Alum Sludge Hauling
Alum sludge is a biproduct from water treatment plants. It’s created during the filtration process required to remove color and other harmful impurities. It is often stored in large alum lagoons or ponds with a solid content of roughly 5%. This material can also be spread on a drying bed where it can later be excavated at a much higher % of solid so that it can be landfilled. At EarthCare we have the capability to handle and dispose of both waste streams. We have high tech lagoon pumps that are utilized for lagoons or ponds ranging in size from 20,000-500,000 gallons. We also utilize our own cable dredge capable of handling multi-million gallon projects.
Dry Cake Sludge Hauling
Dry sludge or cake sludge is the bi-product produced by sewer plants after the water is extracted. There are many types of systems out there that will do this and no matter what type of process being utilized EarthCare has the ability to transport and dispose of this material. We have developed excellent relationships with landfills and beneficial reuse facilities allowing us to find the right disposal options to meet your needs.
Leachate is the biproduct generated at landfills. EarthCare has vast knowledge in the collection, transportation, and disposal of this material. We also specialize in helping to keep methane collection lines under the landfill open and operating properly.
