We are always looking to add to our growing team of employees.

Environmental Protection

WCS provides the safest, most secure, and long-term solution available for waste disposal while fully protecting the environment. WCS’ greatest ally in this effort is the geology and geography of our disposal sites. 

Tour Our Facilities

The 1,338-acre WCS site includes the Texas Compact Waste Facility, the WCS Federal Waste Facility, our Byproduct Facility, and our Hazardous Waste Facility, as well as full-service treatment, storage and cask services. WCS is taking necessary precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus and therefore tours have temporarily been suspended. As soon as coronavirus restrictions are lifted and travel is deemed safe, we’d love to have you visit and show you why we are so proud!
