The true cost of a dump


If you are like the majority of liquid waste pumpers out there, then you will have considered bulk storage and transport. Payload is king, and always will be. So the less trips to the dumpsite the better your bottom line.

When looking at your operations there’s one question that needs to be asked:

Do you do daily trips to the dumpsite?

Lower payload means more kilometers on the road and for those managing varied
waste, the specialised dumping requirements means this effect is magnified.

The hit taken on carrying out daily trips can quickly add up to significantly impact your bottom line.

Daily trips decrease the time pumping whilst increasing your operational costs. That’s a lose-lose situation.

There is a more efficient way.

The good news is that it’s not all that hard to limit dump runs while moving large volumes.
The answer is a bulk trailer aka the VTS Trivac. The reason we designed the Trivac was simple: customers are only get paid to pump, not to dump or to drive.

And less time on the road means more time earning.

So what does this all mean for you?

In the graphic above, a bulk trailer helps this pumping operation to:

  • Increase their dump run volume by 300%
  • Decrease their daily km’s travelled by 17%
  • Reduce their required man-hours
  • Avoid excess travel in peak hour traffic times
  • Effectively manage varied waste
  • Simultaneously run their daily collection truck while the trailer does a dump run

Some Trivac owners have their own prime mover, others hire one only for the dump run. We’ve got a solution for both. Get in touch to find out how we can help.
