Our Impact

Heritage Strategic Projects Group

Heritage Environmental Services, LLC (Heritage) is a national Transportation and Disposal company specializing in the disposal of bulk hazardous waste.

Within Heritage, there is a focused and dedicated Strategic Projects Group (H-SPG). H-SPG offers multiple rail, barge and truck modalities for shipping waste to key Heritage-owned and operated disposal facilities.

H-SPG is a vital partner for your next Remediation Project. H-SPG can fit seamlessly on your site hierarchy. H-SPG knows how to work for and with a Remedial Contractor but understands the delicate balance between the Contractor, Generator, and Consulting Engineer team. H-SPG has the expertise to be a strategic partner on the team, without overstepping its role, to provide logistics for the transportation and disposal of your hazardous remediation waste.

Our Commitment

Provide transportation and disposal solutions to our KEY disposal facilities using our extensive regulatory and remediation knowledge to assure a safe, compliant, and contractually complete project to our customers on time and within budget.

When you are working with Heritage, you are working directly with the end disposal facility and our dedicated logistics team.

Heritage utilizes a combination of truck and rail strategies to enable cost-effective and sustainable solutions for the transportation of RCRA hazardous or PCB contaminated soil, debris, or sediment to our TSDFs. Multimodal logistic strategies will facilitate long-distance moves using Heritage-owned and controlled assets which includes trucks, intermodal rail equipment, and gondola railcars. Shipping by rail significantly reduces the amount of CO2 emissions when compared to trucking and helps to foster sustainable green remediation strategies.

In the last decade, Heritage has become a recognized leader in the transportation of hazardous and TSCA waste materials by rail, shipping well over a million tons. We have the experience and expertise to design a logistics strategy for your project, and as a rail shipper and direct customer of the Class 1 railroads, we can do it efficiently and cost-effectively.

With the same principle as an aircraft carrier, the Heritage intermodal rail fleet can be deployed to a nearby rail-served locale within proximity of the origin point for the project.

H-SPG provides experienced representatives to manage your waste in a streamlined, compliant, and cost-effective manner. Other T&D companies want to provide remediation services combined with transportation and disposal. H-SPG does not compete for the construction work but instead, focuses specifically on the T&D while at the same time understanding the challenges of remediation. H-SPG representatives focus on T&D and don’t have the distractions of having to sell multiple services, which leads to less responsiveness.

Direct Line to Strategic Heritage Flagship Facilities

Heritage owns and operates numerous disposal facilities, including RCRA Stabilization, Subtitle C Landfill, and RCRA Incineration. Heritage representatives focus on T&D of TSCA remediation waste and RCRA hazardous waste only! This makes for responsive feedback on your next project. H-SPG provides veteran representatives to your site—not inexperienced entry-level reps.

Multi-Modal Capabilities

H-SPG manages a mature network of intermodal, gondola, truck, and barge modalities and can provide an array of transportation options. H-SPG often utilizes both gondola and intermodal transport options simultaneously from a single remediation site to assure no downtime and keep projects running on time and on budget.

Heritage prides itself on being a teammate.
