Autumn “leaves” little to the imagination

1-leaf

Did we imagine that, just there out the corner of our eye, was that really a leaf falling from the trees already.  What happened to summer ?

Indeed, it was. The September song has begun, we’ll soon be wading through autumn’s golden gown unless there’s a Tardis road sweeper on the scene that is.

OK, so enough with the golden gown stuff…   Autumn leaves can and do cause problems especially when they get wet and start to decompose, making a gooey mulch that can be dangerously slippery on roads and paths and does a good job of blocking drains.

Luckily, our stalwart road sweeper fleet can take care of all kinds of debris that needs cleaning away. Leaves, mud litter.

We also have sweepers with a gully arm which can take care of blocked drains and manholes .

We sweep car parks, construction sites, quarry roads and entrances and of course streets and avenues where those pesky autumn leaves just keep piling up.

If you’re in need of a sweeper, then just call one free number nationwide, chat with us detailing your need and where you want us to appear and leave the rest to us.

Here’s a strictly autumnal little film showing one of our machines cleaning up, but of course we’re a 365 days a year operation in all aspects of our work.

Gully Emptying with Tardis

It’s that gully emptying time of year again.

Autumn is now in full swing, the leaves are turning from green to autumnal colours and falling off the trees. Even though the autumn leaves are pretty, mixed with the rain water from the typical British wet weather, without prior planning this could then result in havoc. With building site road gullies, car park and street gullies becoming blocked.

If the gully becomes blocked it can then cause flash floods in heavy rain situations as the rain water will not be able to be drained away properly. Gullies are commonly found in a car park locations, if they become blocked this could lead to you being left with a flooded car park. This could then force you to close the car park, until the matter is resolved.

This week at Tardis Environmental we were called out to a company with a flooded car park. See below for the not very pretty pictures of the event. This is a scary example of how car parks can be affected when the gullies become blocked. Unfortunately for this company, that car in the middle was of a visitor!

To avoid something similar happening to your car park and to the high insurance costs associated with this, planning ahead is key. It is advisable to ensure gully emptying is regularly maintained to avoid such circumstances.

Here at Tardis Environmental our gully suckers are specialised tankers. Our tankers have suction specialised gear that will take up the wet waste from hollows and spaces and then take the wet waste and carry it to a suitable disposal point. Specific suction power is often needed for gully emptying as the material being removed can contain bulky debris such as branches and stones.
