Liquid waste

Treating liquid waste appropriately and protecting the environment is a complex business

Viridor has over 50 years of experience in managing liquid waste, whether it’s oil, contaminated water, leachate, sludge, sewage, food, beverages, detergents, cosmetics or septic tanks. We have experience working in a range of challenging situations and businesses. Our priority is to provide you with excellent levels of customer service, the best course of treatment for whatever liquid waste you need to dispose of, as well as helping you with the latest legislative and compliance issues.

We have a very technically proficient team who can advise on the best course of treatment for whatever liquid waste you need to dispose of. We have a range of different liquid waste tankers, and, depending on the waste that has been collected, it will go to the nearest specialist facility for processing before a final effluent is safely discharged.

This isn’t simply a process of disposal. The intended by-products of our work include clean water, electricity and soil conditioners.
