Our Non-Hazardous Waste Treatment Plant
The HK Solutions Group pretreatment plant is located in Des Moines, Iowa. We use this facility for wastewater treatment and solid waste processing.
How do wastewater treatment plants work?
Wastewater treatment plants separate water and waste so that water can return to the sanitary sewer system and waste materials can be disposed of or recycled.
The waste treatment process begins with a complete waste profile and a treatability analysis. Following approval of the waste stream, we arrange transportation and deliver the material to our facilities. Once the waste arrives at the HK treatment plant, we continue the wastewater treatment process.
Wastewater Treatment Process
- We remove any oil and solids from the waste stream. Many of these materials can be recycled for use in asphalt production.
- We discharge treated water to the sanitary sewer system en route to local publicly owned treatment works facilities.
What are your waste treatment capabilities?
HK is a multiple waste stream centralized waste treatment (CWT) facility which accepts waste in more than one CWT subcategory. Our facility is equipped for metals treatment and recovery as well as oils treatment and recovery. We process metal and oil waste from manufacturing plants, processing facilities and other commercial and industrial operations.

- Used oils

Prior to accepting waste at the HK Solutions Group Pretreatment Plant, our team will review each waste stream profile to determine its chemical nature, content and optimal treatment method. Before materials can be processed, a representative sample is collected and submitted to a certified laboratory for analysis. This analysis ensures the material is within our treatment capabilities.
Once approved, we schedule equipment and personnel to collect the material from your facility. If laboratory analysis reveals waste streams outside of our waste treatment capabilities, we can still help your team make appropriate waste disposal arrangements.
