Clean Earth, Inc., Announces Acquisition of Phoenix Soil, LLC in Plainville, Connecticut

Hatboro, PA; May 11, 2016: Clean Earth, Inc. announced today the acquisition of privately owned
Phoenix Soil, LLC located in Plainville, Connecticut. This acquisition will mark Clean Earth’s fifteenth
fixed-based location in the United States. This expansion into the New England market will provide
Clean Earth the opportunity to geographically expand soil recycling throughout the Northeast with a
strong presence in the New England markets.

Chris Dods, Clean Earth President & CEO states, “The future is exciting for us. Over the past 5 years
we have recycled 18.5 million tons of soil alone, and our mission remains the same – to recycle and
reuse waste material that would otherwise go into landfills. The addition of Phoenix Soil supports our
plan for smart growth and a sustainable future. We are particularly excited by the addition of Dave
Green to our team. Dave founded Phoenix and has built a tight knit team of high performers that
will spark new ideas and growth for the entire enterprise.”

Phoenix Soil, now a Clean Earth Company, is a state-of-the-art thermal treatment facility processing
non-hazardous petroleum-contaminated soils. Phoenix Soil, LLC has operated a low temperature
thermal desorption manufacturing facility in Connecticut since 1993 and was the first treatment facility
to obtain a Connecticut DEEP Beneficial Use Determination Permit allowing treated soil to be classified
as clean fill throughout Connecticut.

Dave Green, now Chief Science Officer for Clean Earth stated, “I am thrilled to be a part of Clean
Earth, for both me and the team I have built over the past 20 plus years. Phoenix has done well
because of our people and now as a part of a bigger organization we will be able to project what
we have learned across a broader geography and bigger team.”

Clean Earth owns and operates fifteen (15) facilities throughout the northeast with treatment platforms
that consist of bioremediation, chemical fixation of RCRA hazardous waste, aerosols and consumer
commodities, thermal desorption, aggregate production, drill cuttings and pipeline cuttings, and
stabilization of dredged material. In 2015, Clean Earth recycled approximately 3.5 million tons of soil
derived from various construction sites throughout the East Coast.
