At HydroVac we’re always looking at ways we can do things more sustainably, to improve our carbon footprint and lessen our impact on the environment.
We’re constantly innovating our practices, procedures and equipment to find more sustainable options for our operations. One of those innovations is our recent investment into Dry-X Air Excavation trucks. Using the very latest in German technology, these trucks use air instead of water to excavate, which has many eco-friendly benefits including:
- Excavated material remains dry, giving us the option to reuse the material on-site
- Water isn’t used for the excavation, saving this precious resource
- Less material needs to be disposed of at the end
- It reduces noise pollution
We dispose of unwanted material in an ethical manner, including using council-approved facilities for contaminated material that needs specific treatment.
We choose environmentally friendly options for our office where possible, including turning used printer paper into notebooks for internal use and recycling toners and un-usable paper. We also choose to use eco-friendly products such as Ecostore dishwashing liquid and hand sanitisers in all trucks.
We are committed to developing more sustainable options and operations where possible, for a cleaner, greener New Zealand future.
