At EcoSouth Services, we work hard to ensure the safe and ethical disposal of waste that is collected.
According to EPA estimates, the United States industrial sector generates more than 7.5 billion tons of industrial solid waste annually. While a small portion of this waste is classified under the category of “special waste”, the bulk of industrial solid waste is classified as non-hazardous industrial waste and consists of materials such as iron, steel, stone, pulp, and paper. In addition to being a byproduct of industrial manufacturing & mining, non-hazardous industrial waste can also generated from large scale construction and demolition projects.
Excess accumulation of non-hazardous industrial wastes can become a concern if there is not a waste management company or landfill facility capable of properly handling and disposing of non-hazardous industrial waste, especially in regions of the U.S. where industrial manufacturing facilities are more common and areas experiencing rapid commercial and industrial growth.
