Clean Harbors is North America's leading provider of environmental and hazardous waste management services.

The Company serves a diverse customer base, including a majority of the Fortune 500, across the chemical, energy, manufacturing and additional markets, as well as numerous government agencies. These customers rely on Clean Harbors to deliver a broad range of services such as end-to-end hazardous waste management, emergency spill response, industrial cleaning and maintenance, and recycling services. Through its Safety-Kleen subsidiary, Clean Harbors also is North America s largest re-refiner and recycler of used oil and a leading provider of parts washers and environmental services to commercial, industrial and automotive customers.

Headquartered in Norwell, MA, Clean Harbors has waste disposal facilities and service locations throughout the United States and Canada, as well as Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Revenues for 2013 increased 60% to $3.51 billion and net income of $95.6 million.

In 2013, the company acquired Evergreen Oil for $60 million, a California-based environmental services company that is one of the state's largest collectors of waste oil and runs the only re-refinery in the state.


The company, founded by Alan S. McKim, began as a small four-person tank cleaning business in 1980.

Its first major expansion was in the early 1980's with the acquisition of the Braintree and Natick, MA facilities. In 1989, Clean Harbors purchased Chem Clear, Inc., a company nationally recognized for its industrial aqueous waste treatment capabilities, with facilities located in Chicago, Cleveland, and Baltimore.

While the Chem Clear acquisition helped catapult Clean Harbors firmly into the waste disposal business, Clean Harbors continued to expand its geographic coverage by adding a Connecticut and a second Ohio treatment facility. Clean Harbors solidified its position as a full-service hazardous waste disposal provider with vast in-house disposal resources with its acquisition of the Kimball, NE incinerator in 1995.

Clean Harbors' laboratory chemical packing services, CleanPack, was formed in 1986 to provide industries, schools and universities, as well as communities with vital services to manage the collection, packaging and disposal of laboratory chemical and household hazardous waste.

Clean Harbors Industrial Services was formed in 1998. The company's industrial service crews focus on industrial cleaning and maintenance projects that typically require fast turnaround and may include hydroblasting, liquid/dry vacuuming, sodium bicarbonate blasting, steam cleaning and chemical cleaning of equipment and systems.

In 2002, Clean Harbors acquired the assets of the Chemical Services Division of Safety-Kleen Corporation. The Chemical Services Division, which was made up of 55 service centers, 33 waste management facilities and 4,400 employees, when combined with Clean Harbors existing locations helped create the largest network of disposal technologies and environmental services in North America.

In 2007, Clean Harbors acquired Teris LLC with more than 550 employees, several field locations, an incineration facility in El Dorado, AR, and a treatment, storage and disposal facility located in Wilmington, CA. Clean Harbors' investment in Teris further improves its ability to service customers and demonstrates the company's commitment to maintaining the largest array of service offerings in the environmental services industry.

In 2008, the Company acquired solvent recycling facilities in Chicago, IL and Hebron, OH broadening the Company's service portfolio and established a substantial presence for Clean Harbors in the solvent recycling market.

In 2012, the company acquired Safety-Kleen, a leading provider of parts cleaning and environmental services and the largest re-refiner and recycler of used oil in North America for $1.25 billion.
