The WRI Philosophy: “Waste Disposal Made Safe and Simple”

WRI strives to provide easy-to-use, high-value services, delivered by a team committed to “best in class” environmental health and safety compliance. We have the in-house capability to not only test and treat waste, but to provide a full range of transportation services.

As a pre-treatment facility, you benefit from secondary certification when the liquid wastes are tested at the JEA water treatment plant. In addition, we take the time to discuss all costs before a job begins, and provide quick and accurate billing when the job ends. WRI is committed to making the transaction as simple and reliable as possible.

Additional Specialized Services Available

With easy access to our parent company Moran Environmental Recovery, LLC (MER) we can also coordinate your environmental and industrial service needs including industrial cleaning, Coast Guard approved over the water transfer, and emergency response.

Regulatory and Technical Support

WRI provides regulatory and technical support to our clients as the first step to full compliance with all regulatory standards. Whether analyzing waste streams or completing required paperwork, you'll benefit from unrivaled concierge service. Our safety and regulatory compliance record are unmatched in the region.
