Tacoma Hazardous Waste Disposal Services
Tacoma is home of the largest port in the State of Washington. The Port of Tacoma is one of the main import and export routes in Washington, which in turn make it a key driver of the state’s economy. Industries like the Railroad, Weyerhaeuser, Oil and Refining operations have shaped Tacoma’s landscape since 1875. Today, nearly 39,000 barrels of petroleum are being refined daily making it one of the busiest refining operations in the nation. In the past these industries, to no fault of their own, have left behind numerous hazardous wastes disposal issues. Altogether, this has contributed to a distinctive odor in the industrial tide flats. Late in the 1990s it was reported that many companies implemented changes that reduced their total sulfur emissions by 90%. Today the resulting effects are not only good for the environment but also for the local communities.
Since WasteXpress was founded in 1989 in Portland, Oregon. We have continued to grow and expand our horizons in the waste disposal industry. From Portland, WasteXpress Environmental expanded into Seattle, Washington and began to service Seattle and the greater Puget Sound area with its waste disposal needs. As the greater Seattle metro area continues to grow, our company continues to grow. With that, WasteXpress has recently opened an office in Tacoma, Washington so we can better service the needs of our growing client base there. Tacoma, like Seattle, is a port city meaning much of the cities industry and economy is surrounded around the waterways via the imports and exports that are brought in and shipped out through these waterways daily. For years, Wastexpress Environmental has worked with companies ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to small mom and pop businesses to everyone in between. WasteXpress takes pride in continually finding routes to not only dispose of waste streams properly, but also to save our clients’ money while they are disposing of their dangerous wastes.
