Facility Shutdown Cleaning & Waste Removal Services

A facility shutdown is often an unpleasant but necessary reality in business. Virtually all machines require maintenance and many of those machines may not be safe to service unless they are powered down. For most businesses, a facility shutdown checklist includes a thorough cleaning.

Shutting down your machines presents a great opportunity to make sure all of your machinery is clean in addition to collecting waste that may have accrued. It can be difficult to give a machine a thorough cleaning while it is operational, so closing your doors is often a crucial feature of facility shutdown procedures. The future of your operation can depend on the effectiveness of your facility shutdown cleaning measures.

    Manufacturing Plant Cleaning: Why Choose ERC

    For the majority of industrial or manufacturing plant administrators, the two weeks of a site outage are more stressful than any other period throughout the year. However, that facility shutdown serves a crucial purpose: industrial outages allow for the necessary manufacturing plant cleaning to occur.

    Most manufacturing plants choose to partner with a waste disposal company to facilitate manufacturing plant cleaning. Choosing the right company can create a successful, less hectic experience. Learn how the skills, processes, and resources of ERC make manufacturing plant cleaning easier and more cost-effective.

    Benefits of a Manufacturing Plant Cleaning with ERC

    While some degree of manufacturing plant cleaning can occur during operation, a sustained period outage is necessary to truly mitigate all environmental waste and clean the equipment.

    Performing this maintenance as quickly as possible, without complication, and in an environmentally responsible manner is the objective. ERC makes that a reality. When ERC handles your manufacturing plant cleaning, they provide both the professional equipment and experienced labor.

    Here are the benefits of teaming with ERC for Manufacturing Plant Cleaning:

    ERC Certifications

    One of the primary reasons to hire a professional industrial cleaning company is to perform tasks that in-house maintenance cannot do. ERC possesses certifications crediting that our technicians have the ability to safely handle advanced industrial cleaning tasks.

    ERC certifications include:

    • HAZwoper certification
    • Confined space entry certification

    The ERC Resources

    While an in-house maintenance crew can perform some actions needed during outage cleaning, they don’t possess the heavy equipment exclusive to an environmental recovery company. ERC employs a fleet of vacuum and disposal trucks to perform the heavy lifting of an industrial cleanup. That impressive investment in cleanup equipment is one of the major factors that separates ERC from competitors.

    ERC also operates the largest waste disposal and recycling facility on the east coast. That means the waste removed from the facility is processed directly by ERC—no middleman.

     The Environmental Benefit

    ERC also distinguishes itself from competitors by evaluating waste for alternate disposal during the cleaning. This allows ERC to devise alternate disposal methods for waste extracted during an outage cleaning.  Whenever possible, ERC will provide alternative waste treatment options to offset the environmental impact.

    The Right Price

    Working with ERC for your outage cleaning almost always yields a lower price. The innovative waste disposal solutions ERC finds don’t simply reduce environmental impact, they often save you money.

    Additionally, since we own the trucks and the processing facility, we cut out the middleman, meaning you save on the service.
