Whether it’s the slow buildup of household hazardous products and waste or an emergency, you might suddenly need expertise and equipment at your home’s door to tackle that problem. Our NEDT truck fleet is ready and willing to help provide residential hazardous waste services across Massachusetts. In this blog, we’ll go over various types of specialized vehicles and the hazardous waste disposal and remediation they provide to homes, streets, and even commercial buildings.
Our NEDT Truck Fleet for Home Hazardous Waste
While the NEDT Collection Centers are our most visible locations to Massachusetts residents, we also operate a large commercial-only service. This overlap of residential and commercial hazardous waste allows us to bring a whole fleet of vehicles to bear on hazardous waste, regardless of origin. Learn more about our specialized hazardous waste vehicles and how they help you at home with our gallery and descriptions below!
Hazardous Product Pick Up: Van & Box Truck
If you’ve used the NEDT pick up service, chances are you’ve seen the NEDT van or box truck pull up at your home. Which one is selected depends on several factors; the box truck may be used if there are multiple stops, high volume, or heavy hazardous waste (the liftgate is perfect for 55-gallon drums).
Home Contamination Cleanup: Vactor Trucks
These “Guzzler” trucks are used to clean up contaminated liquids and solids. For homes, this often means contaminated soil that can’t be removed by backhoe (either out of reach or near sensitive equipment or utilities) or a furnace oil spill (see this blog for a video of the process).
Spill Emergency Response Trucks
While not a residential service, NEDT is contracted with the state and local government for emergency spill response, so you may have seen our vehicles on the road near spill emergencies. These vehicles are pre-staged with spill response equipment so they can be sent out at a moment’s notice. See our commercial site for more details.
