Clean Harbors Inc. Message Board

    my experience tweeking, commissioning, building and rebuilding numerous facilities of significant size over the past few decades has been different from the scale you may be used to.

    The day to day management of stuff usually splits between various haulers. Liquid chemical wastes and contained waste go to someone like Clean Harbors. Dumpster debris goes elsewhere and is often segregated aswell. Huge facilites would pretreat/treat liquid effluent before discharge.

    I need coffee.

    Very optimistic here, even with the relaxed regulatory environment. Oddly enough I think the production of hazardous waste may increase if the facilites are allowed to operate more openly, with less capital committed to keep the systems tight and in control.

    Operating budgets vs. capital projects are seen in very short time frames lately. Expectations for quick paybacks keep money away from the waste treatment.

    What the new president should do is to approve capital expendature tax credits which would make these facilities operate better thereby eliminating waste products through better efficiencies.

    Money spent turns the wheel, makes the world go round. Engineering/materials/builders/fabricators of equipment/salesmen/sandwich makers/bartenders/work boot salesmen/barbers/planes/trains/automobiles... all get a piece.

    It has been a while since doing this sort of work, but a while ago, the env' capital was not the same as process. No one liked to spend money because they had to fit an end of pipe system to scrub emissions.
