E&P and Special Waste

Twin can accept Special Waste at its Landfills (Disposal Sites). These include Asbestos, Petroleum Contaminated Soil, Exploration & Production (E&P) Solid and Liquid Waste, used and out of date products and food, inks, toilet, sand and grease trap waste, and many other Special Waste materials.

A Waste Profile Form or Liquid Waste Profile Form must be completed and submitted for approval in advance for Special Waste collection or delivery to one of our Sites. Lab testing may be required.

A Manifest proving the waste was accepted for disposal at a properly permitted facility will be given to the customer and acceptance and payment for disposal of the special waste.

Contaminated Soil – Twin Enviro can accept contaminated Soil that passes a paint filter test (a USEPA test to determine if the waste is a liquid or a solid). Soils exposed to crude oil (benzene), drilling mud (barium), or other contaminants, usually must be lab tested, should be profiled, and must always be approved in advance. The Waste Profile Form for solids or the Liquid Waste Profile Form for liquids can be downloaded from the “Forms” tab.
 
Drill Cuttings – Cuttings can be accepted as an exempt special waste at all our facilities, usually as a liquid waste. This waste is to be profiled, lab tested (if necessary), and always approved in advance. Download and complete the Waste Profile Form under the “Forms” tab and call the Disposal Site you plan to use for additional requirements.

Liquid Waste –Twin can also dispose of non-hazardous liquid waste at its Disposal Sites near Steamboat Springs/Craig and Canon City. Liquids are mixed with ash, wood chips or other solidification media in a large double lined and monitored basin, and after it is a solid, the mix is transferred to the working face and covered.
 
Liquid Waste must be profiled, laboratory tested, and approved in advance so Twin can be assured it is not hazardous. Most of these liquids cannot be put in the sanitary sewer. Liquids can be transported in your truck or ours. Typical waste streams include sand traps, exploration and production muds and drilling fluids, petroleum contaminated liquids, industrial and wastewater treatment plant sludges, ink, liquid truck spills and cleanups, out of date product, septic tank and portable toilet waste, and the liquids removed from re-refining used oil.
