Clean Earth acquires Soil Remediation

Staff report

Clean Earth Inc. announced the acquisition of Soil Remediation Inc. of Kingsland, GA. The acquisition marks Clean Earth's ninth soil treatment and recycling location in the U.S. Now with two facilities in the Southeast--Moore Haven, FL and Kingsland, Ga--Clean Earth is able to geographically expand soil recycling and disposal services in both the Florida and Georgia.

SRI, now known as Clean Earth of Georgia, is a thermal treatment facility processing non-hazardous petroleum-contaminated soils. Within a 100-mile radius, Clean Earth of Georgia can easily service remediation projects from Savannah, GA, to Gainesville, FL.

In 2011, Clean Earth recycled approximately three million tons of soil derived from various construction sites throughout the Northeast. These recycled soil volumes are expected to increase in 2012 with the acquisition of SRI, and the success of Clean Earth of Southern Florida in Moore Haven.

In addition to Clean Earth of Georgia, Clean Earth owns and operates ten additional facilities throughout the northeast. Treatment platforms at these locations consist of bioremediation, chemical fixation of RCRA hazardous waste, thermal desorption, aggregate production, drill cuttings and pipeline cuttings, and stabilization of dredged material.
