Liquid Waste

Drain Blasters offers a professional, socially responsible & price effective solution as a leader in liquid waste management.

The South African Department of Environmental Affairs have implemented a ban on all classifications of liquid waste being disposed of at landfills. This ban came into effect on 23 August 2019. This ensures individuals, companies and waste service providers rethink the way in which they handle or dispose of their liquid waste.

The implication of this is that all liquid waste would need to be handled by a Specialized Liquid Waste Operator to ensure the “Cradle to Grave” process is adhered to. The onus falls on the waste generator to ensure that their waste is taken to appropriate facilities, such as composting farms, alternative energy sites and water treatment plants.

Drain Blasters strives to further our longstanding environmental vision of Zero Waste to Landfill initiative. This is implemented by finding strategic alternative measures to recycle all liquid waste collected, whether it be recycled for energy production, composting, liquid fertiliser, bio-diesel or treated effluent.

Drain Blasters have successfully formed partnerships with various recycling institutions who provide our company with disposal certificates.

Drain Blasters are proud supporters of the Western Cape in this Liquid Waste Ban initiative and have taken active steps to ensure this is possible.

We are also proud members of the Institute of Waste Management of South Africa (IWMSA) and Organic Recycling Association of South Africa (ORASA), ensuring that we always remain abreast with any new and possible ways of environmentally and responsibly disposing of/or utilizing our country’s waste.

 Types of Liquid Waste:

  • Organic fat, oil & grease/ sludge
  • Sewerage
  • Mechanical oil & grease/ sludge
  • Sand
  • Contaminated water e.g. wash bay sumps

Grease Trap Cleaning

The sewer reticulation system is only geared to accept toilet waste and sink/ basin/ bath waste; whilst the storm water reticulation system is only geared to accept rainwater. Anything else has a negative impact on the system and ultimately causes blockages. The South African Government is clamping down on those who contravene the Wastewater By-Law.

Drain Blasters offers a professional, socially responsible and price effective solution as a leader in liquid waste management.
