Description of Services:Mid America Fuels, Inc. operates three barges at this site for the receipt of wastes from towboats. Total capacity of the barges is roughly 677,000 gallons.

Wastes received onto barges include mainly slop oil/bilge water, diesel fuel, used oil, fuel, and air filters, garbage, and some paints, but may include a wider array of solvents, such as isopropyl alcohol.

Gravity separation of slop oil and bilge water is conducted in barge hull tanks. Water is removed, tested, and diluted with potable water to be re-used for cleaning solids from barges (conducted by sister company National Maintenance). Separated oil is eventually sent to cement kilns or asphalt batch plants and used as ancillary fuel. Miscellaneous paints are recycled (ultimate use not provided).
