One of the most important aspects of waste transportation and disposal is ensuring waste streams are properly analyzed and classified. We have the expertise and knowledge to accurately assess your waste streams and ensure they arrive at their destinations safely and efficiently.

The Tervita bag and waste container system is approved for Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TGD) and USEPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) listed waste streams, as well as dangerous oilfield bags. Each Tervita unit comes complete with secondary containment to prevent potential issues during transport and offers internal cranes to lift, load and weigh either a bin or bag system. Also, all of our bins and bags are clearly marked with our Toll Free contact number so that your field staff may contact us concerning the container system on their site.
