CONCRETE WASHOUT SYSTEMS
Starting in Sacramento, CA., between 2000 and 2001, the construction market saw the first wave of control measures being implemented on job sites. The worst of the violators included constructing dirt pits to contain concrete washout material. Most, if not all of the contractors were dismayed as to why they needed to do anything. Concrete was harmless after all, or so we all thought, and they had been washing out concrete trucks on lots and in uncontained areas for as long as they could remember. But they were told that containment was needed. Not long after that, we were being directed to washout in a designated area that was now lined with hay bales and plastic.
We saw a huge problem with not diverting and recycling the concrete material. In fact, what was actually occurring on the job site was increased waste heading to the landfill. The sites were still messy and muddy from the concrete wash-water and we began thinking there had to be a better way.
After numerous drawings and meetings, the first washout container prototype was built and was dropped on a job site in the Sacramento, CA. area. It was very well received and prompted an application to apply for patent protection.
Fast forward to today and in a short period of time, we have taken an entire industry by storm; providing you with a compliant and affordable solution to an industry-wide problem.
