No matter what your sand trap contains, we can handle it

Sandy and gravelly waste: very easy disposal

The contents of sand traps that are classified as mineral and have only small amounts of foreign substances and organic matter are not problematic. This can be the case, for example, with sand washers and swimming pool filters. The downstream sand cleaning systems of biological sewage treatment plants are also generally not hazardous waste in the sense of the AVV waste code. Here, we take over the conscientious emptying and cleaning of the grit traps as well as their removal and disposal.

Residues with foreign substances are specially treated

The grit trap residues, for example in road gullies, can be contaminated to a greater or lesser extent by foreign matter.  Glass and metal parts as well as organic foreign matter are often found in road gullies and commercial/industrial areas. We pump out these sludges with their residues. Depending on the type and composition of the foreign matter, we choose the appropriate disposal method in accordance with the regulations. We provide you with proof of this in the form of a takeover certificate.

Residues containing mineral oil are considered hazardous waste

Mineral residues from light fluid separators are considered hazardous waste. This applies to oil separators from car workshops, petrol stations, car washes and other commercial properties where mineral oils are used. As a certified disposal company, we guarantee environmentally sound disposal using the electronic accompanying evidence procedure, taking into account all official requirements. Read more about this on our page separator systems.

Potentially infectious microorganisms are not a problem

Grit trap residues from wastewater treatment plants sometimes contain a large number of pathogenic microorganisms that can be dangerous to human and animal health. Direct contact with these grit chamber residues poses a risk, as does the inhalation of bioaerosols. In addition, contamination of groundwater must be prevented. With qualified specialist staff and modern technology, we are your strong partner also for the disposal of waste with biological hazards.
