Pumper Chooses ALAR For Grease Trap Solution

PUMPERS SEEK CREATIVE SOLUTIONS WHEN GOVERNMENTS IMPOSE EVER-TIGHTER REQUIREMENT FOR WASTE DISPOSAL
Kendall Todd owns Atlantic Pit Service, Inc. and his struggle was what to do with grease trap waste, which isn’t allowed to be land applied in his home state of Georgia.
When all disposal factors were weighed, controlling costs ultimately meant building his own treatment facility. “We started looking for property, and then had to go through the whole permitting process, which took about a year.” In another year, the facility was ready for business. It includes two Auto-Vac® rotary water vacuum systems (ALAR Engineering Corp.)—to remove 90 to 95 percent of the liquid from the septage and grease waste. The dewatered cake is trucked to a landfill, and the clarified effluent is recycled back into the plant for use in equipment prep/cleanup and other processes.
