East Penn Sanitation Earns ISO 140001-2004Certification
BETHLEHEM, PA (August 19, 2014) – We have again achieved certification for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO140001-2004), a classification that addresses various aspects of environmental management. ISO provides practical tools for organizations to identify and control their environmental impacts and constantly improve their environmental performance.
Our transfer station has achieved the original distinction in 2008; ISO 14001:2004and ISO 14004:2004 focus on environmental management systems. The other standards in the certification focus on specific environmental aspects such as life cycle analysis, communication, waste type identification, reporting and auditing.
Our transfer station has the ability to use railroad for the transportation of construction and demolition waste for disposal. This enables us to be highly competitive while minimizing truck traffic and fuel consumption; major components to our ISO Management System.
Locally owned, our facility features paved roads and is under roof therefore the environment is safer, cleaner, less muddier and easier to operate in for individuals, businesses and institutions using the facility. Turnaround time is under 30 minutes, saving the customer time and money.
Since 1982, we've been family owned serving the Lehigh Valley with residential and commercial waste services including roll off, quick delivery dumpsters, and curbside pick-up, in addition to the transfer station on Hanoverville Road. Call 610-759-6398.
Our PA DEP permitted Waste Transfer Station plays an important role in the area’s regional waste management system by linking communities’ solid waste collection programs to the final waste disposal facility. We consolidate waste from multiple haulers and customers into transfer vehicles for a more economical, efficient and environmentally friendly shipment.
Our salvage/recycling program recovers over 2,000 tons of salvageable materials each year (such as bricks, concrete blocks, metals, wood, etc.), keeping reusable materials out of landfills.
