- About Us
"I can sleep a little easier at night now knowing that the company has enrolled as a Spill Center client. Over the past two years, our territory has grown dramatically. Our trucks are running throughout the Northeast states and up into Canada. We needed somebody who is familiar with the regulations in all those localities. That’s why we reached out to Spill Center. Our company has an excellent safety record, but in the unfortunate event that we have a spill or incident outside of Maine, we know Spill Center will be there to assist us with finding cleanup contractors and advising us about reporting requirements, even in the middle of the night and on holidays."
"It's difficult to know every environmental regulation for every locality throughout the country. The Spill Center offers that expertise everywhere, around the clock. It's nice to know that you have it so that you're not inadvertently violating regulations or forgetting to make notifications. It's not an insurance company's responsibility to report spills to the authorities. And they don't pay fines for failure to report. You can call the Spill Center, and they make sure that all the right authorities are notified. You can be sure all the steps needed to contain the spill and limit cleanup costs are taken care of, too."
"The Spill Center handles my reporting to keep me out of trouble with the authorities. They have current listings of qualified cleanup contractors, and they help me find contractors in areas where I don't already have people set up. I know I can always go to the Spill Center with questions and get reliable answers. To me, that's invaluable because it allows me to handle incidents properly and avoid fines and unreasonable charges."
"We travel through 48 states, as well as Canada and Mexico - through hundreds of jurisdictions - and there is absolutely no way on Earth we could keep track of all those individual cities, counties, states and federal reporting regulations. Knowing that Spill Center stays on top of all the regulatory requirements is a relief. The same thing applies to their cleanup contractor database. We know we can get the assistance we need after a spill with a single phone call to Spill Center. They do an outstanding job. It's the ease of reporting and the quality of their employees. You're talking to people who know exactly what needs to be done, and they do it efficiently. That is precisely why we will continue to sign up for their service. Spill Center is a great resource for any carrier, and I recommend them wholeheartedly."
"We're proud of our record and consider our safety program to be second to none in our industry. We have a very comprehensive emergency response program to handle our products, but we felt we could benefit from the Spill Center's resources to help us handle over-the-road spills of diesel fuel and oil. Since we cover almost 50 states, it is very difficult to keep up with all the different regulations and reporting requirements related to environmental releases. The Spill Center will help us identify qualified spill cleanup contractors wherever we have an incident on the road. We have relatively few spills in the course of a year, but the Spill Center deals with these incidents every day -- 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They are knowledgeable about who to deal with and what it should cost to handle spills anywhere in the country. I expect them to save us a lot of time and effort in managing any spills that might occur in our transportation operations."
