If you have any commercial wastewater or commercial sewage that needs disposing, then you will need to dispose of it correctly. Examples of commercial wastewater include rainwater, dairy washings, leachate and brewery waste. All commercial wastewater and sewage need to be taken to a treatment plant where it is properly treated and the toxins are removed from it. Due to its liquid nature commercial wastewater can only be transported in a tanker lorry. Tanker Lorries vary in size from 700 gallons of capacity to 6,000gallons.
If you have any commercial wastewater then call a commercial wastewater service company who will arrange to send a suitably sized tanker which will collect the waste and take it to a treatment plant to be disposed of in a compliant manner. As climate change increases the incidence of storms and heavy rain there is increased risk of large downpours falling on your site which if you don’t have storm drains, can lead to flooding and a build-up of commercial wastewater.
A recent case study at Andersons Waste Management involved a national house builder who is currently building 30 houses near Chippenham https://www.wainhomes.co.uk/developments/the-bluebells/. The customer has built a lot of the houses already but there are still lots to be built. But some of the vital infrastructure like the storm drains and house drains are not connected to the relevant mains sewers just yet. This means that all the commercial wastewater on site (rainwater, shower water, dishwasher water, washing machine water, sewage etc) has to be collected in tanks onsite and then taken away to be treated as it is not allowed to enter the water course.
The customer called the Andersons Waste Management office and told us about the problem and asked us for a solution. After hearing all the details and taking samples of the commercial wastewater we came up with a solution. We arranged to send a 3,000-gallon tanker to their site twice a week to take away the commercial wastewater in their tank. When it rains heavily the tanker goes in for an extra visit to ensure the customer is kept happy. The tanker driver then takes the commercial wastewater to a local waste treatment plant where it is properly treated and the toxins are removed. Once the water has been fully treated the pure and clean water is released back into the watercourse. The result of this is that the house builder has a compliant site that is not waterlogged with rainwater, no commercial wastewater is getting into the watercourse and the sewage from the houses is being taken away and treated properly. The solution detailed above helps to keep our rivers, streams and wildlife safe from commercial wastewater.

All businesses have commercial waste disposal responsibilities that are unavoidable and strictly enforced by law. No commercial wastewater or sewage is allowed into the water course so any business that produces such waste is obliged to dispose of it in a compliant manner. Most businesses are connected to the mains sewer system which can take care of a lot of wastes such as sewage but there are lots of businesses and venues that are not on the sewer network and therefore they have commercial waste disposal responsibilities.
There are many businesses that have commercial waste disposal responsibilities, a prime example of this is the events industry which produces a lot of commercial waste that requires disposal. This is because so many events use a greenfield site that has no mains drainage which leaves the event organiser with large commercial waste disposal responsibilities. Events like flower shows, car shows, agricultural shows and festivals have thousands of people on site for several days using temporary infrastructure- all of which needs to be disposed of responsibly. This waste can be toilet waste, catering waste, Kitchen waste, water-feature waste etc. It is the responsibility of the event organiser to dispose of all this waste in a compliant manner.
An example of this is Bath Racecourse https://www.bath-racecourse.co.uk/which has no mains drainage on site. The venue hosts horse racing, Christmas parties, weddings, charitable events, Covid vaccine centre and many other types of events. This means that at each event, their customers produce an enormous amount of commercial waste which needs to be disposed of responsibly. They called up Andersons Waste management to ask us if we could help. All their sewage and commercial waste water goes into large holding tanks on site which need emptying after each event to prevent them from overflowing and polluting the surrounding areas and water course. After finding out all the information and the location of all their tanks we arranged to send in two artic tankers on the days after their events to remove up to 12,000 gallons of waste at a time.If the event is smaller and therefore produces less waste then we will often send a smaller tanker which will reduce the price for the customer.
We then take this waste to the Andersons Waste Management wastewater treatment facility where it is properly treated and disposed of. This process ensures that the racecourse doesn’t become waterlogged, the hospitality areas have capacity in their storage tanks and the venue is compliant with the EnvironmentAgency.
At Andersons Waste Management we have a wide range of tankers that we send to different customers to ensure we can take care of all their commercial waste disposal responsibilities. The smallest is a 2,000-gallon tanker and the largest is 6,000-gallon articulated tanker. All our tankers and drivers are fully compliant and can take care of all your commercial waste disposal responsibilities. We can send tankers during the day or at night if it makes your event run more smoothly.
