McBreen Environmental have many years of experience in providing interceptor cleaning services to customers across Ireland.  The overflowing interceptor can have a significant impact on your business and environment. If an interceptor overflows, it could result in a car park covered in oil. This is potentially very dangerous not only for customers but also for company staff. Long term business problems could include the closure of car parks to deal with the overflow and even lost customs. This in turn leads to lost revenue. In addition to this, there is the inevitable environmental impact.

Interceptors collect the rainwater, oil and other waste products which accumulate in lorry depots, schools, airports, parks among other places. They permit only water to escape and trap all other pollutants like oils, fuels and other solid waste within the filtering system. But the accumulation of this waste can cause blockages and thus overflow.

The interceptor needs to be not just maintained but also serviced on a regular basis. This prevents overflow and contamination of drainage systems. We recommend servicing and emptying of interceptors every 6 months for standard installations. This also meets the recommended legal requirement.
