Alternative Facility Disposal Options are available through our extensive network of contracts and long-standing relationships with other disposal facilities. Material Solution Services, Inc. (MSS) provides environmental consulting services in the recycling and waste management industries, to determine the proper disposal options available for a wide array of materials. MSS is experienced in managing the disposal of materials ranging from beneficial reuse soils to hazardous waste. Every project presented is reviewed and compared to acceptance criteria at the CORE-owned facilities, as well as, numerous alternative facilities, in order to present the most appropriate and cost effective disposal or recycling options available for every material on every project.
Do you carry insurance?
Yes. In addition to normal business insurances, all properties being developed by CORE are covered by a three million dollar ($3,000,000.00) site-specific environmental pollution insurance policy to cover the transportation, disposal and other related costs in the event PADEP requires the removal of any materials from a site. This type of insurance policy is quite costly and is not mandated by any governing authority but is kept in place to protect the valuable land asset being created.
How long will it take to redevelop these properties?
The time frame on these types of projects is directly related to the amount of suitable material generated in the area. While a final completion can be as long as ten to twenty years, after the initial startup phase, portions of the properties can become viable for redevelopment within a few years.
