About The US:

NRC operations in the United States began with the company’s founding in 1992 as an oil spill response provider following the introduction of the 1990 Oil Pollution Act (‘OPA 90’). Since then, we have expanded through strategic acquisitions and organic growth to offer a comprehensive range of environmental services. Clients within the public and private sectors rely on NRC for our expertise and unwavering commitment to excellence in the provision of emergency response, high hazard response, disaster response, waste management and transportation, landfill operations, remedial construction, industrial cleaning and maintenance, as well as training and consultancy services.

Our continuous growth and success across all our specialized services has enabled us to become one of the industry’s most renowned firms, recognized throughout the United States and around the world as a premier provider of environmental services. Today, NRC’s U.S. division (ES) employs over 1,415 environmental professionals based out of 65+ operating locations across the country. These locations include fully staffed and equipped operation centers, TSDFs, and full-scale landfill facilities.

As the world’s largest commercial Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO) and the only private contractor to hold the highest possible level of United States Coast Guard (USCG) classification in all continental regions, NRC provides its clientele with the best available response capabilities to hazardous materials incidents at facilities, in the water, over the road, and on rail throughout the United States.

Headquartered in Great River, New York, NRC operates from over 65 offices and facilities throughout the Pacific (including Alaska and Hawaii), Southwest, Southeast, Atlantic, and Northeast regions.

This strategic distribution of resources provides an unparalleled range of both service capability and geographic coverage, enabling our customers to have easy access to the technical personnel and equipment required to rapidly address and mitigate any environmental situation. Personnel located in each office are experienced in developing and implementing solutions which meet the requirements of federal, state and local regulations as well as a variety of other technical and business considerations.

With a focus on effective solutions and a shared respect for the cost of doing business, the NRC approach has resulted in the reduction of environmental liabilities for clients across the nation through the integrated application of science, strategy, and technology. Each operating group offers broad-based experience in all project phases – from initial planning and concept, final design through remediation, and final cleanup.

As environmental problem-solvers, our highly trained personnel and subject matter experts apply their extensive planning, scientific engineering, and hazardous materials/waste management experience to provide the superior integrated management needed for successful project completion. Throughout each project, NRC’s dedicated staff focus on working closely with the client to achieve their goals in the most timely and cost-effective manner while ensuring complete environmental and regulatory compliance.
