Vaccum Tanker/Sludge Removal

Commercial & industrial sewage collections

We offer an expert septic tank, cesspit and treatment plant emptying service to businesses nationwide. Companies across the country trust us to keep their sewage systems in perfect working order. If your business relies on a septic tank, cesspit or treatment plant rather than mains drainage, you’ll know that it needs to be emptied regularly to keep it working properly.

The frequency with which you’ll need to empty your sewage system depends on the size and type of your tank and the number visitors and employees you tend to have at your site. British Water recommend that commercial sewage systems are emptied at least quarterly, but you may find that more regular collections are required. Many of our customers are situated in rural or remote areas of the country and include hotels, pubs, caravan parks, holiday homes and leisure centres.

Given the diversity of our fleet we are able to provide vehicles to carry out any job you need done.The vehicles have a mix of vacuum and liquid ring suction so that every job is allocated the right machine to load the waste liquid or sludge.

Enviro-Clean operate a fleet of 18 tankers: 12 artic units with capacity to hold 6000 gallons(33m3) and 6 rigid tankers from 2000 – 4000 gallons(9 – 18m3). The waste tankers are used to transport sludge’s, septic tank waste and other waste liquids.

What type of liquids and sludge’s can you carry?
Anything other than hazardous liquids, such as fuels, acids, solvents and toxic waste. This work is contracted to our specialist haz-waste supplier who are experts in their field in carrying out this type of work.

Apart from the above waste streams, all non-haz industrial waste water effluents, process sludge’s, septic tank waste, sewage treatment plant effluent, waste food, digestate, Animal By Product (ABP) waste, drilling muds, lagoon sludge’s, etc.

To be 100% accurate just call us and provide the European Waste Code for the material you need to move and we can give you an instant answer.

How much do your tankers cost ?
That depends on the waste stream and the volume you need to be removed. However, it need not be expensive and we think clever when it comes to your waste disposal. We have excellent connections throughout the UK in the treatment and disposal of waste water and sludge’s, such as drying certain waste water sludge’s and applying them to agricultural and forestry land where permitted.
