Interceptor Waste Disposal
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.
Yellowstone 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
- Sale and insulations of interceptors
