Safety-Kleen Sells Chicago and Hebron Plants



    PLANO, Texas, March 24 /CNW/ -- Safety-Kleen Systems, Inc., a leading
North American provider of environmental services and industrial solutions,
announced the sale of its solvent recycling facilities in Chicago, IL, and
Hebron, OH, to Clean Harbors for $12.5 million in cash, as well as the
assumption of approximately $3 million in environmental liabilities.
    "Although our strategic plan is to pursue acquisitions to accelerate our
growth, realize operating synergies and enhance our market position, selling
off non-core or underutilized assets will also help us realize operating
synergies," said Frederick J. Florjancic, CEO and president of Safety-Kleen.
"We are confident that our acquisition and divestiture activities better
position us for both the near and long-term outlook."
    Florjancic also said that Safety-Kleen will continue to grow its oil
services, industrial cleaning and environmental services, both organically and
by acquisitions.
