Liquid Waste

What is Liquid Waste?

Liquid wastes are any liquids that cannot be released into the storm water system, and require either chemical treatment or treated through our solidification process before diposal.

Some forms of liquid waste we primarily deal with are:

  • Water Pollution
  • Hydrocarbon Liquids
  • Sludges
  • Industrial Liquids and runoff

We offer a complete waste disposal service.

From hazardous waste disposal to chemical, liquid and general waste disposal & destruction, we offer a full range of disposal services in Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne.

Reliable service at competitive rates.

We're there when you need us, ensuring your disposal needs are met promptly and reliably without breaking your budget.

No long-term contracts. As needed service.

We can service your needs one job at a time or via mutually convenient agreements, but we won't lock you into long-term contracts. Leave at any time.

Liquid Waste

Water pollution (or aquatic pollution)

Or contamination of any liquid waste, usually as a result of human activities, it will negatively affects its use.

Water bodies include lakes, rivers, oceans, reservoirs and groundwater.

Water pollution can be attributed to one of four sources: sewage discharges, industrial activities, agricultural activities, and urban runoff including stormwater.

It can be grouped into surface water pollution either fresh water pollution or marine pollution or groundwater pollution. Water pollution can also lead to water-borne diseases for people using polluted water for drinking, bathing, washing or irrigation.

Sources of water pollution are either point sources or non-point sources. Point sources have one identifiable cause, such as a storm drain, a wastewater treatment plant or an oil spill.

Other sources of Water Pollution

Non-point sources are more diffuse, such as agricultural runoff. Pollution is the result of the cumulative effect over time. Pollution may take the form of toxic substances e.g., oil, metals, plastics, pesticides, persistent organic pollutants, industrial waste products, stressful conditions (e.g., changes of pH, hypoxia or anoxia, increased temperatures, excessive turbidity, unpleasant taste or odour, and changes of salinity), or pathogenic organisms.

Contaminants may include organic and inorganic substances. Heat can also be a pollutant, and this is called thermal pollution. A common cause of thermal pollution is the use of water as a coolant by power plants and industrial manufacturers.

Control of water pollution requires appropriate infrastructure and management plans as well as EPA legislation. Technology solutions can include improving sanitation, sewage treatment, industrial wastewater treatment, agricultural wastewater treatment, erosion control, sediment control and control of urban runoff ,including stormwater management. Effective control of urban runoff includes reducing speed and quantity of flow.
