Vacuum Truck Services
GFL Environmental delivers integrated vacuum truck services for all of your industrial, municipal and residential maintenance needs. From routine sewage hauling to complex jobs in mines and other hazardous work environments — we have the appropriate equipment, the experience and the trained personnel to get the job done safely and efficiently. Our fleet of hydrovac trucks and code-built straight-vacs vary in design and performance to complete an impressive range of specialized jobs 365 days a year.
HYDROVACS FOR GROUND DISTURBANCE / DAYLIGHTING
Our hydrovac trucks are used for sensitive subterranean excavation work and to safely expose underground gas lines or electrical wires. GFL’s hydro-excavation units combine high-velocity vacuum with high-pressure water to slurry and remove columns of soil, clay, sand and gravel to depths of over 10 metres.
VACUUM TRUCKS FOR THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY
We incorporate detailed procedures for the safe loading of flammable liquids onto specialized vac trucks. GFL’s vacuum trucks are built to comply with CSA B-620 standards and have unique design specifications to ensure neutralization of electrostatic build-up, dissipation of flammable vapours and remote emergency engine shutdown. We follow strict grounding and bonding techniques and use special non-sparking tools and flame-resistant personal protective equipment (PPE) when working with flammable materials.
VACUUM TRUCKS FOR THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY
Green For Life’s vacuum truck services include aggressive chemical and hazardous waste applications. Together with our confined space entry teams, our trucks are often deployed to remove sludge, chemicals and by-products from storage tanks or process vessels. We incorporate detailed procedures and use highly-specialized equipment to load, transfer and transport virtually any type of material.
VACUUM TRUCKS FOR THE MINING INDUSTRY
From regular maintenance to emergency response, planned shut-downs and expansion projects, GFL has the equipment and experience required for mill, load-out, tailings management operations and more. Our vacuum loaders and hydroexcavators can handle traditional wet and dry vac applications and are equipped with a large water supply for excavation operations. Our combination units also allow for quick purging and transition of tasks, allowing GFL operators to work on daily hydro excavating and line flushing and — within minutes — begin recovery of reclaimable dry product specific to the your request.
VACUUM TRUCKS FOR SEPTIC TANKS
We service residential and commercial septic holding tanks by removing sewage and black / grey water for proper treatment and disposal. We also provide steam cleaning, thawing and maintenance as well as scheduled service to prevent costly sewage backups and overflowing. GFL septic tank service can also be provided on a call-in or emergency basis.
VACUUM TRUCKS FOR INTERCEPTOR PITS
GFL removes collected sediment and wastewater from interceptors such as sump pits, catch basins, floor trenches and grease traps. We can also flush and camera-inspect associated pipe works to ensure optimal flow. Our interceptor pit-maintenance service is available on a scheduled, call-in or emergency basis.
