Personal waste containment systems or “honey wagons” as they are sometimes called in the pump industry have come along way in just the last few years. In response to the soaring costs of vac truck services, everyone from those needing septic pumping, waste oil pumping and used vegetable oil transfer have found an economical alternative in owning a personal waste containment systems. Lance from Medina, TX highlights many of the inquiries we get for such applications:
“We have about 30 sites in an oilfield with septic systems plus oil slurry residuals to pump. We no longer wish to use our local vac truck services as the costs have become prohibitive and we have an EPA approved dumpsite close to the site. Please provide a proposal on a suitable waste containment system for our needs as well as a pump that can handle thicker liquids.” Thank you – Lance M. Medina, Texas
Well Lance, In the video above one of Wastecorp’s pump experts talks about an ideal system for industrial waste containment, the HW-1600. This includes a 1635 gallon tank and a corrosion resistant galvanized deck and trailer frame. The benefit here is that if you are storing your pump system outside or frequently use it in inclement weather, you will reduce chances for corrosion. The best part is the pumps you can select include patented Mud Sucker Diaphragm pump technology. Mud Sucker’s are available in several connection sizes and in solids handling models for thicker oil slurries and normal duty flapper valve models. Generally, a personal waste containment system will pay for itself within a calendar year when compared to using a vac truck service. Obviously this depends on the amount of pump outs you do and what size you select, but overall, the personal waste containment system is an excellent investment.

Technology giants like HP, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon may not seem like the typical consumers of pumps for process wastewater, back wash and cooling processes. But Wastecorp is seeing much more pump inquiry activity from contractors and high tech end users in California’s Silicon Valley, New York’s Silicon Alley and data centers across the country.
A case in point is Wastecorp’s recent project with an HP research facility in Colorado, USA. We worked with a local contractor to provide Continue reading
Trash pump stations for expanding wastewater treatment plants are an effective way to transfer secondary sludge and raw effluent. Wastecorp recently designed and manufactured a four pump solution for an expanding community near Canada’s capital (see the video below). These trash pumps feature a 3” connection and each pump is capable of transferring 740 GPM.
These pumps feature several add on options for ease of maintenance and pump protection in the event of a closed valve or blockage in the line. First, the Trash Flow pumps were outfitted with spring loaded check valves and drain kit assemblies to reduce pump downtime during maintenance. The engineering specification called for Ashcroft pressure gauges and tungsten carbide mechanical seals for improved life cycles.

Did you ever consider starting a food type grease or waste oil collection service? Did you ever wonder what kind of equipment you would need to start to become a “greaser”? The tough economy has enabled many creative local entrepreneurs to start their own business.
There are a few factors to consider when beginning this type of business: First, consider what kind of oil collection business you want to start – there is the mobile collection system where you collect the waste oil using a truck mounted pump out and temporary storage tank. You may also consider developing a treatment facility to transfer fats, oil and grease to offer customers the full service oil collection business. Continue reading
