Non-Hazardous Waste

Environmental Services | Non-Hazardous Waste

Waste management has been at the core of MAX’s business for more than 55 years. MAX’s Southwestern Pennsylvania operations include treatment storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs), a residual waste landfill and active beneficial use project sites that are home to the treatment, re-use, reclamation or ultimate disposal of thousands of tons of waste materials each year. Our operations and facilities maintain an excellent record of compliance, and our seasoned staff has a long history of safe, reliable and responsive service.

Among our non-hazardous waste services:

Oil and Gas Industry

Drill cuttings and liquid waste collection, stabilization, transportation and disposal

Soils and Solids Remediation

MAX is a leader of contaminated soil remediation, including in-site treatment, excavation, transportation and off-site treatment and disposal. Many non-hazardous soils and solids are eligible for beneficial use at our Bulger facility.

Solidification and Stabilization

MAX uses our Solid Waste Stabilization and Solidification (SWSS) system to treat high volumes of soils, sludges and debris delivered in bulk or container to our Yukon facility. We are permitted to also solidify oil and gas waste on our Yukon landfill for quick processing and disposal. Yukon is also home to production of our proprietary solidification reagents available for purchase in bulk bags or roll off boxes. MAX’s staff is highly experienced in waste solidification and stabilization, and is available to perform these services on your project site as well as at our facility.

Beneficial Use

MAX’s beneficial use projects at our Bulger site accept a broad range of soils and residual waste for use as on-site landfill construction fill. Contaminated soil, foundry sands, slags, drill cuttings and sludges are among the waste materials that can be accepted for beneficial use.

Residual Waste Disposal

MAX’s commercial landfill in Yukon meets RCRA Subtitle D standards and is permitted to accept a wide range of non-hazardous wastes, including oil and gas drilling wastes, soils, slag, brick, wastewater treatment sludges, and treated wastes.

Materials Crushing, Sorting and Screening

MAX’s Containment and Processing Building (CAPB) at our Yukon plant processes slags, kiln brick and similar materials to meet specifications for proper treatment and disposal, as well as to segregate reclaimable materials. Our staff is experienced in operating crushing and screening equipment on project sites as well as at our facility.
