CWS recognized for implementing a technological application based on outstanding pollution prevention efforts resulting in environmental protection.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. (CWS), the world’s premier concrete washout service company, announced today that it has been recognized by the Sacramento Business Environmental Resource Center (BERC) and awarded the 2004 Pollution Prevention Award (Technological Application) for its development and implementation of the Concrete Washout Systems bin.

“We are very pleased that BERC has chosen us for its 2004 Pollution Prevention Award based on our outstanding pollution prevention efforts in reducing stormwater contamination by recycling both hazardous concrete washwater and the solid concrete washout material. We have developed a product that not only meets and exceeds Best Management Practices (BMPs) but has set the standard for the industry as Best Available Technology,” stated Mark Jenkins, President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. “We continue to devote a lot of our efforts in educating the construction and erosion control industry professionals on the potential impact of illegal concrete washwater discharges and how our product and service can minimize their risk and exposure in a time when regulatory officials have stepped up enforcement efforts,” added Mr. Jenkins.

The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off-site recycling component yet again creates an even more environmentally sound application. This risk management system replaces other outdated washout BMP’s, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.
