Waste Characterization

Learning about your waste

Prior to off-site disposal, the waste needs to be properly characterized to determine if the waste is deemed Hazardous, Universal, or Non-Hazardous. GemChem provides this service to our customers utilizing our extensive knowledge that includes understanding generator process’s, SDS review, and/or lab analysis. By studying the lab results of samples taken at your site, GemChem will characterize your waste and develop a comprehensive plan for the transportation and disposal of the waste your company generates.
