US Tank Alliance to Provide Waste Removal Services for Speedway SuperAmerica and Marathon

COLUMBUS, Ohio—A leading national provider of underground storage tank (UST) system testing and cleaning, US Tank Alliance Inc., has been awarded a contract with the Marathon Oil Corporation and Speedway SuperAmerica’s waste drum transportation and disposal program.

The contract gives US Tank Alliance sole responsibility of drum pickup, transportation and disposal services for Speedway SuperAmerica and Marathon’s pickup locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin and West Virginia. Speedway SuperAmerica is a subsidiary of Marathon Oil Corporation.

Throughout the terms of the contract, US Tank Alliance will ensure that waste drums are properly handled and disposed of.  Marathon’s integrated data system (IDS) will notify US Tank Alliance of stations that need waste drums removed and when and where they can be picked up.  Marathon’s IDS also notifies US Tank Alliance of each drum’s hazard level.

Under the agreement, the cost of US Tank Alliance’s waste removal and disposal services will remain at a fixed rate regardless of where drums are picked up or gas price increases.

 “Providing waste removal services seemed like the next logical step since we have handled Speedway SuperAmerica’s UST testing and cleaning needs for the past, three years” said Fernando Crosa, president. “US Tank Alliance has the needed resources readily available for Marathon’s drum transportation and disposal program.”

US Tank Alliance has worked with the national chain of gasoline stations and convenience stores on previous projects throughout the past six years, including a single-source testing contract in early 2004.

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and working from five regional offices throughout the United States, US Tank Alliance manages system testing and cleaning services for a variety of underground storage tank (UST) clients—from major oil companies to sole proprietors. With an experienced staff, including 45 state certified technicians nationwide, and unique services like its PetroPure® tank cleaning system and TANKTRAXX guaranteed compliance tracking, US Tank Alliance removes the burden, confusion and hassle from businesses that operate USTs.  Integrity, expertise and a commitment to quality are the pillars of US Tank Alliance’s business operation. By maintaining these standards and continuously providing an unparalleled level of customer service, the company positions itself and its team as “the UST experts” and maintains its reputation as a premier provider of integrated tank system testing and cleaning services.
