Beatty, NV

US Ecology’s Beatty operation, located 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas in the Amargosa Desert, treats and disposes hazardous and non-hazardous industrial wastes.  The site's arid climate and deep, stable geology are well suited for permanent waste isolation. Combined with a state-of-the art multi-layer landfill liner system, the Beatty facility is an ideal choice to minimize environmental liability.  Beatty is one of a few U.S. sites that also accepts hazardous / PCB “mixed wastes”.  Beatty also acts as a cost effective transfer location for shipment of refinery tank bottoms to our US Ecology Texas facility. In May 2007, Beatty was named an OSHA Safety Health Awareness Recognition Program (SHARP) site.

The Beatty facility accepts both bulk solids and containerized waste (including lab packs), and maintains an on-site laboratory to perform required analytical analyses, including TCLP tests, pretreatment recipe formulation and waste treatment verification. Services include:

  • Hazardous waste and PCB disposal 
  • Stabilization of inorganic wastes (e.g., metals) 
  • Chemical oxidation treatment of organic waste 
  • Encapsulation of debris
  • Full PCB transformer processing
  • PCB transformer recycling
  • Thermal desorption of oil bearing hazardous waste

Before shipping waste, customers must fill out a Waste Product Questionnaire (WPQ) and provide waste characterization information (analytical data, Material Safety Data Sheets, etc.). Our Customer Service staff can help with waste profiling, waste analysis and completion of forms for Land-Ban Restrictions. All wastes profiled to US Ecology are co-approved by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection. We also arrange transfer to solvents recycling, fuel blending and incineration services for waste not suitable for land disposal.
