The complexity of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) regulations that govern businesses and employees using hazardous materials can be intimidating. Violations can carry stiff penalties and, in some cases, result in criminal charges against managers and companies.


Hazardous and non-hazardous wastes are required to be managed in accordance with Federal and State regulations.  Northern's team of highly skilled professionals provides assistance in this area through these benefits and features:

  • Northern's highly experienced team members provide an excellent resource for regulatory questions or concerns

  • Regularly scheduled services reduce volumes of waste onsite

  • Expert team members provide a seamless process of sampling and profiling your waste

  • All paperwork is prepared by our administrative staff for your review and approval each step of the process

  • Industrial and construction stormwater permit application, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) development and Best Management Practices (BMP) selection and implementation assistance.

  • Stormwater permit required inspection services and Dangerous Waste Compliance assistance and site audits.

  • City and County inspection compliance and corrective measure assistance. 

  • Northern maintains insurance coverage for various possibilities in amounts above limits required by law

Northern can evaluate areas that are out of compliance then develop a plan to help clients come into, and stay in, regulatory compliance.   We do this while accounting for the organization’s business goals and financial costs.

Transportation of all collected waste is sent to a properly designated treatment facility following all Federal, State, and Local Regulations.


Keeping in proper compliance with all current waste and disposal regulations is an integral part of keeping our environment clean for generations to come.
