Quala leads the industry in environmental stewardship, supporting green technology through the use of earth-friendly, safe cleaning products, recycling and reducing wastes. Additionally, Quala has committed the necessary resources to protect the environment and comply with all applicable environmental laws, regulations, permits and agreements. Compliance is evaluated on a routine basis with environmental risks continually being reduced through ongoing operating improvements and our emergency preparedness programs. All terminal personnel are trained annually in RCRA hazardous waste regulations.
Quala minimizes waste by utilizing a heels management program which returns heel to the customer as a product or is reused by the facility whenever possible. If a product cannot be returned or reused on site, it is managed as a solid waste by a RCRA-trained employee. Segregating hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams minimizes the amount of hazardous waste generated. Used oil and universal wastes are collected and recycled according to regulations.
