However Clean Harbors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Clean Harbors shares, or, against the total number of tradable Clean Harbors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Clean Harbors's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Clean Harbors shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0187% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Clean Harbors shares, roughly 19 shares are currently held short).
