Waste Management and Recycling: The Importance of Segregation

waste disposal & management

Waste disposable is not a pretty job and neither is it any easier. It requires the presence of trained personnel and good equipment that can handle waste of any kind that is generated in any residential, commercial or industrial area.

When we do our work we are never aware of the mess we create. Neither can any work be done cleanly without any form of wear and tear or waste being generated. However the true efficiency of work roots of how well the waste and excess are managed and disposed. However getting things done yourself is not always a great idea.

Getting a waste disposal firm to do your work for you is not that bad an idea. Why? Because there might be possible waste reduction methods that you could have missed out on. A proper analysis of the waste might tell you how frequently you need to go for drain clearance or how much by-product is generated that can be used for other processes.

There are number of Industrial and residential areas where professional waste disposal can be applied.

Septic Tank/Cesspool Emptying: A septic tank or cesspool is a small sewage treatment system for homes that do not any lines to the main sewage system. It is up to the home owner to pump it out and do maintenance treatment in it. This is to make sure that sludge does not gather and create blockages. Otherwise all disposed waste floods back to the house and makes it condition detrimental to say the least. The cesspool has to be drained properly every 2 years for a residence of five people.

Interceptor waste removal: A very useful and life-saving disposal procedure. It is used on sites where there are oil, petrol or other toxic contaminants entering storm drainage systems. Such pollutants need to be removed regularly from interceptor chamber so that there is no contamination of drainage system. This requires operatives that are fully trained in servicing techniques and safe operating procedures, ensuring that servicing is carried out rapidly with minimal interruption to the operation of the facility.

Bio-treatment plants: These remove solid waste and liquid waste from sewage water and treat them for any possible contamination. These are pretty much there in every sewage treatment plant. Due to the high volume of waste arriving at the plants they require a lot of waste management and fast disposal. Thus a large majority of work for waste disposal and handling experts takes place at Bio-treatment plant.

Sewage Pumps: Most of the sewage pumps being used are submersible sewage pumps. That is why it is very tricky to repair them as you might have guessed the pumps are submerged in the sewage itself. The work will at least require you to retrieve the pumps from the sewage. These are very complex and powerful systems that require repairs by competent people to prevent an upsurge of sewage due to pressure imbalance.

Other places of work would be sewage lines. Working with them is also a precarious job as you do not want the lines to cave in and disrupt the flow. Also this a long and precarious work as you cannot remove line sections with regular blow torches or welding machines. This is because methane gas and carbon monoxide gets released from the sewage and they are extremely inflammable. This requires working with water jet cutters.
