- Year Founded:
Tri Rinse, Inc. was founded in 1981 in response to emerging regulations requiring proper cleaning and management of empty chemical containers. The company began by providing mobile triple rinsing of containers regulated under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Mobile services were provided for major corporations throughout the United States and included work at some of the largest Superfund sites in the country.
As the company grew, it began to expand services to include the mobile crushing of steel and shredding of plastic containers for recycling. In addition, process equipment and tank cleaning were added to the service lines. Tri Rinse had gained the respect of numerous major corporations and was continually being called upon to provide mobile cleaning and recycling services.
With increased business, in 1987 Tri Rinse established a fixed-base operation in St. Louis, Missouri to provide for receiving and processing of containers. With a central location in addition to its mobile operations, Tri Rinse continued to expand services to include off-specification warehousing, product recovery, and the development of some of the largest mobile shredders in the country, currently supporting DEMIL services throughout the United States and the Middle East.
In 2007, the company moved into an impressive 212,000-square foot facility in St. Louis, Missouri, less than one mile from Interstate Highways 70, 55, 44, and 64. Twenty-eight years experience in the environmental services industry helped shape the design and layout of the Tri Rinse headquarters. We have dedicated areas for insecticides and pesticides as well as herbicides. The new facility provides support to the diverse mobile services as well as container management, product recovery, packaging, warehousing, and recycling.
