Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

(1)Covered area was already available, only rearranging was needed. (2) Due to containment curbs and STORMWATER collectors, which are pumped to our pre-treatment facility, the savings in disposal costs would be offset by reduced load on the pre-treatment facility. (3) Reduced man hours sweeping (1 man @ 2 hours a week $14.00 plus reduced absorbent use 2 bags $10.00), equaling approximately $1250 savings per year.
