Syncon Resins Superfund Site Case Study
Transportation & Disposal of PCB Remediation Waste USEPA Superfund Site
The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) was responsible for remediating the Syncon Resins Superfund Site in Kearny, New Jersey. The scope of work required shipping of over 10,000 tons of RCRA hazardous and PCB contaminated soil from the project site over an extended time frame with an intermittent shipping schedule.
Heritage Waste Solutions partnered with the remedial contractor’s team to develop a transportation, treatment, and disposal program to meet the extended construction schedule. Heritage offered transparency of records and documentation so that the interested parties including USEPA and USACE knew where the waste was in the transportation and disposal process.
Heritage Waste Solutions provided a multi-modal transportation strategy that included rail shipping of the hazardous soils to three different TSDFs. From August of 2017 through January of 2018, Heritage shipped over 7,500 tons of contaminated soil from the project site on an intermittent schedule. Intermodal containers were transported to Indianapolis via rail prior to being trans-loaded onto trucks for either treatment at the Heritage Environmental Services RCRA Part B permitted treatment plant or for direct disposal at Heritage Environmental Services Subtitle C Landfill located in Roachdale, Indiana. A third waste stream was transported to Ohio via rail prior to being trans-loaded onto trucks for treatment at the Heritage Environmental Services RCRA Part B permitted incinerator for treatment.
The transportation portion of the project was completed on-time, with no injuries or incidents. The Heritage transportation and disposal program enabled the contractor to meet the aggressive off-site disposal schedule, while providing visibility into the transportation and disposal process.
