Business Editors

BOISE, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 17, 2003

System to Speed Order to Cash Cycle,

Improve Customer Service and Business Tracking

Stephen Romano, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Ecology Corporation (Nasdaq:ECOL), today announced implementation of the American Ecology Standard Operating Platform ("AESOP"), the Company's new production software.

"American Ecology's new management information system should significantly improve cash flow by speeding our order to cash cycle," Romano stated, adding, "The new production system will also deliver better service to our customers, and improved efficiency through rapid access to critical business information."

The Company implemented the new system at its Beatty, Nevada and Robstown, Texas waste treatment and disposal facilities in May. The Company's Grand View, Idaho treatment and disposal facility will convert to the new operating platform in July of 2003. AESOP operates on a high-availability Oracle/Linux platform, and was entirely built by Company personnel.

"The new production system is fully integrated with our centralized financial system, providing real-time information access that is unprecedented at American Ecology," stated John Cooper, Director of Information Systems. "This not only reduces cost, but will improve decision-making and strengthen our longstanding commitment to providing quality customer service," Cooper concluded.

Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, American Ecology is the oldest radioactive and hazardous waste services Company in the United States.
