Tulsa Business Staff

The Environmental Quality Co., based in Michigan, recently announced the company has purchased a hazardous waste management facility located in Tulsa from A Clean Environment Inc. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“The addition of the Tulsa, Okla., facility into EQ’s extensive facilities and services network enhances our western U.S. presence,” said David Lusk, president and CEO of EQ. “We currently conduct business across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. EQ Oklahoma brings us strategically closer to our western customers with new waste treatment and recycling capacity and capability.”

The facility, which will be known as EQ Oklahoma Inc., is an RCRA-permitted hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facility that can accept and manage nearly all waste types and waste codes in drum and bulk containers.

The facility consists of treatment operations for both hazardous and nonhazardous wastewaters and solids. Wastes accepted include spent acids and caustics, chemical process wash water, off-specification or discarded chemicals, rinse waters, degreasers, coolants and other processing waste suitable for on-site treatment. Other services include transportation, emergency response and industrial cleaning.

EQ now includes 24 service locations in North America. This is EQ’s second acquisition in 2010.
