With a number of companies asking Zwanny do you collect used absorbents and recovered oils, We taken the decision to looking more into depth what would be required to offer this service.

We obtained an upper tier waste carrier Licence for the removal of a large range of waste streams and waste management services throughout mainly The UK but we can look at possible waste oil streams on request outside The UK.

Our main specialized area’s are:

1. Industrial cleaning

We offer a complete range of industrial cleaning services either as one-off projects or regular scheduled services. All our operatives are fully trained to the highest standards and are experienced and qualified in confined space entry and high-pressure jetting work. Our industrial cleaning team can provide effective solutions to de-contamination and cleaning problems which require specialist knowledge. We also provide the additional benefit of waste management expertise so disposal poses no problem either.

Your work will always be carried out to detailed method statements, risk and COSHH assessments. From routine factory cleaning to complex chemical decontamination of buildings, plant and equipment, our approach remains the same, focusing on Health & Safety and the Environment. We can also provide gas free and decontamination certification. Here is just an insight into what we do:-

2.Interceptor Waste Treatment

Regular interceptor maintenance is essential to safeguard businesses that handle and store oil or other hazardous materials – such as petrol station forecourts, major car parks and hauliers’ yards – from on-site flooding and pollution to the environment.

Interceptors are designed to trap harmful substances before they enter the surrounding area, but if they are not serviced and become blocked, apart from the pollution risk, flooding can also be a problem as water cannot run off-site.

Interceptor maintenance, including separator cleaning, is also essential for legislative reasons, providing the information needed for service log scrutiny during environmental inspections. The Environment Agency standard, PPG3 and European standard, EN858-2, both state that separators should be serviced at least twice a year and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

We can clean and maintain your interceptors as part of a regular contract or on a more flexible “Call Off “ basis. As part of this service we also offer:

  • Spill response
  • Interceptor monitoring alarms
  • Filter changes
  • Tank relining
