Waste Tanks for Glastonbury

23 waste tanks supplied to Glastonbury Festival

Custom Waste Tank

 

 

 

 

This year we have been asked again to supply Glastonbury Festival 23 waste tanks

Because we fabricate our own tanks from 4mm steel and have our own fabricator. This will enable us to fabricate any size or any shape waste tank you will need for your site or festival.

Why go steel over plastic for your waste tank

The benefits of a steel waste tank is that a steel tank is highly durable, can be moved around site without causing much damage to the tank, will still operate in cold or hot weather without cracking and most importantly you can stack your welfare or cabin unit on top of the tank, which will create space at your festival or construction site.

Have a waste tank to suit your site needs

As we fabricate our own tanks, we can fabricate a tank to suit your needs. We came create any shape and size tank with lots of additional features than your standard waste tank.

Flood Warning!

Need a Fast Response to Flooding!

If you’re in a high-risk flood area, then Tardis Environmental can help weather you’re a domestic or construction customer.

Flooded Car Park

The met office has issued out warnings and alerts for known areas that are at risk of flooding. So what can we do to help prevent or even minimize damage caused by flooding?

We have a large fleet of vacuum tankers that can take large amounts of wet wastewater to help alleviate possible damage caused be flooding. Some of our tankers can also have a high vol jet vac that can clean your drains from leafs and debris that may slow the rate the floodwater gets drained.

Tardis Environmental also has industrial water pumps that can move the wastewater from a flooded area to a drain or river that is not flooded.

The WX10 and WH20 water pumps are useful for small jobs like filling small water tanks and increasing water pressure.

The WB20 and WB30 are great for moving large amounts of water with small debris within the water.

Now the WT20 is probably the best bet to move waste water as it can handle large amounts of water and large sized debris up to 24mm.

No it is not illegal to install a product that is not WRAS, but you may need to have proof or prove the compliance in other ways.

Tardis Recycling

Tardis Going Further to Help Protect the Environment

Tardis spend most of our time taking other companies wet waste and have to dispose of it in a correct manner.

But what happens to all our waste at our offices around the UK. Well here at the head office in Walsall, we have just purchased some new bins so we can help the environment by recycling better.

We now have bins for general waste like crisp packets and other rubbish that cannot be recycled. Our green bin will hold all our glass and drink cans as these can be recycled and be used again. The blue bins will be recycling all our paper we use, apart from cardboard which will be placed in the red bin.

Not only do we recycle our paper, but if we print on one side and don’t need the paper anymore we place it back in the print and print on the other side as this will reduce our need for paper, which in turn will mean less trees being cut day.

Our services include:- Septic tank emptying, cesspool/cesspit emptying, gully sucking, interceptor emptying, grease trap, hazardous waste removal, portable toilet hire, portable toilet servicing, water bowser hire and up to 30,000 litre tanker trailer hire with fresh clean water (not suitable for drinking) or call our freephone number on 0800 731 0589

Problems with Septic Tank Emptying

Incorrectly Installed Septic Tank

As you know Tardis Environmental can perform a septic tank emptying service and will take 1000 gallons of septic tank waste per septic tank emptying service. So what happens when you have two 500 gallon septic tanks that are full and are in need of a tank emptying service?

Emptying Septic tank

Septic Tank Refilling with rain water

 

 

 

 

 

Normally we would come and empty both tanks as they both add up to 1000 gallons. But when we went out to empty the two tanks at the site, we found that they were not installed correctly in to the ground as both waste tanks have the same problem.

The problem with the two tanks was they were not properly sealed to stop rain and storm water from creating a layer of water above the tank.

When we started to empty the two tanks and was getting close to our 1000 gallon limit we noticed the two tanks were still not empty. That’s when the storm and drain water started to refill the empty septic tank.

Emptying Septic Tank Again

We then contacted the customer and told them the problem with the two tanks, who then instructed us to continue to empty the two tank. After we emptied both septic tanks we measured how much wet waste we have taken from the two tanks which where ment to hold a 1000 gallons between them, we calculated that we took 1800 gallons of wet waste. Because the septic tanks were not sealed correctly a further 800 gallons needed to be taken of which was rain water.

So make sure your septic tank is correctly installed.

Custom Waste Tanks

Fabricated Waste Tank to Suit You

Did you know that Tardis Environmental can fabricate a waste tank to suit you and your site needs. As we are able to fabricate our own waste tanks, we are able to build waste tanks to different shapes and sizes.

Custom Waste Tank

 

We have a current project where we were asked to fabricate two large waste tanks that needed to hold approx. 17,000 litres each. We were also instructed to add some special features like a digital overflow alarm system that would let you know when the tank is nearing its capacity.

The two waste tanks will also be connected by a 6” waste pipe so when the first tank is full it will then begin to fill the second tank. Two submersible pumps will help fill the second waste tank.

Pipe Connections

Vent Waste Tank

Both waste tanks will have two 1” vents. The tanks will also be fitted with a safety hatch due to the massive size of the waste tanks.

We also have pre-made waste tanks for hire, ranges include tanks with the capacity to hold 50 litres, 500 litres, 1,000 and 1,500 litres other sizes are available upon request.

Call our friendly hire desk team who will assist you further on the hire or purchase of our waste tanks or just give them a call for more information. Freephone 0800 731 0589  

Septic Tank Emptying

Septic Tank EmptyingWhat can a Vacuum Tanker Empty?

We get calls from all over the UK requesting a septic tank emptying service. But not a lot of people know that a Vacuum tanker can do a lot more than just suck up wet waste from a septic tank.

Some of our tanker tanks are split into 2 sections. Here is an example, one of our 26ton Vacuum tankers can hold 3000 gallons of liquid 2500 gallons of this liquid will be waste from an septic tank emptying service and the other 500 gallons is for fresh clean water to refill our Tardis water bowsers.

Not only can our tankers hold fresh water (Not for Drinking), they can also come with added attachments that can perform jobs like a wash down after a septic tank emptying service to leave the septic tank nice and clean or some of our tanker have a pressure washer lance to help remove hard debris that is stuck. The pressure washing lance is normally used for pumping stations.

There are also other wet waste jobs our vacuum tankers can remove.

Our vacuum tankers can remove wet waste from cesspit/cesspools, portable toilets, welfare units, storm drains and most hazardous waste.
