Contaminated Waste Hauling
ABS Trucking are a waste disposal business started with an excellent entrepreneurial opportunity with tenacity and creativity of a successful entrepreneur. Here is how our venture in Edmonton started.
Getting to know about the disposal chain: The hazardous waste removal and disposal industry is rapidly gaining prominence in Canada and throughout the world. There are millions tons of waste that are generated by only the households. There are also massive amounts of hazardous waste that are generated by the industrial, commercial and medical sectors and this is why contaminated waste hauling is needed. Depending on the waste, we recycle it, dispose it off or deliver it to an approved facility service for the same.
Basing foundation: Hazardous waste is defined as materials that are potentially flammable, reactive, corrosive or toxic. Our startup required the purchase or leasing of vacuum trucks, vacuum trailers, super vacuum trucks, pump tankers, bulk tankers, vans, roll-offs, semi-trailer trucks and other assets. To protect our workers and our business, it was critical to make sure we have the right equipment for the task at hand. We never attempt to save a few bucks by using non-specialized equipment for specialized transportation or removal tasks.
Investigation of competitors: Before we decided to open a hazardous waste disposal business in this town, it was worthwhile to find out how strong the competition is. We generated a list of competitors in the area. It’s important to be aware of what the competition is doing. We took the time to visit the competition to properly assess their strengths and weaknesses.
Create business plans: Our hazardous waste disposal company’s business plan is a document that shaped our goals and strategies on a go-forward basis. Lacking a solid business plan, many startups find themselves rudderless and incapable of executing consistent decision making processes, while we being committed business planners rely on our plans to guide all of our decision making and short-term planning efforts and long term success.
Catching up with the advices: the next step was to take advices from folks who are already into the business. We would have been overoptimistic to think that our local competitors will talk to us but owners of a hazardous waste disposal business on the other side of the country were much happier to talk with us, after they realized that we reside far away from them and won’t be stealing their local customers.
Contaminated Soil Hauling
ABS Trucking is a progressive company in Edmonton providing waste disposal services providing expertise is Contaminated soil hauling.
What is soil hauling?
Excavation of contaminated soil from a site involves digging it up for “ex situ” (above-ground) treatment or for disposal in a landfill. Excavation also may involve removing old drums of chemicals and other buried debris that might be contaminated. Removing these potential sources of contamination keeps people from coming into contact with contamination and helps speed the cleanup of contaminated groundwater that may be present.
How does Soil hauling work?
Contaminated soil is excavated using standard construction equipment, like backhoes and excavator track hoes. The equipment chosen depends on how large and deep the contaminated area is, and whether access is limited by the presence of buildings or other structures that cannot be moved. Long-arm excavators can reach as deep as 100 feet below ground, but excavations are generally limited to much shallower depths due to safety concerns and difficulty keeping the hole open. Sometimes soil is excavated below the water table, which requires walling off the contaminated area and pumping out the water to keep dry during excavation.
How long will it take?
Excavating contaminated soil may take as little as one day or as long as several years. The actual time it takes to excavate will depend on several factors. For example, it may take longer where:
The contaminated area is large, very deep, or below the water table.
Contaminant concentrations are high, requiring extra safety precautions.
The contaminated soil contains a lot of rocks or debris.
Buildings or site activities limit the movement of equipment.
The site is remote, or the treatment and disposal facilities are far away.
What are the effects on normal citizens?
Nearby residents and businesses may notice increased truck traffic during soil excavation and the noise of earth-moving equipment. Excavations are fenced off to prevent entry to the area until it is backfilled and covered with clean soil.
What are the reasons to haul contaminated soil?
Excavation is commonly used where in situ cleanup methods will not work quickly enough or will be too expensive. Offsite disposal and ex situ treatment are often the fastest ways to deal with high levels of contamination that pose an immediate risk to people or the environment. Excavation is also a cost-effective approach for small amounts of contaminated soil.
Drilling Waste Hauling
ABS Trucking is a progressive company in Edmonton providing waste disposal services. We are experts in contaminated soil hauling. ABS Trucking was formed in 1997 in Edmonton.
In order to haul waste properly, there are many things that need to be addressed.
Equipment can be expensive and time consuming.
A one ton dual axel pick-up truck is essential. An oil field truck should also be diesel because it allows for enough starting torque, pulling power, and fuel economy to haul the kinds of loads needed in the oilfield. A truck with a flatbed makes it easier to turn on tight rig locations and back-up into the areas needed efficiently and effectively. Many trucks also have extra fuel tanks to prevent long journeys back to town; oil wells are often located miles from town. If a pick up for another load or backhaul from a different rig is needed, preparation has already occurred. Another feature that can be very advantageous on a truck is a gin pole. If the rig happens to not have a forklift or if it is not working, off loading of items can still occur with the gin pole or winch set-up on the rear of the truck (only after unhitching the trailer).
