Septic Tank Services
Easaway operatives are fully qualified and to deal with septic tank blockages, soak away blockages and septic tank emptying. If your house or business isn’t connected to the mains sewer, your sewage will go to one of the following:
A septic tank – an underground tank where the solids sink to the bottom, and the liquid flows out and soaks into the ground
A small sewage treatment plant (also known as a package treatment plant) – a part-mechanical system that treats the liquid, so it’s clean enough to go into a river or stream
A cesspool (also called a cesspit) – a sealed tank that collects the sewage
A non-standard system, e.g., a reed bed or an arch trench system
A septic tank typically comprises of two chambers:
Sewage and wastewater enter the first chamber
Solids are ‘encouraged’ to settle at the bottom where will be decomposed by the harmful bacteria through anaerobic digestion. A crust will also form on the surface, ensuring the perfect environment for the bacteria to survive.
Liquors will flow into the secondary chamber. Smaller suspended particles are again encouraged to settle before the liquors finally exit the tank through to the soak away system into the surrounding environment where any residual impurities are trapped and eliminated in the soil
New Guidelines recommend that Septic Tanks and Cesspool should be emptied once per year.
Needle Removal: Needle Sweeps and disposal
Easaway provide a safe and controlled removal service of needles, syringes and sharp objects which is critical when disposing of this type of waste. If not handled correctly this waste could cause severe infections.
Sharps such as needles, syringes, and blades are often found in bins, toilets and public areas as well as abandoned houses and squats that are used by illegal drug users. The main risk associated with sharps such as needles and syringes is puncture wounds that allow highly infectious blood borne pathogens including Hepatitis B and HIV passed to the individual.
It is therefore imperative that any sightings of sharps are reported immediately and disposed of by a trained professional, disposing of needles, syringes, and hypodermics in a public litter bin or household waste is extremely dangerous.
When removing potentially infectious waste it is essential that the process is carried out safely using the correct needle sweep protection equipment and clothing.
We provide a professional service to deal with a broad range of pests including:
