- CH2M Hill Report: A Recycling Exemption for Oil/Water Separator Wastes at a Large Military Base in California
Our customers at Camp Pendleton, California referred Enviremedial Services, Inc. to the US Army Reserves. After initial contact with USAR personnel, we performed a demonstration of our management services at Camp Pendleton. The USAR personnel we impressed with our level of service and with our waste minimization capabilities.
Enviremedial Services, Inc. was awarded a contract in October 2004 to manage the 37 oil water separator sites controlled by the US Army Reserves. This contract differs from our other on-site customers because the sites are located throughout California, Arizona and Nevada. Rather than have personnel permanently staged on-site, ESI personnel travel site-to-site to manage the separators.
By their own calculations US, Army Reserves saved $180,000 and reduced waste 83% in the first year of their ESI contract.
