“We are very pleased that Arizona Clean and Beautiful has chosen us for its 2005 Governor’s Pride in Arizona Award. We have been using Concrete Washout Systems patent pending container and system that not only meets and exceeds Best Management Practices (BMPs) but has set the standard for the industry as Best Available Technology for concrete washout containment,” stated Brian Ham, President of Washout Systems, LLC and Santa Rita Landscaping. “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,” added Mr. Ham.

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 creates an even more environmentally sound application. This system replaces other outdated washout BMP’s, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over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.
