A lot goes into spill response and effective truck accident recovery. Pro-Enviro is dispatched when there is a motor vehicle fuel or oil spill, or when a load containing other hazardous material is lost on the road. In these blog archives, you’ll discover what is entailed with spill recovery. It includes assessment, creating a complete heavy vehicle accident management plan, and then getting to work with spill containment, collection, disposal and remediation.
In many cases, our team at Pro-Tow 24 Hour Towing is on the job too. Pro-Tow uses wrecker style cranes to help with the heavy lifting to get the accident site cleaned up so we can open it back up to local traffic. We also work alongside local agencies like the Washington State Police and Fire Departments, and the Washington Department of Transportation. If you want more information about what we do, contact us any time.
On January 21, 2019, a 95,000 lbs shipping container overturned at the intersection at 15th NW and State Highway 167. Unfortunately, the accident also resulted in a motor oil spill, so all lanes had to be closed during the peak afternoon commute time. For an accident like this, both Pro-Tow and Pro-Enviro came to help with the recovery.
On November 9, 2018, a semi-truck accident occurred in Tukwila, WA, which involved a trapped driver and a fully loaded shipping container. Both Team Pro-Tow and Team Pro-Enviro responded to the call for this incident.

On July 16, 2018, Team Pro-Enviro and Team Pro-Tow responded to a call regarding a burnt-out trailer on the I-90 near North Bend, WA.

In this incident several years ago on July 1, 2016, a semi-truck tipped over and spilled its cargo at the edge of the road. Team Pro-Enviro responded with a cargo reload service, as spills don’t always involve fuel and oil! In this instance, product boxes needed to be cleaned up and reloaded.
Several years ago, on December 1, 2014, Team Pro-Enviro and Team Pro-Tow responded to a fishy situation in Seattle, WA. A truck and trailer were cruising up the hill, and 11% grade, on Denny Way in downtown Seattle. The steep grade caused the load to shift and the trailer doors to open.
