Environment

Imagine a world where waste no longer exists—where waste products aren’t simply discarded—where the resources of the earth are used with purpose and returned with care. This is the world of Newalta.

We provide solutions for product recovery and recycling that were once unimaginable. In doing so, we minimize waste and environmental impact, which reduces the need for trucking and disposal and adds value for Newalta and our customers.

Our approach to finding environmental solutions means that each year Newalta recovers or recycles products that would otherwise be sent to landfill or incineration, including:

  • Crude oil
  • Lead
  • Used lube oil
  • Wastewater
  • Solvents
  • Oil filters

Newalta recovers approximately $400 million worth of products per year.

Newalta demonstrates environmental leadership beyond basic regulatory compliance. Our commitment is rooted in the focus, energy and expertise of our team.

Our operations reflect ISO standards and many of our facilities have registered to these standards.

Our environmental programs include:

  • Internal audit program that continually improves our performance
  • Collaborating to advance regulatory change where appropriate
  • Training our people in environmental practices
  • Identifying our environmental aspects and implementing controls
  • Participating in industry stewardship programs

Newalta believes there is a better way to think about waste. The very nature of our work demonstrates our commitment to the environment. We provide solutions.
