United States Hazardous Waste Exporters: 2005-2012
There are over 411 exporters of hazardous waste located in the United States. Several of these exporting sites are owned by Clean Harbors. This company is known as a major importer of hazardous waste to the United States, but Clean Harbors exports hazardous waste to other countries, as well. Those exporting sites are seen on this map. The concentration of hazardous waste facilities in the eastern and northeastern United States leads to easy access to Canada, which is where a majority of these companies send their waste. By switching the view from kilograms to liters, a large northeastern concentration of sites is visible.
