ACT possesses a fleet of fully licensed hazardous waste transportation service vehicles. We
keep in-stock a large supply of drums, packaging materials and PPE in all of our branch
locations to ensure we are always able to meet the materials needs of our clients.


ACT is proud to offer Waste Management Software, which tracks and compiles information on
all hazardous waste and non-hazardous waste shipped by ACT. The system is updated regularly
by the developers of the software. This ensures that changing compliance and regulatory
concerns are incorporated in the application's structure. Through this application, ACT generates
manifests, tracks shipments, records waste history, maintains profiles, and compiles reports for
waste managed by ACT. The database for this system is stored on an ACT server and the data
undergoes daily off-site back up to remote servers ensuring maximum file security, application
stability, and data preservation.

ACT can provide the CUSTOMER with summary reports in Excel, Adobe Acrobat, or in email
text format that summarize waste volumes shipped per site. At any time the CUSTOMER can
access a variety of updated reports showing waste volumes by profile, manifest number, date
shipped, and or TSDF utilized. These reports will be available through the ACT Account

Additional pre-configured reports, such as our Account Review Meeting Reports, can be
generated upon request or on a regularly scheduled basis, and are offered at no charge to our
customers. Some examples of available reports include biannual report summaries, bar charts of
waste volumes shipped per profile per building, and/or costs broken out per profile per quarter,
per year and/or per location. Please see Appendix II to view an example waste tracking report.

To ensure service support and consistent pricing, ACT uses Integrated Sales and Customer
Service & Relations Platform Software. This application tracks contract changes, pricing, client
requests, and special client activity. The data in this application is held entirely off-site from
ACT, and undergoes back-up several times per day, ensuring preservation of sensitive and
critical customer activity, history, contracts, and reports. This software can be accessed from any
computer or PDA with an internet connection, which enables ACT Account Managers, Customer
Service Reps and Managers to have immediate and constant access to all customer related issues.

Project: Transportation of Leachate Water at Camp Pendleton, CA

Scope of Work:

Shaw Infrastructure, Inc. contracted ACT to provide vacuum tanker truck services. ACT pumped out
approximately 200,000 gallons of leachate water containing low levels of Tritium from onsite storage
tanks and temporary bladders located at the Las Pulgas Landfill. Leachate was pumped from the storage
tanks and bladders into the vacuum tanker trucks and the liquids were transported to the # 8 STP located
approximately 6-miles from the site.

At each site, ACT provided portable tanker truck containment berms. Prior to each load being released
for transport, samples were taken from the tanker trucks and analyzed by Shaw Infrastructure, Inc. to
ensure the Tritium did not exceed the permissible levels.

After all leachate was transported offsite and disposed of, ACT commenced cleaning all of the bladders
and storage tanks. Prior to cleaning the storage tanks, ACT confined space personnel conducted
atmospheric testing in each tank to ensure they were “Safe for Men”. Each tank was cleaned utilizing a
high pressure water washing system. All hardened scale and other contaminates were chemically and
pneumatically removed from the surfaces of each of the tanks.

Project Description:                    Various upgrades or changes to existing oil-water separator

Scope of Work:

The US Naval Aviation Depot (NADEP) located at Naval Air Station North Island contracted ACT to
perform cleaning and upgrades to NADEP’s oil-water separator (OWS).

Located adjacent to Building 457 on Naval Air Station North Island NADEP maintains an OWS with a
six-inch sewer discharge. The existing ¾-inch sampling valve was not efficient for taking samples and did
not meet county regulations. ACT removed approximately four feet of the existing 6-inch discharge line
and installed the necessary piping to create a low point in the line to accommodate sampling of the
discharged liquid.

A storm drain with a weir is located directly adjacent to the OWS. This weir diverts any oily water into a
wet sump which is then pumped into the OWS. Cleaning of the weir and the wet sump were required.
Using confined space procedures, ACT personnel cleaned the sump and weir using high-pressure water.
All wastes were placed into a vacuum truck and transported to an on base facility for disposal.

ACT also removed existing check valves from 3” feed lines and installed two new check valves of the
same type and in the same location as the existing ones. ACT removed the top from the OWS to gain
access for the cleaning of the panels. The inside was washed with high-pressure water and the liquids
were collected into a vacuum truck and transported to an on-base facility for disposal.

                                        Drummed Wastes.

Scope of Work:

Continental Maritime of San Diego (CMSD) contracts ACT to provide routine vacuum truck services, roll
off bin services, and field analysis of drummed and packaged wastes. ACT prepares all the appropriate
documentation for each shipment including manifests, shipping reports, waste characterization reports,
and disposal certificates. Additionally, ACT prepares all profiles required by the end disposal sites and
works closely with each disposal facility staff to obtain an approval for every shipment of waste.

