A substantial percentage of RECON work includes removing impacted or hazardous waste materials and the associated decommissioning and demolition (D&D) of sites. RECON performs surgical and mass removal of impacted media including above and below ground tanks and piping, concrete supports and associated production buildings. We employ emissions control systems, from temporary cover agents to fully enclosed negative-air structures at sensitive remediation projects. RECON employees are trained to perform work in personal protective equipment (PPE) levels B, C and D. In many cases, project requirements for Zero Emission of fugitive dust, odor, target contaminants and excessive noise are required. We provide turnkey off-site disposal of contaminated media by truck and rail to appropriate disposal facilities.
