MILESTONE: We've removed 50,000+ lbs. of waste from potentially polluting the SoCal Coastline
 Oct 12, 2016 | HazAwayToday.com

HAZAWAYTODAY.COM RESPONSIBLY REMOVES 50,000 LBS. OF WASTE FROM POTENTIALLY POLLUTING THE SOCAL COASTLINE

L.A.-based Household Hazardous Waste Removal Service Offers Most Environmentally-Friendly Solution for Removing Household Hazardous Waste

EL SEGUNDO, CA – Since its inception in late 2015, HazAwayToday.com has safely removed over 50,000 lbs. of hazardous waste from Southern California homes and businesses, helping to protect the coastline from increased pollution. Hundreds of residents and businesses throughout Southern California have relied on HazAwayToday.com to conveniently pick up waste. With HazAwayToday.com services, customers can avoid lines at distant collection sites and prevent toxic spills in vehicles during transport.

“Our service ensures timely pick up and proper disposal of hazardous waste so it doesn’t end up in the trash or down the drain. Many of these toxic items end up in bodies of water such as the Santa Monica Bay—and we’re trying to prevent that,” said Drew Boyles, founder of HazAwayToday.com. “Many people aren’t aware of the dangerous chemicals stored in their properties or the damage that improper disposal causes to the environment.”

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that Americans discard as much as 69 million gallons of paint each year. That’s millions of gallons of un-recycled paint headed straight for the nation’s landfills. The EPA also estimates that one gallon of improperly disposed paint has the ability to pollute up to 250,000 gallons of water.

In addition to paint, the company collects a wide range of hazardous waste materials, such as cleaning solutions, pesticides, aerosols, colorant solvents, adhesives, batteries, fluorescent bulbs and other toxic, ignitable or corrosive materials. The certified staff at HazAwayToday.com spends more than 80 hours in new hire training on the testing, recognition and handling of hazardous waste.

“Our business model gives us an excellent opportunity to educate and serve our community while also minimizing, and even eliminating, negative environmental impacts,” adds Boyles.

HazAwayToday.com guarantees the safe, legal and environmentally sustainable removal of hazardous waste within 24 hours of booking service while avoiding hefty fines and minimizing damage to the planet.

Exclusive: Is There Hazardous Waste in Your Property?

iStock_65755039_MEDIUM.jpg

There’s nothing like a house that’s ready to sell.

The floors sparkle, the light bulbs burn bright, the scent of fresh cookies wafts through the air, and dangerous chemicals threaten to poison anyone who sets foot on the property… Wait, what?

According to Drew Boyles, the founder of waste-removal company HazAwayToday, the problem is more common than you might think. And the removal process itself? Challenging, to say the least.

“Movers, and anyone other than the homeowner, cannot legally remove and transport items like paint cans, pesticides, lights, aerosols, cleaning agents, pool chemicals and other chemicals and hazardous waste,” Boyles explains. “Additionally, in many jurisdictions, individuals cannot transport more than 15 gallons (or more than 125 lbs.) of household hazardous waste in their vehicles.”

And leaving hazardous waste behind is, unfortunately, an all-too-common practice–and that can be dangerous, particularly for the new homeowners. “Oftentimes, these chemicals can be dangerous, especially if they’re exposed to high temperatures,” says Boyles. “Some household items contain flammable and combustible liquids. When exposed to heat, items like pesticides, cleaning supplies, aerosols, chemical sprays and mists, can be dangerous. Additionally, many of these items are toxic to humans and animals.”

Agents should be on the lookout for a wide range of commonly used hazardous waste materials, including:

  • Paint, stains, lacquers, paint thinners, etc.
  • Motor oil, oil filters, car batteries and household batteries
  • Pesticides and herbicides
  • Aerosols, bug spray, WD-40, etc.
  • Fluorescent light bulbs
  • Mercury thermometers or thermostats
  • Pool chemicals
  • Cleaning solutions
  • Bleach and other oxidizers
  • Old TVs, CRTs, and other miscellaneous electronics

If you suspect that your property may be hiding some unwanted materials (and the majority of them do), you can search common areas (such as sinks, garages, sheds, and other storage areas) for evidence of hazardous waste.

