Disposal of Evidence
Wasatch Integrated operates the Davis Landfill in Layton, Utah. The Davis Landfill has provided secure destruction for many years, primarily offering an option to customers requesting secure disposal but unable to incinerate. Our services have now been broadened to include customers who previously incinerated sensitive materials at our Energy Recovery Facility. Our goal is to provide secure landfill disposal to customers, with assurance of destruction. Customers are allowed to witness, take photos, and have the option to receive a Certificates of Destruction.
Disposal of DEA Controlled Substances and “Take Back Program” Pharmaceuticals.
Landfilling is an acceptable disposal method for controlled and non-controlled substances.
- The Federal Register, Volume 79, Number 174, Part 1317.90 Subpart C, states that, “All controlled substances to be destroyed … shall be destroyed in compliance with applicable Federal, State, tribal, and local laws and regulations and shall be rendered non-retrievable”.
This means that the Davis Landfill is an acceptable site for controlled substance disposal. The criteria for legal disposal of controlled substances is that they be “rendered non-retrievable”. Disposal at Wasatch’s Davis Landfill, which includes mixing, compacting, covering, and burial, will render the waste non-retrievable.
Disposal of Documents
The landfill is a viable option for sensitive document destruction. Our personnel and process will insure your sensitive documents are effectively destroyed.
