Our History

New Waste Concepts, Inc. was founded in 1987 in Toledo, Ohio as Newastecon Inc.   Born out of the Federal Subtitle D and CERCLA legislation, The founding shareholders became pioneers in the environmental industry by being the first company to engineer and patent a product to be used specifically as an alternative daily cover. It was considered innovative, bold and risky because the term ADC was newly created only in the legislation.  There were no regulators, nor a single customer that could define what an ADC was.   Today ADC materials have become part of the daily operation of a landfill and represent a wide range of alternate products.   Over the 25 years of NWCI’s existence, it has continued to develop a broad range of cover materials making sure that they continued to be cost effective for its customer base.  Patented specialty and extremely durable long term covers offer up to 2 years of durability. This diversity not only solidified NWC’s position as a leader in remediation covers, but they also set the standard for landfill covers.

In the early 90′s New Waste Concepts began to better understand what it was selling.  We no long just sold a cover or odor control product line but we sold a process to meet Federal and State standards.  That process included offering it’s clients equipment specifically designed to apply cover materials in a landfill. NWC’s R&D team would customize hydroseeders to add more functionality and make applying covers much easier. Today many of the features you find on the average hydroseeder were designed and tested by New Waste Concepts, Inc.

As time passed NWC continued to innovate, introducing the ProGuard line of ADC’s while its R&D team began working on big ideas like: How to accelerate the stabilization process of a landfill? How do you produce a cleaner gas from a bio-reactor? This resulted in New Waste Concepts expanding it’s product line to include chemical neutralizers and bacteria & enzyme technologies used for controlling odors, birds.

Soon after NWC began researching and comparing delivery systems for the chemistries they had devised and found that the traditional method of fixed nozzles was antiquated and extremely inefficient. Thus the development of the Tornado rotary Misting Head in either a hydraulic or electric version, and the equipment platforms which used the rotary misting head:  the Hurricane, the SWAT Odor Control machine, and the Tornado misting system

Today NWC is leading the way again on Evaporation technology. It is the only manufacturer of a leachate evaporation system that can be scaled up or down to meet the customers needs without increasing cost per treatable gallon or liter.   It is also the only system designed around specific droplet sizes to maintain environmental control over drift of particle so your leachate droplets are not traveling off site.  The Typhoon Evaporation Technology is a cost effective and efficient process for disposing of or minimizing the amount of treatable leachate.   The Typhoon  maintains an efficiency rating of about 70%.

New Waste Concepts has proven over the years it has always been ahead of the curve and our goal is to continue that tradition and we move further into the 21st century.