Waste removal can be a huge hassle for homeowners, and often includes, according to Boyles, “long lines at infrequent collection sites” and “transporting old paint cans, motor oils, and other items in their personal vehicles.”

In addition, waste removal can be downright dangerous if the homeowner doesn’t know what they’re doing. “Careless and unlawful hazardous waste disposal practices jeopardize safety in your home and the well-being of the planet,” Boyles cautions.

Boyles recommends hiring professionals to take care of the waste instead. The right service will guarantee that the waste materials are removed in a safe, legal, and environmentally sustainable manner, helping the homeowner avoid legal repercussions and minimizing damage to the planet.

HazAwayToday.com Weighs in: Flint, Michigan
 Feb 12, 2016

High levels of lead have plagued Flint, Michigan’s municipal water supply for at least a year, prompting extensive emergency measures to keep residents safe. The disaster has also resulted in massive costs to municipalities- both financially and in terms of tax-payer trust. In the United States today, the average household stores up to 10 gallons of hazardous material. Improperly labeled and stored materials can pose a threat to families and particularly to young children. But in the case of our water, improperly disposed of hazardous waste can pollute our waterways.

Household hazardous wastes are sometimes disposed of improperly by pouring wastes down the sink or toilet, on the ground, into storm sewers, or tossing them out with the trash. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the dangers of such disposal methods may not be immediately obvious, but certain types of household hazardous waste have the potential to:

• cause physical injury to sanitation workers
• contaminate septic tanks or wastewater treatment systems if poured down drains or toilets
• pollute bodies of water if poured ino storm sewers
• present hazards to children and pets if left around the house
• contaminate ground water and surface water that is used as a source of drinking water if sent to unprotected landfills

So how can local residents take a proactive approach to keeping water supplies safe?

For your personal safety, know the hazards of the materials you're working with. Read the labels, request material safety data sheets (MSDS) on new products, know what precautions, and know what safety gear and clean up procedures are advised. Relying on the expertise of hazardous waste removal companies can save you the time and the trouble, so considering calling your local professionals. HazAwayToday.com offers a safe and convenient means for handling, removing and disposing dangerous chemicals, products and other materials. Historically, residents have had to handle and load hazardous waste into their personal vehicles and drive to a collection center during limited weekend hours.

Historically, residents have had to handle and load hazardous waste into their personal vehicles and drive to a collection center during limited weekend hours.

“There hasn’t been a convenient option for residential hazardous waste removal because of daunting regulations,” said co-founder Drew Boyles, CEO, HazawayToday.com. “We spent three years studying, understanding and structuring our business model to the regulations.”

The company collects a wide range of hazardous waste materials, such as paints, toxic chemicals, household cleaners, aerosols, bleaches, flammables, batteries, pesticides, automotive supplies, and more. The certified staff at HazAwayToday.com spends more than 80 hours training on the testing, recognition and handling of hazardous waste.

Waste Remover At Your Disposal
 Jan 21, 2016 | Subrina Hudson

Throwing away hazardous materials such as old paint cans, batteries and household cleaners is no one’s idea of a fun time, especially for homeowners who must schlep the messy junk to a local collection center.

That’s why co-founders Drew Boyles and Eric Busch last month launched HazAwayToday.com, an El Segundo disposal service.

Boyles said the company is the first to pick up dangerous chemicals, products and other materials directly from people’s homes, making it easier for them to get rid of these substances in an environmentally friendly way.

“I always knew there was this unmet need,” Boyles said. “Customers have said, ‘It’s about time.’ We’ve helped people who had a family member pass and needed to clean their home.”

Customers in Los Angeles and Orange County can call or book the service online and a technician will arrive at the customer’s home within 24 hours of the order. The technician will collect and dispose of the waste and fill out the required government paperwork.

And if you’ve got an old jar filled with suspicious-looking liquid sitting around, technicians can run a test to see if it’s toxic. HazAwayToday charges $1.39 a pound with a minimum charge of $89.

Boyles said the materials are taken to a collection facility in Long Beach.

Disposal of hazardous waste, he explained, is a highly regulated industry. It took three years of research and planning before the company could launch.

