Liquid waste cannot go into the general waste stream and there are very strict regulations on how to dispose of it correctly. The safe and effective disposal of liquid waste requires an exceptional level of experience, care and attention to detail. If not handled expertly by a professional liquid waste removal company such as Tunnel Vision, liquid waste has the potential to be extremely dangerous and hazardous to the environment.
Tunnel Vision has the capacity to collect all volumes of liquid waste, from small quantities right through to bulk containers and large tanks. Our liquid vacuum tankers are authorised to remove waste from traps, tanks, pits and wash-down facilities.
Most liquid waste streams are perfect candidates for resource recovery as they can be recycled into new materials and commodities after treatment. No matter what kind or amount of liquid waste you have, our professional team can remove and dispose of it safely and efficiently, reducing the environmental impact of your home or business.
Our dedicated team are always committed to providing our clients with a high-quality and professional service. Tunnel Vision’s collection services are available 24 hours a day with very quick response times. We adhere to the highest standards of safety and compliance with current regulation standards, so you can trust that your liquid waste is always being managed efficiently and safely.

Septic & Sewerage Tank Waste
A septic tank is an underground structure that uses biological decomposition to treat wastewater. Over time, the sewerage located within the septic tank will produce disease-causing microorganisms and parasites. It is therefore very important that these contaminants are disposed of safely and regularly to protect your health. Performing a septic tank pump-out on a regular basis will keep your sewerage system in optimal condition and will prevent any potential issues before they arise.
Periodic sewerage tank cleaning can:
- Prevent sewerage drain blockages
- Avoid discharge of raw sewerage
- Eliminate bad smells
We also offer tank cleaning services with techniques designed to minimise personnel exposure and eliminate or reduce manned entry into the tank.
Grease Trap Waste
Restaurants, industrial kitchens and other businesses within the food and beverage industry produce a large amount of grease and food solid waste every day. A grease trap is a plumbing device that is designed to trap solid grease and light waste particles before they enter the sewerage system to prevent water pollution.
Grease traps require regular maintenance, emptying and cleaning to ensure optimal functionality and to prevent blockages. In some areas of Australia, the local water authority has regulatory oversight of grease trap maintenance. Restaurants and commercial kitchens must comply with local regulations by ensuring their grease traps are properly maintained. Depending on the size of your business, it is recommended that your grease traps are serviced two to six times annually.
Tunnel Vision is one of WA’s leading grease trap disposal companies. Our experienced, qualified and DER-registered personnel can efficiently remove liquid waste and transport it to a DER-licenced facility for disposal. With our environmentally-friendly procedures and processes, you can rest easy knowing that your liquid waste will be handled safely.
With Tunnel Vision’s grease trap cleaning services, your business will not have to worry about:
- Bad smells and risk of flooding
- Blocked drains through heavy build-up in grease traps
- Hefty fines and possible legal actions from local water authorities
- Expensive emergency plumbing and grease trap repairs
Waste Management Services
Liquid waste management goes beyond collecting and recycling – we can also provide consulting services on how to most effectively handle and manage your liquid waste. Tunnel Vision can help your business identify and implement systems to reuse your waste before collection and processing, such as reclaiming wastewater for other uses within your site before recycling.
We can also compile waste assessments, audits and reports that can be provided to ensure the optimum waste solution is provided and your waste targets are met. Controlled waste tracking documentation can be provided to confirm that your waste has been disposed of safely and a registered waste disposal site.
Key Issues With The Disposal of Liquid Waste
Liquid waste requires very careful handling and is strictly regulated to ensure safe disposal and minimise harm to the environment. For many homes and businesses, the key issues with liquid waste disposal are:
Storage – Tunnel Vision can help ensure your liquid waste is stored safely and securely, minimising the risk of an accident.
Transportation – Many businesses that generate liquid waste are subject to ‘chain of custody’ requirements, where they are ultimately accountable for the transport and disposal of all waste generated by their business. Tunnel Vision is a certified trackable waste transporter, with systems in place to electronically track your waste, so you can easily report to the local authorities as required.
Tunnel Vision offers comprehensive liquid waste services that can be customised to fit your budget, business needs and ensure compliance with all state and local regulations. Our team of experts have the experience necessary to handle any form of liquid waste, backed by our specialist fleet of trucks and equipment.
Department of Environmental Regulation (DER)
Regardless of where you are located within Western Australia, the collection and disposal of liquid waste are covered by extremely stringent regulations. These wastes cannot just be released into the regular waste stream as it has the potential to cause major harm to the environment.
Liquid waste is not like the disposal of regular waste. In many cases, there are environmental procedures and laws that you are required to follow to ensure that the disposal of liquid waste is performed in a safe and environmentally conscious manner.
Tunnel Vision holds all relevant environmental licences associated with liquid waste collection and disposal, and are therefore able to remove all categories of controlled liquid waste listed on the Department of Environmental Regulation (DER) category listing. Our tankers are all DER registered bulk transport vehicles and range from 4000 litres to 8000-litre capacity.
