Reco Biotechnology Provides Soil Remediation Services for Contaminated Soil

Reco Biotechnology has been dealing with contaminated soil throughout the mid-Atlantic region since 1993, and our 165,000 square foot facility is well-equipped to strip your soil of any petroleum-based contaminates you may have. Our specialized bioremediation process uses naturally occurring bacteria to break down the contaminant material safely and effectively, bringing the soil back to federally approved levels.

Once the soil has reached our facility, we apply a balance of bacteria and nutrients to break down the contaminants to a basic elemental level.

We test the soil at certain intervals throughout the bioremediation process to ensure the bacteria are doing their job, and upon completion of the treatment process, the soils are certified through independent laboratory analysis to ensure full compliance with federal regulations.

Transportation of Contaminated Soil

Reco Biotechnology offers soil transportation services utilizing roll-off containers, tandem, trip, Tri and quad-axle straight dumps and even dump trailers as needed to make your job that much easier.

Soil Remediation Forms

Before you contact us to remove or accept your contaminated soil, we ask that you please fully review our Facility Acceptance Forms and fill out the Soil Data and Certification Sheet (SDCS).  This will allow us to serve you more efficiently, and make sure all federal regulations are followed.
