Safe Water Treatment Could Be Another Jobs Generator Thanks to Utica
Starting business in 1980, Clean Harbors has become one the leading providers of energy, environmental and industrial services and the largest hazardous waste disposal company in North America. We provide services to many Fortune 500 companies, thousands of smaller entities and numerous federal, state and local government agencies. Headquartered in Norwell, Massachusetts — Clean Harbors has more than 190 locations, including over 50 waste disposal facilities throughout North America in 36 U.S. States, 7 Canadian Provinces, Mexico and Puerto Rico. The company also operates international locations in Bulgaria, China, Singapore, Sweden, Thailand and the U.K. employing more than 8,000 people.
In Ohio we have a waste water treatment plant in greater Cleveland, a transfer station in Akron, a waste disposal site in greater Cincinnati and a solvent recovery facility in greater Columbus.
We also purchased recent acquisitions to build our presence in the Utica and Marcellus Shales, including our Peak Energy Surface Rental Division located in Williamsport, Pa., our Exploration-Seismic Survey and Hole Shot Drilling Division in South Williamsport, Pa. and Conneaut Lake, Pa., and our Field Services, Exploration-Land Clearing & Mulching Divisions located in Jersey Shore, Pa. and Conneaut Lake, Pa. All of these services are branching out into Ohio to assist the 500 plus employees that have been working at our environmental divisions for nearly 30 years.
As director of contractor-client relations, it is my position to advocate “continuous improvement” as part of Clean Harbors with the realization that to remain competitive in today’s global economy we all must constantly strive to improve every aspect of our working relationships.
We at Clean Harbors believe if utilized properly, the economic impacts of shale gas and contracting services in and around the oil and gas industry, such as the enhancement of our communities, and large amounts of income and capital available to our businesses, could be felt for decades to come. We wish to learn and earn with the state of Ohio, its residents, clients and subcontractors from such a positive environment.
