|Municipalities are always looking for new ways to improve efficiencies and reduce operating costs. From streamlining operations to eliminating redundant departments, the bottom line has never been more important in government operations than it is today. Here are some of the reasons why municipalities are realizing the value of recycler sewer cleaning technology and making the switch.
With recycler technology, there is no need to waste money on city water. The system vacuums existing water from sewer lines and filters it for use in day-to-day operations. In fact, one truck outfitted with a Vacall Recycler continuous water recycling system can save an average of 5.7 million gallons of city water each year. With an average cost of $1.50 per 1,000 gallons of municipal water, a municipality could save nearly $10,000 a year by making the switch to recycler technology.
Recycler technology can save city crews countless hours on the job, reduce overtime, and allow the completion of more work in a typical day. When there is no need to fill up on city water, there is no need for crews to stop working and drive to refill their water tank. This improves productivity and makes sure municipal crews are spending time on the work that matters.
“Going green” is more than just a catchy slogan for municipalities. It means increasing efficiency and improving sustainability to lower operating costs. In addition to the obvious advantages of recycling sewer water and repurposing it for other uses, recyclers can also reduce fuel use, resulting in lower overhead and a reduction in burning fossil fuels.
