Collection, transport and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste
Collection and transport of non-hazardous waste is ensured by the positioning of bins (available from 60 litres up to 1 m³), waste compactors and skips of various capacity (da 3 m³ a 40 m³) and the emptying on demand or according to prearranged collections. The waste can either be sent to a suitably licensed facility for recycling or disposal, or can be sorted at Bra Servizi.
Emptying of Cesspools, pipeline video inspection, sewage treatment and drain cleaning
Unblocking and high-pressure water cleaning of pipes (drainage systems, gutter, etc), the emptying and cleaning of cesspools, septic tanks and Imhoff tanks are among the many services provided by Bra Servizi. A fleet of tankers is equipped with the latest water pressure jetting technology. A prompt and high-standard service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. As well as removing silt and sewage, there is also a collection, transport, storage and disposal service for any type of liquid waste, hazardous and non-hazardous, which covers private citizens and industrial sites.
Sorting and processing of waste
Sorting mainly focuses on mixed packaging and bulky waste collected from companies. The waste, after being sorted into its various constituent components (eg. paper, glass, metal, plastic and residual material) is compressed using compacting machinery to reduce its volume. It is then forwarded on to more specialised plants for recycling/processing. Any waste which cannot be recycled is disposed of.
Dismantling, transport and disposal of products containing asbestos
Bra Servizi provides asbestos removal and site clearance services. The dismantling, transport and removal of asbestos materials takes place after a previous inspection and chemical analysis in order to isolate fibres free of asbestos. After preparing work and operational safety plans for the Health and Safety department ASL as provided for by art. 34 DL no 277 e/o Direttiva 494/96, Bra Servizi removes the material containing asbestos / asbestos cement sheeting. The material is then transported and disposed of at licensed plants.
Processing and recycling of waste building material and debris
Thanks to cutting-edge technology which enables the quick removal and suction of building debris up to a diameter of 40 cm, and to a specialised processing plant, Bra Servizi can provide a complete service for the handling of huge quantities of inert waste of which most can be recycled (eg. used in road surfaces). This considerably reduces the burden placed on landfills.
Dewatering sewage sludge by centrifuge
Bra Servizi provides dewatering of all types of sludge following a two step process: first a chemical operation which is then followed by a mechanical one in which water is successfully separated from waste. Bra Servizi offers this service at the customer’s premises and takes care all the details.

Used tyres processing and recycling

The end product is a largely textile and steel-free granulate, less than 3 mm in diameter. From this high-value products can be produced for a wide range of purposes (eg. low-noise road surfaces, track surfaces, anti-trauma flooring).

These include the compilation of loading/unloading registers, the compilation of the Annual Environmental Declaration forms (Modello unico di dichiarazione ambientale, MUD), help in registering for the Waste tracking control system SISTRI and assistance with the collection of USB devices and the installation and configuration of Black Boxes.
