Our Environment

Our Commitment to Being Green
Keeping the environment clean is more than being “green”; it’s the right thing to do. Our ability to operate KKMI facilities and keep things “ship shape” is no simple matter. Over the course of every day we deal with numerous hazardous materials in many different forms and applications. To manage these materials correctly and lawfully is not inexpensive. We spend many thousands of dollars each year maintaining our facilities and following our award-winning Best Management Practices to remain in compliance with regulatory requirements.

To ensure our ability to live up to these high standards, we ask our clients to participate through our 3% Environmental Fee. KKMI does not use this as a “profit center”; we spend every penny collected on environmentally associated expenses. For a sample of the different fees we must pay and agencies we report to, see below.

We thank you for your support in protecting our Bay, which we all cherish and enjoy.

• Environmental Protection Agency, Federal & State
