Sprint Introduces Tank Washout Services

For businesses using containers to transport industrial and commercial waste, properly cleaning the equipment before returning to the rental agent or back into inventory can represent significant time lost and dollars wasted, especially if additional cleaning providers are involved. Reducing turnaround times and eliminating third-party vendors can save money, reduce risk, and help ensure all waste is managed and processed safely and according to proper compliance measures.

Sprint Waste Services’ tank washout facility, conveniently located in the heart of the Houston Ship Channel, is a reliable, one-stop solution for container washing. Offered only to current Sprint customers as a value-added service, our wash facility has the capacity to clean three units simultaneously, handling roll-off boxes, vacuum boxes and metal-lid containers. (Please note our washout service is not for tankers, trailers, frac tanks, ISO containers or railcar containers at this time.)

The convenient, turnkey cleaning solution benefits oil and gas, refining, petrochemical and wastewater treatment customers—any business that produces wastewater or sludge. All wastewater removed during the cleaning process goes to an approved wastewater treatment plant, while solids are hauled to approved landfills.

Key Features and Benefits

Our proven cleaning process includes complete documentation and tracking of all equipment and container condition and contents, providing the peace of mind facilities want and the benefits they need:

  • Accelerates turnaround time and minimizes downtime while saving on rental fees
  • Eliminates excess transfer and hauling costs imposed by using third-party cleaning vendors 
  • Reduces risk and inefficiencies by eliminating need for multiple vendors
  • Promotes safety and compliance with a well-documented, audited and fully tracked cleaning process

“Our tank washout services are an important value-add to our customers who use industrial containers to manage waste streams,” said Steve Howard, Sprint Waste Services environmental manager. “Whether we provide the containers or customers rent elsewhere or own, because we’re already providing hauling and transportation services, we can incorporate safe, thorough and cost-effective cleaning with fast turnarounds to get the equipment back in inventory or back on the job.”
