New Automotive Facilities
All new automotive facilities are required to have and maintain Oil-Water separators. Facilities that discharge "zero" pollutants, where the oils, anti-freeze, and solvents are kept in a contained unit and then pumped out for recycling and or hazardous disposal are not required to have a separator.
Dental facilities may be required to have an Amalgam separator. Even though facilities are not using amalgams any longer there are still patients that may have amalgam fillings that will be disposed of at your facility. We will schedule an appointment to discuss the possibility of this pre-treatment.
