Sanitation entrepreneur sees strong growth and big plans


In 2009, Jessie Gonzales founded an environmental remediation and contracting business that would be built on strategic client relationships and a teamwork mentality.

IKON Environmental Solutions, LP (IKON) is headquartered in Houston to meet the growing demand for highly skilled environmental and heavy duty civil contractor service. It also delivered proven safety performance from a project delivery team with over 200 years of combined experience. IKON serves customers throughout Texas, the Gulf Coast region, and anywhere a strategic customer needs help.

IKON offers a full range of environmental remediation services to its customers. He can perform the removal of a basic underground storage tank (UST), but also install a 70 foot deep grout wall or expand a hazardous waste landfill. All projects are executed with the same dedication and determination to make each one a success.

Gonzales said, “We are unique in that we can perform the most basic digging and hauling work, UST removals and property cleanups for the most advanced projects that occur in the remediation industry. of the environment. We strategize to provide cost-effective solutions without sacrificing safety or quality on any project.”

One project IKON is excited about is one it is currently completing, having tendered in 2020, with the Oklahoma State Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ). The Oklahoma Refining Company (ORC) Unit 2 State Superfund project in Cyril, Oklahoma is nearing completion after winning the job based on a competitive bidding in 2020.

The ORC project was a defining project for the company, and it took the entire IKON team to make it work. IKON expanded the on-site hazardous waste landfill both vertically and horizontally to contain materials extracted from restoration sites. He also installed a new cover system over the modified hazardous waste landfill, backfilled excavation areas, stabilized and graded a creek bank, applied stormwater catchments and controls, and installed reclamation systems on the whole site. On this project, IKON dug over 160,000 cubic meters of soil, enough to cover an entire football field, with soil 75 feet high across the entire field. As IKON’s job portfolio continues to expand, recent project completions or awarded projects include:

  • $6.5 million industrial wastewater landfilling project: Competitive and guaranteed offer for a client to increase its capacity for landfilling wastewater from expanding operations.
  • $3.9M Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Relocation Project: Competitive tender for a client to excavate and transport MSW relocation and import clean fill.
  • $3.5 Million Pond Closure Project: Competitive tender for a client to excavate, solidify and haul 100,000 yards of pond sediment for a pond clean-up project.

IKON can effectively and efficiently provide solutions to any business for remediation, stabilization, solidification or waste management projects, regardless of cost or scale. IKON prides itself on winning business and helping provide our customers with cost-effective solutions.
