Commercial Sanitation: Liquid Wastes for Professional Removal

The waste materials produced in commercial environments are diverse, depending on the type of operation. It is important to manage these materials responsibly to avoid creating hazards for employees and clients and to prevent contamination of the environment. One of the important waste categories that must be handled with care in your start-up commercial premises is liquid waste. As implied, this refers to bulk waste that has low solid content and requires safe disposal.

You should not attempt to handle liquid waste like regular refuse in your new operation. Basically, it cannot be poured into landfills like other materials because it can reduce stability of the existing refuse, create unfavourable odours and increase the volume of the materials to be treated. Therefore, you will require a specialist removalist to ensure that the liquid is treated properly before release into designated areas. Here are the liquid waste materials to consider for professional removal.

Septic Tank Waste

The septic system is an important asset for wastewater treatment if you are setting up your business in an area without access to council sewage network. Unfortunately, you will need to regularly clean out the tank to remove the sludge produced after breakdown of the waste. This task will eliminate the risk of premature failure of the septic system and occurrence of unfavourable odours within your property. In addition, an overly filled septic tank poses the risk of contamination in your business. This can lead to diverse bacterial, parasitic and viral diseases. You should engage liquid waste removal service for the tank clean-up. The frequency of the work should depend on the size of tank and the manufacturer's recommendations.

Grease Trap Content

The grease trap or interceptor is an important device in your commercial plumbing if you are in the food production industry. The component will prevent the entry of oil and fats into the normal wastewater channels. This is important because grease cannot be broken down easily like other waste materials, and this will compromise the efficiency of the treatment systems. Ideally, you should install an in-ground tank to collect the grease for your potentially large operation to enable effective removal of this liquid waste.

Oily Water

Oily water is a hazardous liquid waste that can cause extensive problems when released to the environment. For instance, oily water in rivers will block plant pores and fish gills if the liquid flows into rivers. This water will be generated if your operation will utilise a lot of industrial machinery, so budget for removal or purchase treatment equipment.

Contract a liquid waste removal service to handle these refuse from your business.
