Holding Tank / Sludge Tank Cleaning & Maintenance

Reco Biotechnology provides comprehensive waste management and disposal services services to include holding tank cleaning and disposal of non-hazardous sludge. Holding tanks can be referred to as sludge tanks as well.

Sludge Tank Cleaning and Disposal

Keeping holding tanks clean improves your facility’s productivity by increasing each tank’s production efficiency plus it is usually necessary to comply with industry and government regulations.

To ensure the highest quality industrial sludge tank cleaning, we utilize our custom-built vacuum trucks, equipped with a pressure washer, allowing us to thoroughly clean the inside of tanks. Our efficient systems limit water usage to help minimize waste generated and lower disposal costs.
