Emergency Haz Waste Response
At North Texas Spill Response, we take hazardous waste response seriously. We use the latest commercial grade equipment EPA-approved cleaning agents and adhere to OSHA standards to quickly respond and treat, store, or dispose of any hazardous material release that you may have. Once you alert us that there are hazardous materials that could potentially negatively impact human health and the environment, we quickly dispatch our pre-loaded fleet into action. Once we arrive at the spill locations, our OHSA trained HAZWOPER professionals will take these steps to ensure every surface that is negatively impacted by the haz waste will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
- We start by conducting a thorough evaluation of what exactly has been negatively impacted by the fuel spill.
- Once we’ve determined what needs attention, staying within regulatory requirements, we immediately remediate the affected areas to remove the hazardous materials.
- If there is any debris that was damaged by the incident or solid waste remaining, we will remove it.
- The next step is decontaminating, sanitizing, and cleaning machinery and other valuables that may be salvageable.
- If necessary, we will then deodorize the affected areas using HEPA air scrubbers.
- Lastly, we provide the necessary documentation of our efforts and the remediation process to you so that you remain compliant with Federal, State, and Local regulations.

Environmental Remediation Of A Hazardous Materials Release
Thorough Analysis of The Contaminated Area
Many times we are called because the need to remediate a hazardous material release is an emergency. And, of course, we are always available to help with the waste treatment of an oil spill and disposal of contaminated materials during an emergency, call anytime. There are other times when the need for hazardous material release remediation is not an emergency. Say for example you own a piece of property that was once a gas station and gas and diesel has leached into the ground, or a gun range that’s loaded full of lead bullets. In these instances, we will need to properly analyze the site to first learn exactly what type of pollution it has. Besides determining the type of pollution that’s occurred, we’ll need to know the size and extent of the contaminated area. To get to the bottom of our questions concerning the contamination of your site, we’ll need to do conduct water sampling, soil sampling, and complete a thorough chemical analysis of what we’ve sampled.
Ex-situ remediation consists of removing the contaminated soil and groundwater and then trucking it to an appropriate treatment facility. Such treatments can take the form of tilling for shallow soils, which consists of mechanical agitation below the surface and then blending in amendments that promote proper treatment.
In-Situ remediation methods consist of treating the contaminated soil and groundwater at the site where the hazardous material release occurred. There are a number of in-situ remediation methods including chemical oxidation, trap and treat, enhanced bioremediation, chemical reduction, surfactants, and permeable reactive barriers.
While both methods are effective and removing hazardous material from an area, the benefits of In-situ remediation outweigh those of Ex-situ remediation. Besides the fact that In-situ cleanup is up to 75% less expensive than Ex-situ, it’s also less time-consuming, takes up less space, and is considerably less disruptive to the operation of the site.
Gas Spill Cleanup After A Crash
After a motor vehicle accident, many times a gas spill occurs, and it’s at the time of the car crash that cleanup must take place. Because there are dangerous flammable fumes and a real threat to people and the environment, you need a team of professionals who not only understand the appropriate steps to take to remediate the spill but also know how to work well with other first responders on the scene. North Texas Spill Response has worked with law enforcement and other first responders for years and has the knowledge, expertise, and equipment to clean up any gas spill.
Our crew and equipment are available 24 hours of every day to clean up fuel, oil, or any other hydrocarbon release. Once we receive your call for emergency response, our team will spring into action. Once on-site, we’ll assess the spill and determine a plan of action for mitigating your loss and remediating the spill in as little time as possible. If we determine that there’s a chance that some of the hydrocarbon liquids may find their way into the storm drains and then into a nearby body of water, we will quickly employ various tools to stop the spread of the contamination.
North Texas Spill Response is happy to provide free on-site consultation services before you have a spill. So, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about the services we provide. Remember, being prepared for a spill is the best way to avoid having a spill in the first place.
