Safely and effectively handling concrete washout water is an important element in any concrete construction job. Improperly handled washout water can end up in rivers, lakes and estuaries as well as in rain water that penetrates soil and negatively affects the soil’s chemistry. Plant growth and vital ecosystems are endangered by alternations in soil pH.
Arguably one of the best ways to handle concrete washout materials is by using concrete chute washout bags. These leak-proof containers prevent water and other aggregate material from reaching the soil and also allows the material to be captured and then recycled.
Enviro-Systems’ Chute EnviroSac Ready Mix Bags offer an ideal solution at any concrete construction site. They offer a variety of benefits including:
- Foldable for easy storage in work trucks
- Available in a variety of sizes
- Allow for easy transportation of waste material
By purchasing our concrete chute washout bags, you’re ultimately investing in the health of our environment and the future generations who will enjoy it. Contact us to learn more about why our Chute EnviroSac Ready Mix Bags are a great solution for you.
