Secondary Containment System Pumping and Disposal

Reco Biotechnology provides non-hazardous industrial waste disposal services to various industries in Central Virginia since 1998. In addition to clarifier, sump and secondary containment system pumping, our services include a wide range of vacuum truck pumping and cleaning services, wastewater and sludge treatment, full service soil remediation, as well as waste and fuel drum processing. We have the equipment and manpower to execute proper and safe disposal of non-hazardous industrial waste.

Clarifier, Sump and Secondary Containment System Pumping

Clarifier, Sump and other Secondary Containment Systems are built to contain hazardous and non-hazardous industrial waste. These wastes often contain pollutants that must be removed, and tanks should be maintained regularly by a team of trained professionals. By regulation the waste must be disposed of properly to ensure that the pollutants are not discharged into public waterways.

Clarifier tanks are used in wastewater treatment processes – to remove solids and biological growth from water. These are generally either circular or rectangular, based on industrial requirements, and are fitted with scrapper blades that move the pollutants.

Sump pits are generally constructed beneath basements to prevent flooding. They have an automated sump pump which transfers excess water away from the low point. Sump pits need to be maintained, kept free of solids and debris. Our vacuum trucks can help remove this material for effective sump pump operation.

Secondary Containment Systems, also known as “spill containment systems” are used in industries dealing in hazardous and non-hazardous material. These tanks or systems function as an added security measure to avoid spilling of industrial waste into the environment.

Pumping and Disposal: Clarifier, Sump and Secondary Containment Systems

Reco Biotechnology provides pumping and disposal of clarifier, sump and other secondary containment systems for non-hazardous waste. Our vacuum trucks have powerful pumps to extract the waste material and safely transport it to our treatment facility. Our custom-built vacuum trucks fitted, with pressure washers, are used to clean the containment system thoroughly. Once the clarifier, sump or secondary containment tank is emptied and cleaned, the trucks transport the industrial waste to our recycling center in Richmond, VA.

Reco Biotechnology has experienced and certified staff, and together with latest, technologically advanced equipment, we have made pumping and disposal of waste from clarifier, sump and secondary containment tank safe and convenient.
