Recycle & Reuse

Leachate Plant

There are several compelling reasons why companies who use water in the course of manufacturing are now turning to wastewater recycling and reuse solutions from Derby City Environmental, but none so impactful as limited and continually dwindling water supplies. It is estimated that more than 20% of global water usage is consumed by industrial manufacturing. Local utilities can no longer guarantee access to plentiful, affordable water. As a result, manufacturers must consider the benefits of removal and the reuse of water already within their process.

Rethinking The Value Proposition

Mud and Water Suspension

It has long been proven the cost of recycling wastewater outweighs the price of water. However, with supplies decreasing and the cost of water reuse technologies lowering, manufacturers can effectively adopt recycle projects that were once too costly to validate. This argument is especially true in situations where substantial treatment is necessary before discharging to the sewer or environment, such that nominal capital investment or increased operational costs due to recycling can be easily justified.

Just a phone call away!

Product Destruction

Manufacturers today operate in a minimal defect environment. It is a rarity that manufacturers are able to sustain a ZERO defect environment. When you have the situation where products are identified to have a defect, no matter how small, do you just throw them away? Consider the consequences of simply discarding them.

If products you make or control fall into the wrong hands, could they do harm to others and consequently to you? 

Let us help you work out a save way to destroy these products and remove the liability and risk of just throwing them away.

Routine septic pumping service is the key to maintaining a healthy commercial septic system. There’s no way to avoid sludge build up, but as with inside cleaning, proper frequency of this service will help keep sludge build up at a manageable level.

If not serviced properly, the sludge builds up in your system and causes expensive and unsightly back-ups inside or overflows outside the building. The first sign of this potential emergency is the slowing down of drains on the inside.
Regular pumping will help avoid many plumbing difficulties and expensive repairs down the road.
Benefits of regular septic pumping service will help to identify potential problems that could be lurking under the surface (literally). Our technicians are trained to spot early warning signs that you would probably not notice. ​ When we service your septic tank we will empty it and legally dispose of the waste. ​ At every service visit, our technicians check the inlet and outlet pipes; measure the sludge and scrum thickness; suggest service frequency changes if necessary; and document this information for you on our work order.
