Waste can take on many forms. When you think of waste, you think of that disgusting, messy goo that produces a horrible smell. Well, no one can blame you for that. However, waste takes various forms that you can identify by source.

When you’re dealing with waste, the type of waste doesn’t bother you as much as getting rid of it. But before you call an expert in to handle it, it is important to identify the type of waste to make the removal process easier.

  1. Household Liquid Waste

Household liquid waste, as you can tell by the name, comes from our home. Most of which comes from all the cooking and cleaning that happens in our home. It is inevitable that we release wastewater. However, despite these liquid waste originating from the house, it is not the same. The difference between them affects how they are collected and disposed.

Household liquid waste can be classified into two types:

  • Sullage

Sullage can also be referred to as grey water. This is the waste that comes from the kitchen and bathroom disposal system. This excludes wastewater or excreta from the toilet.

  • Sewage

This is household liquid waste that typically contains sullage and blackwater-wastewater that has excrement.

Most households and residential areas have a system that channels household liquid waste to outlets. In most homes, there are septic tanks that serve as a sewage collection point. When the septic tank is full, the homeowner employs a service to perform clean up services.

  1. Commercial liquid waste

Most commercial centres host a number of restaurants and eateries. Waste from commercial areas differs from household waste because of its magnitude and content such as grease. In commercial areas, there is a specialised equipment that separates wastewater from oil. Grease taps collect the solid material at the bottom, leaving less dense waste material to rise to the surface, allowing relatively clean wastewater to drain to a different compartment.

  1. Industrial waste

This is waste that comes from industrial activities. Industrial waste can be hazardous or non-hazardous. Industrial waste is often discarded into nearby water bodies. It could be acidic, alkaline or lacquers. On a much larger scale, mega operations such as fracking and oil supply can leave major liquid waste as a result of spillage and toxic runoff.

Wastewater from industries has an adverse effect on their surroundings. However, the areas surrounding these industries may need restoration. We handle the clearance of industrial rubbish as a result of wastewater to get the space ready for post-operations use.

  1. Stormwater

This is weather-related waste that is contaminated with pollutants. They are collected from hard surfaces like roads, footpaths, driveways and roofs. Stormwater is not treated like wastewater before they reach water bodies such as rivers, creeks and the ocean. Liquid waste can affect the look and value of any high-traffic area.
