All businesses in the UK are required to comply with the Environment Agency’s standard Pollution Prevention for Business advice. However, research shows that two-thirds of people in the manufacturing sector are unaware of the steps they should be taking to remedy pollution. More importantly, a worrying 85% of people aren’t aware of the individual guidelines their business is required to comply with.

A pollution prevention plan helps stop environmentally harmful practices and prevents downtime in your business by ensuring the drains and pumps are in optimal working order. It’s a vital tool whether you are managing your trade waste, preventing FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) from clogging the drain or wanting to understand the layout of your drains to reduce the risk of water pollution.
The first point of call should always be to understand the layout of your drainage system and its access points. An asset map or drain map, is an essential tool which can help you understand the location, the size and the depth of the drains running below your property. Should a flood or chemical spill happen, the asset map can be drawn upon to identify shut-off valves and access points to prevent trade effluent from entering the drains.
Following this, there are several maintenance services essential to ensure your site is in working order. At Metro Rod, we design a pre-planned maintenance plan which is tailored to your site. Helping to ensure the drains remain free from debris and potential blockages, interceptors are emptied regularly and grease traps don’t overflow. Above all, we make smart, informed solutions that drive cost savings and prevent downtime for your business.
For example, a typical pre-planned maintenance plan may include:
Implementing a planned maintenance schedule will not only help prevent disruption on your site but also assist you in your pollution control measures and compliance with the EA’s pollution prevention guidance.
