PUBLIC NOTICE | Renew the Hazardous Waste Permit for Safety-Kleen Systems Inc.

ADEQ gives notice of its intent to renew the hazardous waste permit held by Safety-Kleen Systems Inc. (Safety-Kleen) Chandler facility.


6625 W. Frye Road
Chandler, AZ 85226

The facility is currently operating pursuant to Arizona Administrative Code (AAC) Title 18, Chapter 8 (40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 264).

Type of Permit:

The permit allows Safety-Kleen to continue to operate a commercial storage facility for spent organic solvents, aqueous-based cleaners, paint wastes, photo imaging wastes and dry cleaning wastes collected from Safety-Kleen’s customers in the state of Arizona, mainly the metropolitan Phoenix area. The facility includes an office building, a warehouse that provides enclosed container storage, a tank farm with three aboveground storage tanks, and a loading dock with a solvent return-and-fill station and two drum washer units. The Safety-Kleen Chandler facility is a “service center” where wastes are temporarily stored and sent to offsite recycling centers for purification or to a permitted treatment, storage or disposal facility (TSDF) for treatment or destruction. The purified solvents are then returned to the Safety-Kleen Chandler facility as reclaimed clean product. The facility is designed to store 17,160 gallons of hazardous waste in containers and 11,400 gallons in the hazardous waste storage tank. The wastes will be stored and safely managed in approved containers and containment areas. There are no treatment or disposal units onsite, and none are proposed in the draft permit renewal.
