- Contaminating lakes and other swimming areas with high amounts of zinc and iron, which have proven to cause diabetes, cancer, skin irritation and other adverse side effects
- Exposing fresh waterway to corrosive, caustic concrete washout water and materials that may result in all kinds of damage to ecosystems
- Allowing calcium, magnesium oxide, and calcium – conventional ingredients in ready-mix concrete – to infiltrate our soil systems
If you have arrived here after reading, and hopefully enjoying the previous posts, I would like to say thank you.
The story began many, many years ago, while walking in concrete slurry and mud, I thought there had to be a safer, cleaner way to deal with the concrete washout waste after washing a concrete pump.
So, I took to paper and came up with my concept.
Just like the concreters have moved on from pushing wheelbarrows, PumperDump has grown to offer more than just a bin service.
When using PumperDump we assist you to:
- Avoid using plastic for washout trays
- Avoid the use of your onsite plant equipment
- Save your manual labour time and cost to clean up messes
- Eliminate extra tip fees
- Better manage any water runoff and possible pollution infringements
- Give recyclers an uncontaminated product to recycle
- Reduce unnecessary carbon emissions
- Introduce sustainable practices while dealing with concrete waste
- Improve onsite safety
- One price no hidden costs
Just like the sustainability Venn diagram shows, sustainability covers many areas and we have grown and innovated through constant dialog with builders, assisting them to solve their problems, and in doing that, we have also been able to assist them with their sustainability goals.
It looks simple and is simple, but what this bin can offer is a lot more.
This following chart compares the process and time builders take to deal with the washout tray onsite compared to using PumperDump. It shows the extra plant machinery handling and truck movements taken when done the traditional way.
PumperDump’s Concrete Waste Separation Unit, (CWSU) as we call it, has a 1m3 volume, with an inner tray to capture the concrete and an outer tray to store the wash water to be processed and recycled. PumperDump trays have a larger volume than the standard tray and yes, they can also be overfilled, but the outer tray gives room for the water and a better indication of when the limit will be reached.
We give builders back their skip bin volume for real rubbish, keeping any overweight charges to a minimum and help them mitigate the risk of fines with no more water running out of transported skips.
We don’t tie up onsite plant leaving them to be better utilised for onsite operations.
PumperDump’s no plastic policy delivers the recycler an uncontaminated concrete waste. Instead of plastic, we use our specially formulated water-based concrete release agent on all our bins.
We offer certificates on the concrete and water collected and recycled and the volume of plastic diverted from landfill.
Even when construction has commenced, some builders and concreters are reluctant to use PumperDump, believing it’s an extra cost without seeing the many hidden costs already associated with the cleaning and disposal of concrete waste.
My story goes, from walking through concrete slurry and mud after washing a concrete pump, to starting and growing PumperDump, to now offering a range of services that will help you to a safer more sustainable concrete pumping 21th century.
