Concrete Wastewater's Harmful Effects

Concrete Wastewater's Harmful Effects

Concrete wastewater from washing out concrete trucks and pumps presents a very large problem for regional watersheds. Concrete wastewater has a pH level of 12; plant life survives at 6.5, and most of the time the truck drivers wash this caustic water directly on the ground or use other inferior containment systems.

Current Practices Commonly Fail

Current Practices Commonly Fail

For years people have used plastic lined boxes or holes dug into the ground with a hay bale perimeter and lined with sheets of plastic. Both of these systems commonly fail due to holes in the plastic or rain water filling them and overflowing into the rivers and streams we are trying to protect.

In today’s fast paced and cut throat construction industry, people have lost site of the environmental issues. Washout Solutions offers a proven solution for SWPPP compliance and can also help contribute to achieving LEED® credits on your next project.

Washout Solutions Water Tight Bins

Washout Solutions Water Tight Bins

Washout Solutions is the ONLY portable watertight wastewater containment service in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. Washout Solutions' watertight bin controls, captures and contains ALL of the caustic wastewater and washout material from concrete trucks and pumps, reducing any possibility of an illegal discharge and thus protecting the clients and the environment.

Concrete Washout Is Simple

Once the bin is set in place, the concrete trucks can washout directly in the bin.Washout Solutions is also considered the Best Available Technology (BAT) and Best Management Practice (BMP) for concrete washout, wastewater containment, and recycling.

Containers Can Hold Up To 40 Trucks Worth of Washout

Containers Can Hold Up To 40 Trucks Worth of Waste

Washout containers can hold 5.5 cubic yards, which is the equivalent of 38 ready-mix trucks and 2 pump trucks or 350 cubic yards of poured concrete. When the bins are full, call for a pick up, and we do the rest.

Ramp or Pull-Up Containers

Ramp or Pull Up Containers

Washout containers have easy access ramps - making it easy for pump trucks to use. Multiple concrete trucks can also pull up to the sides of the containers to washout.

Recycling of Solid and Liquid Waste

Recycling of Solid and Liquid Waste

No water is left or dumped on site and we are responsible of disposing of the waste water and solid concrete material. The solid concrete waste is weighed and can contribute to LEED® Materials and Resources credits on a project seeking LEED® certification. The water can be recovered, treated, and used for irrigation or other non potable uses.