All sewage in the UK legally has to go to a commercial sewage treatment plant where it is treated and then the clean water returns to the watercourse. Sewage has all sorts of toxins in that need to be removed from the water before it can be released; this happens in a commercial sewage treatment plant. The sewage arrives at the treatment plant via the nationwide sewer infrastructure or via a liquid waste haulier.
It is a place that sewage and other forms of wet waste goes to in order to be made clean. Most of the commercial sewage treatment plants in the UK are owned by the water companies like Wessex Water https://www.wessexwater.co.uk/ , Thames Water https://www.thameswater.co.uk/ , Severn Trent https://www.stwater.co.uk/ etc. These water utility companies are regulated by the Environment Agency who give them permits to operate. Commercial sewage treatment plants require a large geographical footprint and cost hundreds of millions of pounds to build as well as a lot of ongoing management and maintenance costs.
Firstly, the liquid waste passes through a series of screens which remove anything that that can’t be removed by biological and chemical treatment. An example of this would be tampons, clothes, stones and wood. This waste will eventually be taken to landfill. Once these items have been removed the waste then goes onto the next stage of the commercial sewage treatment plant. The waste passes through a series of different chambers where different natural processes engage in removing the toxins from the waste. One of the methods used is to allow different types of bacteria into the waste; these bacteria then eat up the toxins and other nasties in the waste. Another method is to pump oxygen into the waste which also helps to clean the waste.
At the end of the process the commercial sewage treatment plant is left with a variety of different outputs. The most important of which is clean water which discharges the clean water into the local watercourse; this may be a river or a stream or the sea. This water is now harmless and poses no risk to the environment. The other main output is called “cake” (but is also known as bio solids) and it is a solid sludge that is a good form of natural fertilizer, soil conditioner and an excellent source of organic matter which can be spread onto agricultural land. This helps to improve the circular economy and reduces the amount of waste going to landfill.
Andersons Waste Management is a liquid waste haulier with an exceptional fleet of tankers and drivers based in the Bristol area but we operate all around the Southwest. We are open 24/7 and can take your liquid waste to a commercial sewage treatment plant where it can be properly treated. Once we collect the waste from your site it becomes our responsibility and we provide waste transfer notices to ensure we are compliant with the Environment Agency and the local water authority.
All forms of liquid waste need to be treated to make the liquid suitable to be discharged into the water course. This waste could be sewage, dairy washings, brewery waste, leachate, contaminated ponds, oil, grease, ink washings, petroleum products and many more. Different types of waste need to be treated in different ways; for example a commercial sewage treatment plant will perform differently when compared to a treatment plant that treats petroleum waste. It is essential to send your waste to the correct treatment plant. If you send your waste to the wrong type of treatment plant then it can either damage the treatment plant and/or not get treated properly.
The sewage from your house either runs through the pipes/sewers to a commercial sewage treatment plant or, if you live in a more rural area, it will go to a septic tank near your house. This septic tank will then need to be emptied once a year and the sewage should be taken to a commercial sewage treatment plant in a tanker lorry. This means that no sewage should be getting into the watercourse without being thoroughly treated first.
When the sewage arrives at the treatment plant it passes through a variety of different treatment techniques; one of the first ones is to pass all the sewage through some screens which act like sieves to remove anything large and unwanted- clothing, tampons etc. After this there are various stages that help clean the water and leave it incredibly pure. To fully understand the process you can watch The Secret Science of Sewage on BBC iPlayer https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000t8zl which gives an incredibly good summary of how a commercial sewage treatment plant works. In a nutshell though it is a very organic process that doesn’t involve lots of chemicals; a sewage treatment plant is a natural and living ecosystem with lots of live bugs/bacteria that break down all the “nasties”. So if you add unwanted waste streams then those bugs are unable to break it down and may even kill/damage the bugs.
Commercial sewage treatment plants have a capacity beyond which they no longer work; i.e. they can only process so much waste in a given time frame. This means that when it rains heavily there is a risk that sewage will back-up into people’s houses because the sewage treatment plant hasn’t got the capacity to take in more waste. In this scenario the sewage treatment plants are permitted to release untreated wastewater into the watercourse to prevent the whole system becoming overloaded which would lead to further problems.
At Andersons Waste Treatment we have a de-watering plant which effectively separates out the solids from the liquids. We are only permitted to take in certain waste streams; if it falls outside of our permit then we will take the waste directly to the nearest commercial sewage treatment plant so it won’t contaminate our de-watering plant. All the waste that we take in eventually goes to the water company’s commercial treatment plant (either by sewer or by tanker) where it passes through all the same technologies as household waste.
