Hazardous waste transportation and disposal.

Hazardous waste emergency response


Emergency spill response is a vital responsibility for fuel spills, chemical spills, DOT hazardous materials spills (such as mercury and explosives) and EPA hazardous waste spills. Fast, professional response is also critical to high-pressure tasks such as identification of unknown substances, spill containment, proper waste handling and clean-up. In the aftermath of a natural disaster, waste and environmental concerns are only a part of a larger, complicated picture.


Hazardous waste audits and consultation


Environmental compliance is no simple matter, regardless of how much waste a facility may generate. As requirements evolve and regulatory bodies increase their focus on enforcement, adhering to all applicable regulations can seem like a blur of identification numbers, permit applications and mandatory reports. Despite this complexity, any business that fails to manage compliance and requirements can be exposed to fines and violations that have very real implications for brand perception and financial stability. Asante Waste Management provides hazardous waste reporting and consulting expertise to help customers manage the complicated demands of complete compliance. The team leverages on the combination of experience & innovation to help customers—from manufacturers to healthcare providers, retailers and others— comply with National and Environmental regulations.


Hazardous waste audits.


Waste categorization can be a challenging process, particularly for facilities that generate multiple waste streams. Before an organization can satisfy applicable waste regulations, they must first document all waste generated by their facilities and classify them according to type (hazardous, non-hazardous, universal, infectious, recyclable, etc.). Asante Waste Management customers benefit from professional waste audits designed to identify and document waste streams and applicable waste management regulations.
Asante Waste Management fully manages this process by combining insights from years of hazardous
waste experience with support from state-of-the-art tools. Pharmaceutical wastes, for example, are
characterized using our proprietary database of over 450,000 National Drug Codes (NDCs). All collected
data is verified against multiple sources and constantly updated to maintain compliance with evolving
regulations. Asante Waste Management serves as a single source for the complex data management
that every business needs in order to remain compliant.
