Hazardous Waste Cleanup: Clean Harbors Environmental Service in Prince George, Virginia

On this page:

The facility began operation as Belpar Environmental in the 1980’s, and was acquired by Chemical Waste Management (CWM) of Oak Brook, Illinois. CWM operations at the site included lab packaging, underground storage tank removal and installation services, processing, storage, and transportation of waste, and acceptance of waste oil, which was subsequently shipped off-site for treatment and/or disposal.

Cleanup Status

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) reviewed all available Facility data and determined that there were no unaddressed releases of hazardous waste or hazardous constituents from the Facility. The decision represents "Corrective Action Complete without Controls".

Clean Harbors began leasing the property in September 1994, when it purchased the operations from CWM. The 3.61-acre property was leased from A.A. Forbes of Prince George, Virginia. During Clean Harbor’s operation, the site has been used as a hazardous and non-hazardous waste storage and treatment facility. Clean Harbors subsequently withdrew the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Part B Application on August 27, 2001, after undergoing RCRA closure of the tank farm, and operated as a wastewater treatment facility regulated under the Clean Water Act (CWA) until 2004. The site was later used as a service center for oil and hazardous material spill response activities and scheduled environmental services. Clean Harbors vacated the site in November 2010.
