Sludge is produced when solids and water mix during the process of water and wastewater treatment. More often than not, sludge will have a much higher solid content when compared to effluent, and therefore it is important that it is treated and managed with the right set of processes.
Should sludge be left, over time it can cause blockages in drainage systems and storage tanks so by ensuring that you have regular sludge removal, you can prevent unnecessary damage to your equipment and ensure that processes can carry on efficiently. What’s more, as with all forms of wastewater, incorrect processes and insufficient treatment can lead to prosecution and heavy fines.

With over 50 years’ experience within the industry, our team has worked in a wide variety of environments, including confined spaces and hazardous environments. We’ll use a variety of techniques to clean all types of tanks to ensure that they are completely free from sludge and other waste residue.
Ensure Correct Disposal
Once sludge has been removed from a tank, it is vitally important that it is disposed of correctly. Sludge is classed as a waste and how it is handled is very tightly regulated. Depending on the industry in which it is created and the processes involved, it could be contaminated with pollutants, limiting the ways in which it can be recycled or disposed of. When you choose to work with our team here at Elliott Environmental Drainage Ltd, we will ensure that any sludge collected from your site is disposed of properly. In fact, we take great pride in our efficient service in the collection and removal of sludge.
Removing Sludge from Confined Spaces
Should your sludge be stored in a storage tank, silo or a sewer, it’ll likely be classed as a confined space. Working in a confined space can potentially be dangerous and requires specialists. Here at Elliott Environmental Drainage Ltd, our team is experienced in working within confined spaces and have all of the right qualifications and training to do so. What’s more, before any confined space work starts, we’ll prepare a thorough formal risk assessment and method statements tailored to the project in hand to ensure that an exact safe system of work is planned out.
