What do the new Septic Tank Regulations mean to you?
Back in November 2017, we wrote a blog advising all our customers of the change in Septic Tank Regulations which come into effect on the 1st January 2020. If you have a Septic Tank at home or at work and it’s discharging into a river, stream or surface water, we recommend that you take action now and review replacing it with a Wastewater Treatment Plant to meet the new EA regulations coming into force on the 1st January 2020.
Discharges from septic tanks directly to surface water will no longer be allowed under the general binding rules.
To help guide you on the new regulations, please read our last blog on the subject here and the click on the link to the current Gov.UK webpage on the subject here
KEE Process & KEE Services specialise in Wastewater Treatment Plants so if the changes in regulations apply to you then please do give us a call on 01296 634500 as soon as possible so we can help guide you through the process and advise you on the best approach to meet your requirements and EA regulations.
Well . . .
. . . we do as a business . . . but our passion for recycling resonates throughout the company.
This month, we wanted to feature some examples showing the imaginative ways in which KEE’s waste shredded paper and pallets are being used in the local community to help improve the local environment.
Tom works for a company caring for cancer patients. He uses the shredded paper to help break up the soil mass in the gardens. As you will see from the picture he sent in, Tom mixes the shredded paper with grass cuttings and leaves it to mulch down ready for digging into the soil in Autumn. This helps to lighten the soil and improve its texture and absorbency.
Our waste shredded paper is also used by a local lady who takes in sick animals from a local vet and nurses them back to health at her home. She uses the paper for animal bedding to not only help keep the area nice and clean for the animals but it also provides a soft, cosy bed for them to sleep on at night! When the paper is soiled and needs changing, it all goes straight into the composter and is recycled once again.
Tom has also been busy recycling our pallets to make a fence around his allotment. There has been a lot of interest from local people wanting to recycle our pallets recently so hopefully; later on in the year we will be able to show you some more great examples of how our pallets have been used to create something new.

It is imperative that a qualified ‘Slinger Banksman’ is in charge to direct and oversee the operations.
Adrian, Antonio and Luis in the yard, completing their training.
When KEE require the help of an external company to lift our bigger units on to the back of low loaders ,a 40 tonne or 50 tonne crane is required. When this takes place, the Slinger Banksman has to ensure that the lifting plan for the unit is carried out as specified. Any error in the lifting process can cause uneven pressure loads on to parts of the equipment so it is imperative that a qualified ‘Slinger Banksman’ is in charge to direct and oversee the operation. The Slinger Banksman guides the Crane Operator to where they need to be positioned whilst ensuring no other people come into the lifting area when a lift is taking place. Each lift involves positioning the lifting slings in the correct place and being in constant contact with the Crane Operator to ensure the lift is safe to complete.
We all at KEE look forward to seeing Adrian, Antonio and Luis out in the yard putting their training in to practice!
