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 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. The trailer had burned to the ground and left an incredible mess on a busy section of highway on Snoqualmie Pass. It required extensive accident cleanup and spill recovery.
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.
Back on March 4, 2015, Team Pro-Enviro and Team Pro-Tow were called to the scene of a collision involving two semi-trucks with full loads. A truck hauling 80,000 pounds of potting soil collided with one pulling 55,000 pounds of k-cups. It created a large accident recovery scene that took most of the night to recover. Because of the cargo involved, the incident also required cargo recovery.
On May 2, 2019, Team Pro-Tow was called to a semi-truck accident near Auburn, WA. The truck had overturned, and its trailer was carrying a whole load of steel that weighed more than 70,000 lbs. This wreck would be a challenging semi-truck accident recovery.
Hazardous spills are a severe danger to the environment and harm local wildlife or plants. If there is a waterway nearby, it also risks contaminating the water and becoming a danger to people. That’s why, when there’s a spill, Team Pro-Enviro is quick to respond.
