Non-Hazardous Waste Facility state-of-the-art non-hazardous processing facility

SECURE PROCESSING

We own and operate a secure, state-of-the-art, 140,000-gallon non-hazardous material processing facility in High Point, NC. capable of blending fuels, separating water and fuel, stabilizing and solidifying non-hazardous sludge and solid waste for direct transport and disposal, Terra Nova Solutions ensures safe, compliant containment, and management of non-hazardous materials.

This means no dependencies on third-party leasing or contracting services: from on-site collection and transport to processing, containment, or disposal, Terra Nova Solutions controls the entire waste management lifecycle needs of its customers.

Energy Recovery

We work closely with Waste-To-Energy Facilities, providing waste and refuse that would otherwise have gone to the landfill. We all benefit as this waste stream generates significant quantities of clean, renewable energy and a reduction of greenhouse gases. Utilizing waste as a form of energy has become the baseline for success in many solid waste management systems.

Documentation

Terra Nova Solutions fully documents the disposition of all your waste. We retain copies of all documents pertaining to our services and we are willing to periodically audit your own documents to ensure that your records are also complete. We provide a flow chart that indicates the source and ultimate disposition of your waste so there are no questions or guesses regarding the waste disposal process.

We specialize in less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments, offering cost-effective solutions anywhere in the 48 contiguous states. We have clients in 16 states and we are expanding operations and service areas as word of our excellent reputation spreads!

Universal Waste

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes the fact that certain categories of hazardous waste are commonly generated by a broad range of establishments. To ease the burden of dealing with these ubiquitous wastes, the EPA has streamlined management standards for the following materials:

  • Batteries
  • Pesticides
  • Mercury-containing Equipment
  • Mercury Lamps

In general, materials that fall into the category of Universal Waste are not counted towards the totals that determine your Generator’s Category for hazardous wastes.

While some of the standards that pertain to other hazardous wastes do not apply to Universal Waste, the EPA still regulates storage and disposal. We provide a Certificate of Recycling with every shipment. At Terra Nova, we are the masters of waste recovery and re-use and we’re experts in all of the EPA regulations and requirements. Give us the opportunity to earn your business and you’ll discover what our clients have come to love about us—the comfortable satisfaction of knowing Terra Nova has everything under control.

Waste Disposal

We are masters of waste recovery and recycling. The Waste Analysis Study that we will conduct for you identifies every waste product from your operations for which there are recycling or re-use purposes. We handle it all—whether it is HAZARDOUS or NON-HAZARDOUS, large or small quantities, drums or bulk. Among the many options for disposal, we offer Fuel Blending of Btu waste for cement kilns (replacing the use of coal, oil and other fossil fuels) and waste burning to produce electricity.

Waste Recycling

Waste Recycling is the process of collecting materials from the waste streams that would have normally ended up in the landfill and processing these materials to create new products or finding ways to reuse them in alternative and beneficial ways.

By recovering and reusing useful materials from the waste streams we reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials and reduce energy usage, air and water pollution.

In the state of South Carolina alone, environmental service companies, like Terra Nova, recycle more than 1 million tons of municipal solid waste every year. This extends the life of existing landfills and positively impacts the state economy in several significant ways: through increased tax revenues, expanding job opportunities and developing new manufacturing processes.Our highly trained analysts can design a custom waste program for your operations, optimizing recycling methods and helping you maintain a safe, clean facility.

Waste to Energy

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) or Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste.

Energy Recovery describes any technique or process that helps reduce the demand for energy to the overall system. We work closely with local Waste-to- Energy Facilities, providing them with suitable solid wastes and refuse from your manufacturing or production processes that would otherwise have gone to the landfill.

Most often, Waste-to- Energy Facilities incinerate these solid wastes, producing thermal energy to generate steam that drives turbine electrical generators. Our local communities benefit from the extended life of the landfill and more clean energy.

Waste to Fuels

Another process utilizing both hazardous and non-hazardous waste is termed Waste-to-Fuels whereby waste is processed at cement kilns for fuels.

We work closely with our approved facilities, providing waste and refuse that would otherwise have gone to the landfill. We all benefit as this waste stream generates significant quantities of clean, renewable energy and a reduction of greenhouse gases. Utilizing waste as a form of energy has become the baseline for success in many solid waste management systems.
