OESI is Ohio Commercial Hazardous Waste Management Facilities

Each year, our Active Members process over 600,000 tons (that’s 1.2 billion pounds) of hazardous wastes generated by businesses, industries, and institutions in Ohio and other states. This represents 70% of the hazardous waste handled commercially in Ohio.

Ohio Providers of Waste Management Goods and Services

Associate Members offer support services such as transportation, drum cleaning, testing, communications, and training to the Ohio hazardous waste management industry.

OESI members use state-of-the-art methods for processing hazardous wastes. Their operations are primarily regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) through permits issued by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA). Members with RCA-permitted facilities comprise the active governing body of OESI.

OESI members promote chemical recovery, reuse and recycling wherever possible. The group advocates sounds methods and programs for treating and disposing hazardous wastes in Ohio.
