About this location:

The Veolia North America-Trade Waste Incineration (Veolia-TWI) Sauget, Illinois facility is a 35-acre site, of which 25-acres are used for active hazardous waste management. Veolia-TWI is located in Sauget, Illinois, near St. Louis, Missouri. Veolia-TWI operates two fixed hearth, dual chamber, multi-type feed incinerators and one rotary kiln incinerator. Combined, they are capable of totaling 86 million BTU/hr. The facility currently includes 10 container storage units, 2 tank farms, 3 material processing areas and a drum decant area, as well as a complete analytical laboratory performing all analytical testing required by Veolia-TWI's permit. Veolia-TWI's RCRA Part B permit renewal application was submitted in November, 1997 and was issued an application completeness letter in April, 1998. In 1995, Veolia-TWI gained eligibility to accept wastes from CERCLA (Superfund) sites.

Veolia-TWI can receive waste in drums, hoppers, roll-off boxes, lugger boxes, or cubic yard boxes. Veolia-TWI can provide disposal services, which include: 

  • Lab Packs
  • Repacking of Waste
  • Water Reactive Chemicals
  • Oxidizers/Organic Peroxides
  • Pyrophoric Compounds
  • Irritating, Poisonous, Malodorous Material
  • Propellants & Explosives
  • Inorganic Wastes
  • Halogenated Solvents
  • Non-Halogenated Solvents
  • Organic Acids


Unacceptable wastes listed by code can be provided upon request. Incoming wastes are sampled and analyzed according to a formal Waste Analysis Plan (WAP). The WAP includes measures to sample and analyze wastes on-site according to the description of the waste provided by the generator; perform a fingerprint analysis for use on future incoming loads.

Incoming wastes are checked for the following characteristics: 

  • Physical State
  • Color
  • Layers
  • Odor
  • Water Mix
  • Gases
  • pH
  • Specific Gravity/Viscosity
  • Ignitibility screen
  • Cyanide screen
  • Sulfide screen
  • PCBs (as required)
  • Heat generation
  • Emulsion
  • Precipitation
  • Chlorine
  • Heat value
  • Radiation screen

Waste samples are taken on an average of one per bulk load and on 10% of drums of waste accepted. In the event wastes do not conform to the description listed on the waste profile sheet, Veolia-TWI personnel notify the generator to reconcile discrepancies. Where possible, profiles are amended by verbal approval by the generator. The return of waste materials occurs only as a last resort where discrepancies cannot be resolved between the facility and the generator.

Veolia-TWI receives two governmental agency inspections each year by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. Covered under Veolia-TWI's Facility Inspection Plan are misc. equipment, safety/emergency equipment, security devices, operating/structural equipment, inspections logs, and RCRA regulations (i.e. drum storage, tanks, etc.). There are no CERCLA or corrective actions associated with VeoliaES-TWI.
