Diversity and Inclusion

A Commitment to Awareness and Change

Over the past 40 years, Clean Harbors has recognized that a spirit of inclusion attracts the widest possible spectrum of experiences, skills, talents, and perspectives among our employees. With over 15,000 full-time employees across North America, Clean Harbors is proud to exhibit the power of diversity and inclusion every day.

Clean Harbors has initiated a Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee with a vision to: “Leverage a diverse and inclusive workforce to achieve superior business results”.

Our mission “Fosters a company culture that attracts the best diverse talent, values diversity, and encourages inclusion based on our Core Values”

The Steering Team supports seven Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) who drive objectives specific to their teams.

As a company serving thousands of people in hundreds of communities, we are in a unique position to acknowledge and appreciate the intrinsic value diversity and inclusion brings. As a result, we actively look for opportunities to encourage individuals, business organizations, and community groups to join us in driving awareness and change.

“It's dirty work and sometimes it's hard. You have to be able to lift atleast 50 pounds. But it's nothing I can't handle, especially when I know I need to provide for my children. There's alot of guys who tell me, 'you work much harder than these men'.”
