Reducing your company's environmental impact is a key benefit of plastic waste tanks.
Here's another benefit - portability.
Plastic Solutions has already written about how the Tuff Tank range of waste tanks have a much lower impact on the environment than their steel counterparts. The manufacturing process produces less carbon emissions and they don't need as much fuel to transport because they are lighter.
Let's focus in on the aspect of weight for a moment.
A standard 500 gallon metal tank has a dry weight of around 420 kilos. A Tuff Tank 3 from Plastic Solutions weighs in at...110 kilos. Almost 75% lighter. No wonder it takes less fuel to move these tanks around.
When we talk about portability though we don't just mean the ease moving tanks from site to site. We are talking about moving tanks around individual sites.
It is a tricky process getting a steel tank in place in the inhospitable environment of a construction site or an off-road location. The Tuff Tank, on the other hand, is light enough to be unloaded and moved around a site by hand if required. That means it is suitable for a much wider range of locations and applications than a metal tank.
In fact Tuff Tanks are being used to capture liquid waste on building sites, at public events and festivals all around the country.
