Interceptor Cleaning

Lehane Environmental can provide legal on-site treatment of your interceptor waste using state of the art equipment. The unit is fully computer controlled with on line analysers which shut the unit down in the event of failed discharge levels. Operation Reports are printed out on-site and a copy is given to the Client.

We can also provide for the groupage collection and disposal of Interceptor Waste or bulk collection of large interceptor volumes using our combination articulated suction units (27,000 litre capacity). So whatever your requirements are, Lehane Environmental has the cost effective option for the emptying of your Interceptor.

The legal requirements for service stations are contained in The Dangerous Substances (Retail and Private Petroleum Stores) Regulations 1979 to 2006. These regulations control the licensing of petrol filling stations and private stores and lay down requirements for the provision and maintenance of oil interceptors to prevent the escape of petroleum to the environment.

The Dangerous Substances (Retail and Private Petroleum Stores) Regulations, 1979 to 2006 require the periodic recording of the tank contents for all underground storage tanks, for the purpose of precautions against the risk of leakage of petrol, where:

  • the soundness or integrity of a tank is suspect, or
  • the tank has been installed for over 20 years, or
  • it is specified as a license condition, or
  • it is required by a Licensing Authority Notice

The Health & Safety Authority (HSA) have a sample Emergency Response Plan (ERP) compiled to illustrate the requirements, procedures and legal obligations for petrol stations.
