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.

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  

Rain Water Harvesting

How can you harvest the rain water?

Did you know that by harvesting rain water you could save up to 50% on the consumption of your household.

How does rain water harvesting work?

Well, it’s very simple… your rain harvesting system takes rainwater from the guttering system of your property, this should be a sealed connection to avoid any debris from entering the rain harvesting tank, the rain water will then pass through a filter system to remove debris from the gutter. Your rain harvester should be located underground and surrounded by concrete. If your system is not protected by concrete then it could cave in or have a root break through the tank. This also happens to septic tanks if not correctly installed.

Rainwater is stored in the tank until you have need of it, there will be a control unit inside your house that will control the water from the harvesting tank. The control unit will be connected to the mains and has sensors inside which will tell whether there is water inside the tank and will choose to use the rainwater if there is enough or switch to mains water supply, this is great for those low rain fall months.

What can I use the rainwater for?

Rainwater can be used for dish washers, washing machines, watering your garden and washing your car.

Need help or information on how we can help you harvest rain water.

What Type of Septic Tanks systems are there?

Septic Tanks

What are the most common Septic Tank Systems?

The first most common Septic Tank System is the gravity system, which uses gravity to move the wet waste into the septic tank and then when separated, Waste water will leave through the Outlet pipe and to the drainfield to be soaked up and become ground water. This is what most domestic homes have.

The second is PDS (Pressure Distribution System). This will have a pump attached to it that will distribute wet waste to the entire drainfield for a more even spread.

Other Alternative Systems are the Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU). This uses oxygen to break down solids, producing clean waste water.

A Mound System is only used when there is minimal soil available for treatment, the drainfield will then be raised above ground level.

A Bio Filter system consists of different layers of sand and gravel placed in a watertight box. Wet Waste is pumped into the bottom of the filter and then works its way up through the sand and gravel out into the soil.

AdvanTex Filter system. The wet waste is filtered through layers of engineering textile materials that is enclosed in a watertight container. This allows treatment of a large amount of wastewater in a small space and is clean enough for subsurface irrigation.

And Finally a Drip Irrigation is a shallow, pressure-dosed system that will equally distribute pre-treated wastewater at a very slow rate over the entire drainfield, preventing flooding of the soil.

Whatever the septic tank system is you can be sure that Tardis Environmental will be able to empty it in professional and speedy service at a low cost.
