Our Story

As part of the Empire Group, Elk Environmental has evolved into a respected, full-service industrial and environmental remediation and waste management services firm. Since 1988, we have broadened our line of services, expanded our service area, built an experienced team, and attained additional licenses and certifications. Our health and safety officers stay on top of the latest EPA, RCRA, DOT, PA DEP, and OSHA regulations to ensure our field employees are adhering to them through extensive training. 

Serving the Mid-Atlantic Region

Today, Elk serves clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic states. Our expert staff provides a diversity of services, including decontamination services, vacuum truck services, hazardous and non-hazardous transportation and disposal, lab packing, and more than 40 safety and compliance training courses.

Elk works with its affiliate companies to provide turnkey services. We can provide remediation services with DVC transporting and disposing the contaminated soil at an approved facility. We can also dispose non-hazardous materials at Berks Transfer, a waste transfer station that can accept up 1,000 tons of solid waste per day.
