Environmental management

Hazardous waste management for public waste management services

Some waste sent to garbage dumps and landfills needs to be redirected to a treatment plant for hazardous waste. Ecocentres receive contaminated wood chips, asphalt shingles, plastics and more. Waste that is too harmful to the environment needs to be neutralized before is can be buried.

Water treatment plants also produce industrial waste during the treatment process. The sludge generated by the water purification process needs to be treated because is contains the contamination left after the water is filtered.

Our solution for impacted soil

RSI Environmental is able to treat a wide range of contaminated waste. In our treatment process for hazardous waste, we treat the hydrocarbons that may be contained in the waste and use that energy to supply our plant and reduce our GHG emissions.

We also receive residue from municipal water treatment plants and other industrial businesses. Our unique process, allows us to treat wastewater sludge and polluted soil to recycle itand make resuable, fertile soil.

In cases of accidental spills, we are able to respond quickly, no matter the season. Our large storage capacity provides us with a lot of flexibility for hazardous waste treatment and impacted soil.
