In this incident on May 9, 2022, an open flatbed trailer carrying a load of glass panes lost its load. Most of the cargo fell off while the trailer was in a parking lot and made a big and dangerous mess. The company lost about $45K of glass and needed Team Pro-Enviro to take care of the glass cleanup.
Careful Glass Cleanup
Working with broken glass is dangerous in any situation, but especially with so much in this incident. Our team arrived promptly and did a scene assessment. We brought the necessary equipment to scoop up the largest pieces of glass and sweep up the smaller ones. We worked carefully and completely cleared the parking lot of glass so it was safe for use.
Cargo Spill Recovery
Team Pro-Enviro is often dispatched for spill recoveries, typically for oil or diesel spills caused by a vehicle accident. However, the spill recovery involved often has to do with the cargo. Even if those cases, we are more than capable and ready to help.
We bring the right equipment, whether a heavy-duty crane for lifting, a sweeper to clean up messes, absorbents and other supplies for spills, and trained personnel. Our team focuses on safety first and foremost for our clients and our team. We set up safety perimeters so we can work without interruption and keep everyone safe.
We also perform load shift services in cases when we can salvage a load and prepare it for safe transport again. We’ll remove and reload the cargo, then properly secure it again to ensure a safe trip without further incident.
Thorough Cleanup Protects the Environment
If any storm drains or sewers are nearby, our team always will do a check there as well. Our focus on safety expands beyond just the current worksite. Spills entering storm drains can cause environmental damage and a high cleanup cost. We work hard to contain spills and protect storm drains during cargo spill recovery services.
