Waste Disposal & Waste Management: Lancaster

About Elk Environmental Services
It’s inevitable: businesses that produce and supply important services also create waste—and that waste can be disposed of in a responsible and economical way for the business. That’s where Elk Environmental Services comes in. Based in Reading, Pennsylvania and founded as a subsidiary of the well-known Empire Group (currently celebrating 60 years in the business), Elk benefits from over half a century of specialized work in Central and Eastern PA. We bring the same dedication to excellence and customer satisfaction to our local and regional jobs alike, and we are proud to call Eastern Pennsylvania our headquarters.
Elk supplies both hazardous materials and non-hazardous waste analysis, packing, transportation, and disposal. But we believe that each company deserves a custom approach, so that’s why we are a full service environmental company that can do everything from consulting on minimizing or consolidation waste streams to providing sustainable and affordable beneficial reuse, recycling, and incineration solutions.
It all starts with our expert staff: chemists, environmental science, and dedicated professionals with over 200 years of industry knowledge between them. Combine that with our centrally located office in Reading, Pennsylvania with our expansive fleet of vehicles and equipment and you have a company that knows how to supply the waste disposal solutions that your company needs.

The Presvac
Among our fleet of vacuum trucks is one in particular: the Presvac. The Presvac vacuum truck has a high volume blower attachment and is designed to handle sludges, solids and liquids. The Presvac can be used with a secondary containment vessel, such as a vacuum box, or elevated and opened to dump solids. The Presvac's state-of-the-art filter system enables the unit to handle both hazardous and non-hazardous materials while minimizing the release of air-borne particles. The Presvac has a capacity of 3,200 gallons and can haul approximately 2,200 gallons over the road.
The Empire Group
Elk Environmental is one of six subsidiary companies within the Empire Group—founded in 1955. The Empire Group remains family owned and operated today, and as such Elk benefits from working closely with Empire Services (specializing in demolition and excavation) and Berks Transfer, which was built to accept 1,000 tons of waste per day. Your company can be sure to get the best price for waste disposal services because of our ability to handle jobs in-house.
