Construction of Waste Control Specialists’ first hazardous waste landfill began in December of 1995. Twenty years later, the company holds multiple state and federal licenses and permits to treat, store and dispose of low-level radioactive waste at its 14,000-acre site in Andrews County. WCS currently operates four independent disposal units.
