Modern Waste was a big help in taking old files and shredding as we prepare for relocation. Thank you for your honesty and integrity in running an outstanding organization.

Your delivery people were knowledgeable, very helpful, and courteous. They explained everything, packed up what we had on site, and set up the containers for us. They knew what we needed better than we did. Containers are easy to use. Everything’s great so far. Thank you.

    Hazardous Business Waste Solutions

    Modern Waste offers solutions to any of a San Jose business’s waste disposal needs. Whether the job is big or small, we can provide specialized treatment options for your company’s unique needs. Many other companies only offer certain kinds of waste disposal, leaving your business with time-consuming and costly research while dealing with multiple vendors. Modern Waste is your one-stop removal company that can take care of all your needs, so you don’t have to deal with many different entities.

    In our waste removal process, we use the highest standards to keep the environment and surrounding communities safe from pollution. Our experts are up to date on all the laws and regulations that pertain to waste disposal and make sure that no one is ever out of compliance. We provide all the required equipment and proper labeling — we will come to your business and pack up the waste for you, and transport it away from the site. We will document and keep track of every material we remove and can provide you with certifications and reports once we are done.

    Hazardous Waste

    Hazardous waste must be meticulously dealt with. First, every material that can be reused should be, and any material that can be recycled should be. We have access to a global network that can take the reusable materials.

    E-waste is a special kind of waste that needs to be disposed of with the utmost care. Electronic waste can contain data and documents that can be harmful if it falls into the wrong hands. All companies need to keep their information private, and government entities deal with information that must be kept confidential. Modern Solutions will wipe and destroy all information on devices before they are reused, recycled, or destroyed. We will catalog and give your business a report of every device that comes to us and explain the process the devices went through to guarantee that all information is no longer recoverable.

    Modern Waste is the leader in San Jose battery recycling. Billions of batteries are disposed of every year, and many end up in a landfill that could have been successfully recycled. We make sure that every reusable material of a battery is recovered, and that everything else is disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.

    Chemical and Lab Waste

    Chemicals that we deal with on a daily basis include pesticides, cyanide, ammonia, acetonitrile, and many heavy metals.

    Lab waste from places such as medical and dental facilities can offer some unique challenges. Modern Waste has the right equipment to safely handle and ship organic and inorganic compounds, sharp surgical tools and needles, and chemistry byproducts. We pack it up from your San Joe lab and remove it efficiently.

    Contaminated Soil

    Removing and treating contaminated soils is a task that Modern Waste specializes in. This includes removing any extra debris that may be found at the site. There are many different reasons that soil needs to be treated, and each polluted substance must be treated in a specific way.

    Construction Waste

    Modern Waste can reuse, recycle, and dispose of a variety of construction wastes, including nails, bricks, wood, and other large and hazardous objects often found at a construction site.

    Industrial Waste

    Industrial waste including sludge, chemical solvents, and plating wastes can all be removed efficiently and cost-effectively. Modern Waste also specializes in wastewater treatment.
