When it comes to the commercial aviation industry, SWS Environmental Services understands that wasted time can have a significant financial impact and affect things like customer satisfaction, brand image, and logistics. Landings, departures, taxiing, traffic control, resource allocation and numerous other factors create a fast-paced, logistically challenging environment for airports and airlines.


SWS has been providing a wide range of environmental services to airports, aviation facilities and airlines across the United States for many years. During this time we have developed a thorough understanding of aviation management and operations, allowing for the development of customized, cost-effective solutions for the specific settings and conditions. Our staff is trained and certified in accordance with the DOT and RCRA. We have guided airports and airlines through many events, notably comprehensive spill cleanup, site restoration and general oversight for a wide variety of compliance issues. Environmental services include:

  • Dry Ice Blasting
  • Tank & Pipe Cleaning
  • High Pressure Water Blasting
  • Liquid and Dry Product Vacuuming
  • Facility Decontamination
  • Grit Blasting
  • Roll-Off Trucks and Boxes
  • Air Monitoring

Our Emergency Response teams are well trained and experienced, responding 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. From small hydraulic oil spills to full blown catastrophic events, SWS has the experience, resources, equipment, training and capability to support the aviation industry. Our services have included the cleanup of many unidentifiable chemical classifications for “mystery substances” on airplanes and in cargo holds. We have the people and resources to conduct emergency responses including:

  • Airplane Incidents / Catastrophic Events
  • Jet Fuel Spills

In addition to being experienced environmental services technicians for airport and airlines, we are OSHA certified and frequently conduct safety training classes for airport and airline employees. Training and certification programs for airports and airline employees are conducted onsite or at our Fort Worth, TX training center. Training includes all levels of HAZWOPER training including the 40 hour, 24 hour and 8 hour refresher courses. In our training and certification courses, we also offer confined space certification, self-contained breathing apparatus familiarization and forklift training and certification. Training is provided for EH&S personnel, emergency responders, onsite fire department and waste stream/maintenance personnel.


If your facility or airline requires containment, collection, recycling, and treatment of spent fluid, our management program can be quickly implemented and includes the tools and equipment to help manage associated stormwater draining issues. Compliance with local, state and federal regulations is priority.
