This opportunity came to the attention of Mr. Usher from his nephew who was a principle chemical engineer in the design of the Keystone Oil Company. As the Great Depression released its grip on the country, and manufacturing plants ramped up their operations once again, Charles was joined by his son, Morris. Together, they grew Usher Oil to become a major supplier of used oil fuels for heavy industrial furnaces.

As EPA regulations pertaining to the handling and sale of used oil were introduced to the recycling industry, Usher Oil sought further expansion. We bought additional properties and greatly enlarged our capabilities for processing vast volumes of untreated waste waters and used oils, ensuring we can meet the many demanding criteria imposed on the industry by federal, state, and municipal agencies.

Research led us to choose a treatment system which includes chemical, oxidation, and precipitation techniques. We used the guidelines of the EPA, and they recommend dissolved air flotation (DAF) as the best available technology for the removal of fats, oil, grease, and metals. Our waste-water and used-oil processes are the only ones in Michigan able to use two DAF units either in series or parallel sequence for the most effectively treated outbound effluent. In addition to producing waste waters that can meet the standards mandated by the EPA, our acid cracking and proprietary chemical oil treatment process allows us to produce the highest quality on-specification used oil fuel.

We look back over 8 decades to the first company collection truck, and think about the dozens of others we’ve owned over the years that have faithfully serviced our customers. We consider the tens of millions of gallons of used oil that we have safely recycled for reuse in industry once again. Only upon these reflections can we appreciate the commitment to our customers and heritage – a commitment that must be maintained by the 4th generation of this proud, family-owned and managed company.

What type of waste services do most waste companies offer?

Most waste companies offer services such as garbage collection, recycling, and hazardous waste disposal. Depending on the company, they may also provide specialized services like medical waste disposal or electronic waste removal. Additionally, some companies may also offer consultation and sustainability services. It is best to check with your local waste company for a complete list of services they provide.

What happens if I need additional services?

Suppose you require additional services, such as an extra garbage pickup or special disposal for hazardous materials. In that case, it is best to contact the waste company directly to discuss options. Many waste companies are willing to accommodate special requests, but there may be additional fees associated with the extra services.

What are common types of waste facilities?

Common waste facilities include landfills, composting centers, and incineration plants. Landfills are the most common waste facility, where trash is buried and then covered with soil. Composting centers process organic materials, including food scraps, yard trimmings, and agricultural wastes, into a nutrient-rich fertilizer for the soil. Incineration plants burn solid waste such as paper, plastic, and other non-toxic materials, which can reduce the volume of trash by up to 90%. Depending on the location, some waste companies may also offer specialized services like hazardous material disposal or medical waste treatment.

Do all waste companies offer recycling?

Most waste companies offer some recycling service, although the types of materials accepted and the collection methods may vary. Many waste companies also offer a special program for electronics or hazardous materials that must be disposed of safely. It is best to check with your local waste company for more information on what types of services are available.

What is the most sustainable way to manage my waste?

The most sustainable way to manage waste is by reducing, reusing, and recycling. Reduce the waste you produce by avoiding single-use items and investing in more durable goods. Reuse items whenever possible, such as donating unwanted clothing or furniture instead of throwing them away. Finally, recycle any items that cannot be reused, such as paper and plastic. Additionally, composting organic material can help reduce the amount of waste going to landfills.