The best kind of truck used for this work can be debatable. There are a lot of Dodge trucks with Cummins engines. Fords, one ton diesels, are used frequently. A few Chevy dual diesels are used in this type of work as well. Having a truck with four- wheel drive may be more then a luxury, if the rigs visited are on muddy roads. However, four-wheel drive can add extra maintenance fee and reduce fuel mileage. Many truck operator’s start off by buying a new or used rig and subleasing it and their services to another established company. This can be a great way to learn the industry before going out alone and reduces start-up business cost.
Many oilfield services use trailers that are custom made for the purpose of subleasing. One such trailer that can be seen frequently is the “Big Tex” trailer. It has a length of 30’-40’. A good trailer should have dual tandem axels and be rated for at least 30,000 pounds. A trailer with heavy duty i-beam construction, heavy duty suspension and a roll off back end is necessary. There are some custom models which tilt, just as the semi truck trailers can, to allow for rolling off some loads. A search for “custom oilfield hot shot trailers” will bring up several companies who make them.
ABS Trucking is has an expertise in reclamation of land in Edmonton, you need to first know what land reclamation is. The term “land reclamation” is used to describe two different activities. In the first sense, it involves modifying wetlands or waterways to convert them into usable land, usually for the purpose of development. It can also be a process in which damaged land is restored to its natural state. In both cases, the term is used to refer to some sort of process that is designed to fundamentally alter the characteristics of a piece of land to achieve a desired end goal.
The practice of filling in wetlands and waterways to make more land is ancient. Humans tend to settle near water, since they need it to survive, and because waterways can be used as a method of transportation for people and goods. As human settlements grow, the pressure on the existing land also grows, and people may start to expand outwards by filling in the surrounding area. Land reclamation has historically been accomplished with garbage and other landfill material, making reclaimed areas highly unstable and prone to developing sinkholes.
Reclaimed land can also be quite expensive, since it is located close to the water in areas that are appealing to many settlers. People may be willing to pay a premium for reclaimed land, especially if they used to live and do business by the shoreline and the reclamation has pushed their property inland. In some regions of the world, this process happened so long ago that people are not aware that they are living and doing business on land that was created by artificial means.
Land reclamation is also used to repair environmental damage. For example, if a beach becomes severely eroded, beach nourishment may be used to restore the beach, a method designed to preserve the existing natural environment. Land reclamation is also used in regions that experience desertification, with the goal of turning arid land into farmland. Regions like Southern California were settled after reclamation made the land usable, while in parts of Africa and Asia where the desert is expanding, the process is used to keep human communities intact.
Environmentalists use a version to repair land that has been subjected to some form of environmental damage. For example, heavily polluted land may be put on a land reclamation plan that is designed to remove the pollutants and promote the re-establishment of native plant and animal species. Damaged wetlands, including those that have been filled to make usable land, can also be reclaimed through a slow environmental remediation process.
ABS Trucking provides backfill services in Edmonton as well. Backfill can be used for different purposes in different areas.
General: Backfill the excavation after placement of the permanent structure. Use backfill free of stones large enough to interfere with compaction; large or frozen lumps that will not break down readily under compaction, wood, or other extraneous material. Obtain backfill material from excavation or other sources. In areas not supported by a completed roadbed, retaining wall, or embankment place backfill in layers at most 10 inches deep (loose measurement). In areas supporting a portion of a roadbed, retaining wall or embankment place backfill in uniform layers at most 8 inches deep (loose measurement). Compact each layer to meet the density requirements of the roadbed, retaining wall, embankment material, or as shown in the plans.
Bridge Foundations, Retaining Walls, and Box Culverts: Do not place backfill against the structure until the concrete has reached the design strength required in Item 421 “Hydraulic Cement Concrete”. Backfill retaining walls with material meeting the requirements of item 423.
“ Retaining Walls”. Backfill around bridge foundations and culvets using material with no particles more then 4 inches in greatest dimension and with a gradation that permits thorough compaction. Rock or gravel mixed with soil may be used if the percentage of fines is sufficient to fill al voids and ensure a uniform and thoroughly compacted mass of proper density. Where backfill material is being placed too close to the structure to permit compaction with blading and rolling equipment, use mechanical tamps and rammers to avoid damage to the structure. Avoid wedging action of backfill against structures. To prevent such action, step or serrate slopes bounding the excavation. Place backfill uniformly around bridge foundations. Place backfill along both sides of culverts equally and in uniform layers.
Cement-Stabilized Backfill: Backfill the excavation to the elevations shown with cement-stabilized backfill. Use cement-stabilized backfill that contains aggregate, water, and a minimum of 7% hydraulic cement based on the dry weight of the aggregate, in accordance with Tex-120-E. Use clean sand as aggregate for cement-stabilized backfill unless otherwise shown on the plans. Use only approved aggregate.
Floodable Backfill: Backfill the excavation with floodable backfill to the elevations shown. Prevent the structure from being displaced during the placement of the floodable fill, and prevent floodable fill from entering culverts and drainage structures.
