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
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?
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.
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.

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.
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.
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
