SET Environmental provides Hazardous Waste Transportation and Hazardous Materials Transportation. Services to commercial and industrial customers nationwide. We specialize in dependable transportation services with the most well-trained, professional drivers in the field.

You can rest assured that our integrated and comprehensive Hazardous Waste Transportation Services will meet all of your safety needs and concerns as well as protect you from liability.

With over 25 years in the field, SET holds numerous DOT (Department of Transportation) exemptions, allowing us to transport mixed hazard classes of waste when others cannot. This allows you to significantly save on resources and time, while ensuring all DOT regulations are met.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has replaced SafeStat with CSA 2010 (ComprehensiveSafety Analysis). Safety Measurement Systems (SMS) will be used to quantify the on-road safety performance of carriers and drivers. The data will be organized by Behavior Analysis SafetyImprovement Categories. SET's average BASIC scores are 50% better than the industry average.

All SET drivers complete RCRA DOT training, as well as hands-on training. All of our drivers must pass written and practical comprehension exams prior to being allowed to transport hazardous waste. SET drivers undergo security background checks (in compliance with Transportation Security Administration regulations) and our transportation fleet operates in accordance with our DOT Hazmat Security Plan, in accordance with the Department of Transportation Research and Special Programs Administration Security Requirements for Offerors and Transporters of Hazardous Materials (49 CFR Subpart I Security Plans).
