Dry Cleaning

Your customers like clean clothes, but they also want a clean environment. You’ve built your business as an environmental dry cleaner, but now a leaking chemical tank is releasing harmful chemicals into the environment and it’s threatening to undermine the trust your community has placed in you.

Toxic dry cleaning solvents such as perchloroethylene (perc or PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), and numerous other hazardous substances can contaminate the groundwater and soil, posing serious health risks for your neighbors. There is a solution. The scientists and engineers of American Environmental Corporation have more than 15 years of expertise in dry cleaner remediation to help you maintain your good standing as a responsible business and stay compliant with environmental regulations.

We offer dry cleaning waste disposal to help you remove hazardous chemicals before they affect your community, and to minimize dry cleaning environmental impact should such an event occur.

Environmental Services for Dry Cleaners

As the premier professional consulting, engineering and waste management contracting firm in the Midwest, American Environmental Corporation specializes in cost-effective solutions to the regulatory concerns of environmental dry cleaners. We offer efficient, scheduled service that will not interrupt your business.

Here’s how we can help:

  • Site assessments and evaluations — Soil and groundwater contamination is a common issue faced by dry cleaners due to historic use of toxic cleaning compounds. We provide comprehensive testing and remediation services to help you overcome this difficulty.
  • Soil and groundwater remediation — There are many factors to consider in designing and executing an environmental cleanup operation. These may include time, budget, regulatory, legal, and institutional requirements and neighborhood concerns. We provide a turn-key approach for optimal accountability, affordability and outcome.
  • Hazardous waste removal services — Our employees have extensive DOT, EPA and OSHA training in hazardous waste removal (including 40-hour HAZWOPER and confined space entry). Whether your solvents are contained on your premises or have leached into the groundwater, we will remove your chemical cleaners safely, in marked containers designated for that purpose.

Our fleet of specialized vehicles is licensed for use with hazardous materials and will transport your waste to the appropriate licensed disposal facility safely and efficiently.

  • Non-hazardous waste removal services — Some of your cleaning products may not be classified as hazardous, but they still must be disposed of safely. We can do that, too. Our non-hazardous dry cleaning waste removal services include taking care of all the details: permitting, physical removal of the material, and following best practices for recycling and waste recovery.
