every aspect of the Heritage landfill disposal service is designed for our customers’ peace of mind, as well as for the good of our environment. From the moment we engage with your bulk disposal challenge, you can count on our experts for the very best advice, delivered right across a robust service chain, from pre-collection to final disposal.
We know that our customers are responsible organizations and that they have a responsibility for any hazardous waste they send to landfill. And we know that not every TSD is a safe, long-term bet. Some of them do go out of business. That’s why, at Heritage, we’re proud of the fact that we offer a truly secure, long-term disposal facility with a very, very long time horizon. The benefit to our customers is that, in the complex context of RCRA, DOT, and CERCLA, they can be certain of lasting compliance.
