We Don’t Bend the Rules About Regulatory Compliance
Hazardous and non-hazardous wastes must be managed properly. Environmental firms that bend the rules create significant risks for themselves and their customers.

We take compliance seriously and we intend to achieve an exceptional compliance record through careful diligence from our trained, professional employees and the various programs we have instituted to manage the collection, transportation and disposal of your used solvent products and wastes.

Reuse & Non-Hazardous Programs
The “Better Way” of Disposal
Our hallmark service, Parts Cleaning, is based on the awareness that our customers need to clean dirty parts but don’t wish to produce hazardous waste. To address this, we created the HCC Reuse and Non-Hazardous programs:
CRYSTAL CLEAN’s Non-Hazardous Program provides our customers with Premium high flashpoint, low odor mineral spirits and removal & management of the used mineral spirits as non-hazardous waste.
Thousands of customers have switched to the HCC Parts Cleaning Service and are enjoying not only the cost savings, but reduced paperwork, a safer workplace and greater concern for the environment.
Why not join them?
We provide top quality, premium solvent on our regular, scheduled visits and remove the used solvent as a product — not a waste — to be used as an ingredient in a manufacturing process. This unique approach provides substantial benefits for our customers over the old method of waste disposal:
The HCC Reuse Program reduces the amount of hazardous waste generated, thereby reducing manifesting and other regulatory reporting requirements.
The HCC Reuse Program results in true waste minimization as encouraged by the Environmental Protection Agency and other environmental groups.
More than 30 state environmental agencies have agreed in writing that the HCC Reuse Program is a correct and environmentally sound method of managing used solvent.
In fact, we’re so good at it, that we’ve boiled it down to 10 easy steps!

Additional Information About SDS
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires chemical manufacturers, distributors, and importers to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import and provide information to subsequent users.