CMSD is a large ship repair business located on the San Diego Bay. Given their close proximity to the
bay, CMSD also contracts with ACT to provide emergency response services in case there is a spill in or
around their facility. ACT provides emergency response waste management services to CMSD for both
hazardous and non-hazardous waste spills.

Project Description:                   Hazardous Waste Management and Emergency Response

Scope of Work:

ACT has successfully completed numerous projects for the San Diego Unified Port District (SDUPD).
Some of the projects include:

      Analysis of soil samples taken during excavation activities at the 10th Avenue Terminal. After
       analysis was complete, ACT completed all profiles and other appropriate paperwork for shipment
       of wastes. ACT loaded soil into end dumps and transported soil to end disposal sites.
      Removal of large sections of exhaust ducting from the roof of Building 45 at South Campus
       Facility. Ducting was required to be cut up in 4’ sections and craned off of the roof. After
       ducting was removed, it was relocated to an area where it was pressured washed and made ready
       for shipment in ACT provided roll off bins. Additionally, ACT removed all PCB mastic from
       wall joints.
      Cleaning and replacement of fabric on the entire storm drain catch basins within the South
       Campus Facility to prevent further contamination from surface run-off.
      Creating a Microsoft Access application that tracks each manifest for each generator within the
       SDUPD’s properties. This program saves the SDUPD hundreds of man hours each year by
       streamlining their reporting to the various regulatory agencies. Each manifest is scanned into the
       ACT database and the information is extracted and placed into files. The SDUPD can search and
       print the data by waste stream, waste codes, and a variety of other information over the course of
       a year.

Project Description:                    Site Remediation Services

Scope of Work:

ACT provided personnel and equipment to excavate, transport and dispose of approximately 600 tons of
RCRA Asbestos contaminated soil. Working closely with Tetra Tech and D-R-Horton, ACT excavated
soil from predetermined zones on a vacated lot located in Southeast San Diego. All soils were placed into
double lined end dumps trucks and made ready for transportation. All soils were transported out of state
to a certified Class II Landfill for disposal.

Since this site was designated for construction of new homes and adjacent to residential dwellings,
monitoring of air quality beyond the work site and personnel working on site was essential. The project
was completed on time, under budget and without incident.

  Advanced Chemical Transport was incorporated in California on March 27, 2000. Walter H.
  Singer was the president and sole shareholder. ACT’s first facility was opened in March of 2000
  and began accepting shipments in April of 2000 with 3 employees. Since that time ACT now

ACT is not tied to utilizing any one TSDF and therefore has the flexibility to utilize a multitude
of end disposal facilities specializing in specific waste stream disposal. Additionally, ACT ships
significant quantities of wastes to these facilities, which in turn assists us in offering competitive
pricing to our clients. In shipping our clients’ waste to the most appropriate and cost-effective
TSDF, overall costs for disposal can be kept to a minimum.

ACT maintains a very high sense of responsibility when managing your waste disposal,
treatment and/or recycling needs. We realize the ramifications of using subpar facilities that do
not place compliance and safety as their top priority. That is why our first criteria for selecting a
TSDF partner is based on their safety and compliance records. The nature of the materials we
work with are dangerous. Therefore, to protect your liabilities as well as our own, we also verify
the TSDFs we use are financially secure and maintain adequate insurance and closure cost

Due to the high cost of transportation and the dangers with transporting your waste over long
distances, ACT always considers location as a factor in choosing our disposal partners. We
make every effort to keep the waste within reasonable distances from the point of generation.
This limits your exposure to risk from an incident on the road and helps keep your cost down.

Processing capabilities and handling costs are also part of our selection criteria. We take into
consideration that each TSDF we use is the best suited to receive and handle the waste we send
them. This means we further limit your risk that could be incurred from 3rd party transporters
and excessive facility storage time while waiting to be treated. Also, by selecting the right
facility partner for each waste stream we are able to obtain the best market price for your
disposal, treatment and/or recycling needs.

Finally, ACT always makes a conscientious effort to find as many green treatment and recycling
options as possible for your waste. That is why we are able to recycle over 80% of the waste, on
average, we manage for our customers.

ACT only utilizes approved TSD Facilities that are audited biannually by our EH&S/Compliance
staff. Each facility utilized must pass a rigorous audit process including a review of relevant
records, permits, and past incidents. ACT also requires each facility to be physically inspected
during this process. Our audit information is available for review upon request.

The following page contains a partial list of TSDF facilities that are currently approved for use
by ACT to manage our customers’ waste disposal, treatment and/or recycling needs.
