Who Is CGE

Common Ground Environmental, Inc. (CGE) began in 2003 by environmental remediation and waste management consultants. Collectively these consultants had over 50 years of experience in the industrial and environmental service industry, specializing in onsite environmental fieldwork and waste management / waste related activities.

In 2017, Michael Propst, an employee of 6 years who mentored under the owners, purchased the company and has continued to offer their legacy services since then. Mr. Propst, now President of CGE, has continued access to prior owner, Mr. Chambless, as an as-needed consultant.

Today CGE specializes in waste removal services  and industrial cleaning to markets, such as; Fortune 500 Companies, Government Agencies, Hazardous Waste Transporters & Generators, Manufacturing and Distribution Centers, Medical Laboratories/ Clinics and Local/ Regional Businesses.
