In this article, we take a look at Metal Biz’s environmental efforts and discuss some of the benefits of using a SEDA liquid drainage system to remove harmful chemicals from end of life vehicles and protect Brisbane’s waterways.
Protecting Brisbane’s waterways
Brisbane’s waterways are an integral part of our city and play an important role in our environment, economy, and livelihoods. Not only do they reduce floods and provide a safe habitat for many animals and plants, but they also act as a major source of clean water for domestic, agricultural, and industry use.
However, with a rapidly growing population and greater quantities of waste being produced every year, our waterways are under increasing pressure from threats such as chemical waste, stormwater run-off, vehicle pollution, and litter.
The bottom line? What you do around your home, business, and garden has a direct impact on the health of our waterways.
So, how is Metal Biz changing the game?
At Metal Biz Recyclers, we’re passionate about protecting the environment and conserving its natural beauty. We’re committed to dismantling, recycling, and disposing of cars in the most efficient and economical way, without causing unnecessary harm to the planet we all live in.
Some of the ways that Metal Biz protect Brisbane’s waterways include:
- We prevent chemicals (like petrol, engine coolant, brake fluid, waste oil, battery acid and windscreen washing liquid) from entering our drainways.
- We dispose of hazardous waste safely and correctly.
- We make sure that all of our rubbish goes into the garbage bin or the recycling bin.
- We recycle scrap metal and car bodies (for cash) to prevent illegal dumping and stop toxic chemicals from leaching into the soil and earth.
Scrap car de-pollution system
At Metal Biz Recyclers, we use a state-of-the-art SEDA EasyDrain system to safely and efficiently remove hazardous liquids from end of life vehicles. The SEDA system can remove up to 98% of all fluids without spilling a drop and de-pollute your scrap car in approximately 10-12 minutes.
The SEDA EasyDrain system also significantly reduces the risk of water contamination with grid areas beneath the workstations to ‘catch’ the chemical waste run-off before it can reach our waterways.
And, if that’s not enough to convince you, then our recent Brisbane City Council environmental audit will. We received an outstanding result from our auditor with fantastic comments about the SEDA system. On our report our auditor said, “the use of the SEDA Easy Drain systems are very efficient and substantially reduce the potential for liquid waste contamination of the site. The installation of these systems has greatly improved potential for compliance onsite”.
