Hazardous Waste Disposal in Portland

Let Us Transport and Dispose Of Your Hazardous Material

There are frequently household and commercial materials that can’t be thrown in the trash because they risk causing harm to people, plants or animals in the area if they spill, are broken, or begin to deteriorate. These materials are considered hazardous waste. Disposal of these materials is where Alpha Environmental comes into play, serving Portland and the surrounding area.

What Constitutes Toxic Waste

There are a variety of leftover materials that should be considered hazardous waste due to their toxic, flammable, or reactive characteristics and are legally required to be carefully disposed of.

  • Cleaning products
  • Aerosols
  • Fertilizer
  • Light bulbs
  • Thermometers
  • Paints & thinners
  • Adhesives/epoxy
  • Oils
  • Antifreeze
  • Pool chemicals
  • Batteries

Hazardous Waste Removal Consulting

If you’re not sure what should be considered hazardous waste, Alpha Environmental provides hazardous waste disposal consulting that includes an assessment of the waste, sampling, inventory of what needs to be disposed of, packaging, transportation and ultimately the proper disposal of the commercial or household waste. We take care of every aspect in an affordable, safe way to make sure that you don’t have to worry if the waste is being properly disposed of.

While hazardous waste disposal is mostly for commercial properties, there are smaller instances where household hazardous waste needs to be managed and disposed of. Alpha Environmental can certainly handle any of these problems because you should not be disposing of hazardous waste like light bulbs, thermometers, and paints in the trash.

To avoid needing hazardous waste removal, in your household or commercial property, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality recommends:

  • Simply using safer alternatives that are not considered hazardous
  • Read labels before purchasing to understand the level of risk involved with each product. Does it say “Caution” or “Warning”?
  • When you do need to buy hazardous materials, don’t buy excess that you won’t use and will have to dispose of
  • If you do have products leftover, instead of disposing of them, give them to friends or family who can actually use them instead.

While hazardous chemicals might not seem like a big deal because you use them in your home or commercial property, properly disposing of them is essential and required. If you have questions or are in need of removal of your hazardous, chemical waste, call Alpha Environmental at 503-292-5346.

Can’t say enough about Alpha Environmental! Their costumer service is 10/10, they have really good systems in place, responsive, and professional. The gals in the scheduling department are always so kind! As a real estate agent, I use Alpha’s services numerous times a year. Either it’s for Mold bids, oil tank decommissioning, radon etc. They always do a fantastic job! Thank you for all the work you do!

Wow where do I even begin?? We’re absolutely thrilled by the work Alpha has done for us and we’re eternally grateful to them for ridding our house of asbestos tile! They’re polite, kind, professional — from estimator Filo to manager Dame to Jake, Melvin and the other two guys on the crew (so sorry we didn’t get your names) — you guys are awesome and we so appreciate your help.

Alpha environmental was extremely helpful in navigating me through the process of testing some leftover construction debris for asbestos so I could take it to the dump. Their office manager spent time with me on the phone discussing the options for sample collection, and was extremely friendly in answering my many questions. Sample drop off at the office was easy and the results even came back a few days earlier than expected. Will definitely return if I need more sampling done!

We used Alpha Environmental Services to conduct our home inspection, radon testing, sewer scope and oil tank decommissioning. Every part of their service was really professional. They took so many great photos of the house during the inspection and offered lots of explanation on what they found. Great team. Highly recommend!
