Wastewater Treatment

Perma-Fix's wastewater treatment facility is the only facility in Florida permitted by the EPA and State to treat hazardous wastewater. Perma-Fix's process safely removes toxic substances such as benzene from contaminated water. After verification that all water quality standards have been fully satisfied, treated water is discharged under permit.

Types of Wastewater Treated:

  • Contaminated rain water
  • Oil/water separator waste
  • Soakage pit water
  • Tank bottom water and sludge
  • Oily water
  • Bilge water
  • Groundwater from pump tests
  • Groundwater from UST projects

Waste Oil Management

Perma-Fix is Florida's leader in recycling used oil. Our route trucks will pick up your waste oil in bulk or drums on a regular schedule or an a call-in basis.

All oil collected by Perma-Fix is converted into high-quality fuel for use in permitted industrial furnaces such as asphalt kilns.

Recycling in this manner exempts used oil from management as a hazardous waste, protects the environment and conserves valuable natural resources.

Oil Filter Recycling

Florida has restricted the disposal of used oil filters in landfills. Perma-Fix provides you with a safe, legal alternative by collecting oil filters for recycling. Recovered metal is recycled into various steel products. Recovered oil is converted into high-quality fuel.

Coolants & Antifreeze

Perma-Fix will safely dispose of used automotive and industrial antifreeze or coolants. Our fleet of route trucks will pick up your material in either bulk or drums for processing through Perma-Fix's wastewater treatment system.

Hazardous Waste

Perma-Fix provides a cost-effective alternative to incineration by blending liquid and solid organic wastes into usable, high-BTU products for energy recovery.

Typical hazardous wastes include paints, solvents, thinners, degreasers, and other flammable materials in the form of liquids, sludges or solids.

To minimize your costs and liability concerns, Perma-Fix utilizes industrial furnaces that are fully permitted to burn hazardous waste for energy recovery.

All waste is screened to ensure compliance with RCRA guidelines and to verify the generator's profile.

Our rapid profiling capability allows us to approve your wastes in less than one week.


Our radio dispatched vacuum trucks, tankers and route trucks provide rapid response to your most challenging cleanup needs.

Laboratory Services

Perma-Fix understands your need for accurate and timely analytical information. To support this need and comply with strict regulatory requirements, we utilize our network of modern laboratories. These laboratories are among the largest in the industry and enable us to provide rapid turnaround.

On-Site Treatment

Perma-Fix offers a unique on-site treatment process using a proprietary stabilization technology that renders certain wastes non-hazardous. By eliminating the need to send materials to a hazardous waste landfill, the Perma-Fix process can minimize your waste, your disposal costs and your liability concerns.

Oily Waste Management

Perma-Fix is South Florida's leader in recycling bunker sludge and used oil. Our tank trucks will receive all types of oily wastes alongside your ship at any of Florida's major sea ports. We provide seamless ship-to-plant service at the Port of Miami, Port Everglades, Port of Tampa and Port Canaveral in full compliance with MARPOL 73/78 and U.S. Coast Guard regulations.
