The US Ecology Michigan Disposal Waste Treatment Plant (MDWTP) is a hazardous waste storage and treatment facility located at 49350 North I-94 Service Drive in Belleville, Michigan (Site).  The Site was first established in January 1974, before hazardous waste handling and disposal operations were regulated under state or federal law. The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) previously licensed the Site for the management of hazardous wastes in 1999 and 2007, under the operation and ownership control of the Environmental Quality Company. In 2009, the Environmental Quality Company transferred ownership and operational control of the Site to US Ecology, Inc. Since 2009, the Site has remained under the control of US Ecology.

The Site’s hazardous waste operating license issued by EGLE specifies the hazardous waste activities that MDWTP can perform.  The federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended, its rules, and the corresponding state hazardous waste regulations specify how the facility must operate to protect human health and the environment. They also identify the authorities that EGLE’s, Materials Management Division (MMD), has in licensing and overseeing the Site’s hazardous waste operations.
