What types of hazardous spills do you handle at A-1 Towing?


Most of what we see are HAZMAT spills that are the result of accidents in transport, like ruptured fuel tanks, or smashed radiators, batteries or transmission. Often after an accident the vehicles are damaged and the oils and other fluids escape onto the roadway.  Fortunately, A-1 Towing is trained to cleanup these type of spills. 

When is a HAZMAT company required?

“Under 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.1200 chemicals which are carcinogens, toxic agents, irritants, corrosives, sensitizers; agents which act on the hematopoietic system; agents which damage the lungs, skin, eyes, or mucous membranes; chemicals which are combustible, explosive, flammable, oxidizers, pyrophoric material, unstable-reactive or water-reactive; and chemicals which in the course of normal handling, use, or storage may produce or release dusts, gases, fumes, vapors, mists or smoke which may have any of the previously mentioned characteristics.”

What types of hazardous substances are handled?
