“I am very happy to report that our incidents were handled both professionally and within compliance. You've been able to quickly respond from a hazardous materials standpoint. In addition, your quick efforts have extended to the process by which to amend generator status; with regulations and efficiency in mind. Equally important, your team was worked quickly to remove the waste, both hazardous and non-hazardous, from our very important customer accounts.”

Preparing for a Spill — What You Need to Know

Spills of hazardous materials, diesel fuel and other regulated substances are subject to a maze of environmental regulations. Nearly 30,000 federal, state and local jurisdictions across the US require incident reports from spill generators.

The time to prepare for an environmental release is before it happens. That involves creating a spill contingency plan with detailed instructions for handling spills quickly and complying with all regulations associated with those incidents. Fuel spills and other accidental releases or regulated materials, even in small quantities, can turn into expensive incidents for the spill generator who is not adequately prepared to deal with them.

Learn more about why:

  • Insurance companies do not pay fines and penalties arising from failure to report spills or late reporting.
  • Any diesel fuel spill, even a minor one, requires fast action to avoid environmental damage.
  • The average diesel fuel spill release is just over 100 gallons and the fees and clean-up can top $15,000.
  • Emergency crews and fire departments can charge exorbitant fees for their time and equipment unless the response is quickly and professionally managed.
  • By law, your company as the spill generator, is responsible to pay:
    • All damages and costs related to environmental impairment and waste disposal.
    • Property damage and bodily injury arising from the spill.
    • Fines and penalties for failing to comply with reporting regulations.
