Oil Interceptor Emptying and Cleaning

Interceptor Emptying & Cleaning

Regular interceptor emptying and cleaning is an important part of keeping your site running efficiently. It also helps avoid costly downtime from the consequences of pollution from surface water or drainage problems.

In the event of any spillages or overflows, we can also provide a 24/7 emergency call-out service. Call us to talk to one of our team who will provide support and advice for interceptor cleaning.

You can find interceptor tanks at sites where vehicles may leak fuel and oil onto the ground. This includes; fire stations, supermarkets, garage forecourts, car parks, car wash bays, bus depots and industrial yards where vehicle washing takes place.

Interceptors (also known as oil, grease and water traps or separators) are fitted to your drainage system. They separate wastewater from oil, silt, dirt and any other harmful contaminants to prevent pollution to the local watercourse. The separated waste will remain in a chamber of the interceptor tank for emptying.

Unless you arrange for regular oily water interceptor emptying, over time the run-off from vehicle washing activities will build up.
