Safety Award


Rineco’s innovative technology differentiates us within the industry. Through this technology, we have maintained a proud tradition of managing a broad range of material and container types.

With a record of competence and fast response, our programs allow us to handle wastes such as solvents, paints, washes, resins, cosmetics, printing inks and refinery waste. But unlike many companies which can process only liquid wastes, Rineco can also process tough sludges and even rock-hard solids. Examples of these solids include: visqueen, towels, gloves, empty containers, rags, filter cartridges, rubber boots, and reacted epoxy resins. Rineco accepts waste material in any DOT approved shipping container, from individual paint cans to roll-offs. Before Rineco accepts any waste, we profile and carefully analyze it to ensure complete compatibility with our processes and with all regulations. It is screened for pesticides, PCB’s, halogen content and much more.


Rineco was founded in 1986 for the purpose of developing regulated waste fuel blending. Through the use of a solid and liquid blending process, Rineco manufactures waste-derived fuel that is used as a secondary fuel source to replace coal and natural gas in cement kilns. Private ownership purchased Production Fuels of Arkansas that year, and changed the name of the company to Rineco.

Rineco is an innovative waste management company centrally located in Haskell, Arkansas, 30 miles southwest of Little Rock. Since its founding, Rineco has established itself as a dynamic leader in the waste management industry servicing over 2,500 large and small quantity generators throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and numerous Fortune 500 companies. Rineco is situated on 273 acres of heavy industrial limited zoned land.

Operating on the “Cradle to Grave” philosophy on which the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act was founded, Rineco ensures waste materials are managed safely and in compliance with all regulations. Under the RCRA Part B permit, our permit allows for storage of 11,896 55-gallon drum equivalents of containers and 240,000 gallons of tank storage capacity. Our process, financial stability and capabilities have allowed us to be a leader in the industry.

Over the years, Rineco has grown into a total waste management company offering all aspects of environmental services and waste management for fuel and non-fuel streams alike. Rineco provides a one source solution for the diverse waste management needs of businesses. We are fully permitted and committed to minimizing your risk and liability by providing safe and efficient waste material handling through a single INNOVATIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT company.
