Site Clean Up
A fire ignited at a tire recycling facility in Maricopa, AZ. Even after the Fire Department had put out the blaze, there was still risk of the tire piles reigniting because of the trapped heat at the bottom of the 15-feet tall rubber piles. ERI was contracted to break down the tire piles while saturating each pile with water before placing into roll-off bins for disposal. Nearly 21,000 tons was removed from the site in 940 truckloads.
ERI was contracted to load, transport, and dispose of 35,730 cubic yards of railroad ties and power poles from a site in Maricopa, AZ. Over 1000 truckloads hauled the near 9000 tons of contaminated wood to the landfill as special waste.
ERI was contracted to perform a site cleanup at tire collection and processing facility 50 miles south of Phoenix. ERI HAZWOPER technicians were required to segregate the three types of processed tire rubber and load the material into super-sacks for recycling; 1300 super-sacks were filled and banded to pallets. Old conveyors, mixers, and miscellaneous equipment were transported to a staging area for auctioning. Waste fuels, oils, paints, batteries, and household chemicals were scattered throughout the 12-acre site. All waste items were gathered, tested, and transported for disposal.
