Luckily, we've made it easier than ever to find the right liquid waste removal solution for your needs. No matter what type of substance you're dealing with, we've got the tools for the task at hand.

Here's all you need to know about different types of liquid waste.

What is liquid waste?

With liquid waste, the clue's in the name: it's any form of liquid material that needs to be discarded. This can encompass wastewater from showers and toilets, washwater, waste from industrial processes, greases and oils, hazardous liquids and more. 

When liquid waste isn't disposed of properly, it can have an ugly and detrimental environmental impact. Carelessness with liquid waste can lead to contamination of soil and water sources, as well as creating potential hazards to our health. 

Your favourite cafe, the local Italian restaurant, hospitals, retail stores, schools, and every home in your neighbourhood - liquid waste must be managed daily in all kinds of routine environments. That's where Redooo comes in. 

We've taken the guesswork out of identifying what kind of liquid waste management is best for your needs. We've whipped every solution under the sun into one easy service and given you access at the press of a button, no matter what kind of waste you're generating.

Types of liquid waste

Let's dive (not literally - that wouldn't be enjoyable) into the kinds of liquid waste we can take care of...

Grease traps

Grease traps work to separate grease and oil from liquid waste before it enters plumbing systems. They protect plumbing systems from fats, oils, grease and food matter in commercial kitchens, restaurants and hospitality venues.

Redooo can solve grease trap waste problems instantly, offering blockage clearances, the removal of excess build-up, inspections, audits and cleaning.

Septic and Sewerage Waste

Septic and sewerage waste results from individual households and large communities, taking the waste from home plumbing and breaking it down via sewage processes.

There's no septic waste or sewerage waste challenge too hairy for Redooo, with blockage clearances, content removal, inspections, audits and cleaning available at the press of a button.


Industrial washwater is the result of cleaning operations that contain chemical or hydrocarbon residues. It's most often produced through processes such as textile cleaning, cooling towers or industrial machine cleaning. 

No matter the scale of the industrial washwater needs, Redooo's got a liquid waste removal solution.