“A lot of things had to happen to ensure the regulatory agencies that we had the right procedures and safety protocols in place,” he said.

HazAwayToday has already serviced about 100 residential customers, he said, but it also plans to help small to midsize businesses. An expansion into Northern California and other states is also planned.

“We both care about the environment,” said Boyles. “We need to do more to educate (people because) if they put this in the trash can it is going to end up in a landfill.”

Founder Drew Boyles feat. in "El Segundo earns 'Most Business Friendly' award"
 Dec 16, 2015 | Mark McDermott

For the second time in less than a decade, El Segundo has been named the “Most Business Friendly City” among the 88 cities of Los Angeles County.

EDAC chair Drew Boyles is the founder of several local and regional businesses, including 1800-GOT JUNK and HazawayToday.com, as well as the regional director of Entrepreneurs Organization. He admits, however, that he was initially skeptical of the development council.

“To me, I’ve always scoffed at the notion of public-private partnerships,” Boyles said. “But it’s really working in this situation.”

Significant aspects of the city’s current economic boom grew out of ideas originally aired at EDAC, including an emphasis on better marketing the city that resulted a public relations campaign led by PSM Communications that has helped draw a lot of attention to El Segundo. At any given meeting of the 18-member council, Boyles said, a wide range of topics that helps the city set its course are discussed in a freewheeling manner that has helped build creative momentum and attract businesses. The last meeting, for example, featured a speaker from the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada, which helped recruit Tesla’s $5 billion dollar battery “Gigafactory” to the area.

“We take a lot of ‘best practices’ in terms of economic development from speakers like this, and some of those ideas get put into practice here,” Boyles said. “We are always hearing from leading edge thinkers…And it’s really made a difference.”

Another outgrowth of EDAC is the arrival of the prestigious business incubator Starburst Accelerator, which had great success in Paris and chose El Segundo as its second location. This happened, in typical El Segundo fashion, because the founders called and two days later were presenting at an EDAC meeting. Continental Development president Richard Lundquist offered the firm office space on the spot, and now, less than a year later, Starburst has arrived —  last week, the firm held a “pitch contest” in which several cutting edge fledgling tech companies sought support and funding for new ideas to an audience that included venture capitalists, other startups, and aerospace titans such as Northrop and Boeing.

“So it’s already started to attract more entrepreneurial attention,” Boyles said. “They are going to bring in more companies.”

The best, Boyles said, is likely yet to come.

“For me, there is just this incredible energy here, because you’ve got this huge variety of businesses, in terms of both size and industries,” he said. “When you are an entrepreneur, it makes it really exciting to have all this inspiration around you.”

Founder Drew Boyles feat. in "The surge in El Segundo"
 Sep 10, 2015 | Mark McDermott

El Segundo balances growth with its hometown character to emerge as the South Bay’s most vital city.

El Segundo City Manager Greg Carpenter relishes the opportunity to give tours in the town he manages and grew up in. These tours, in Carpenter’s city-issued 2004 Crown Victoria sedan, have been occurring with increasing frequency over the last few years.

As Carpenter steers visitors through his city, he almost invariably hears the same two comments: “I had no idea this was here.” And then, a bit later, “I want to be here.”

El Segundo is experiencing a wave of development, the magnitude of which is unlike anything seen in recent South Bay history. El Segundo has very quickly become the area’s most economically vital city. More than $1 billion in investment, representing eight million square feet of new office, retail, and amenity space, has been recently built or is underway within the the city’s five square miles. The transformation rivals the area’s post World War II aerospace expansion in the middle of the last century.

EDAC chairman Drew Boyles said that El Segundo has just begun. He recalled a conversation with Aerospace Corporation CEO Wanda Austin in which he speculated that the city could boast at least 800 PhDs in its workforce.

“Wait,” she said. “I have over 800 Phds in my facility alone.”

“So our number was way off,” Boyles said. “There is so much intellectual brainpower in this city, and now you bring in this incubator, Starburst Accelerator, that everyone on the planet wanted to land, that has been so successful already in Paris. That is going to be huge for all the LA area, let alone El Segundo itself. The innovation that will happen here is mind boggling.”
