For several years, local Michigan municipalities were overloaded with septage disposal issues and it was difficult for private pumpers to offload as land-application of septage became illegal. So John Campbell, founder of Big Fish Environmental and a 29 year veteran of septic tank pumping, started developing a unique and efficient septage receiving and treatment plant design.
Campbell reviewed several septage receiving units from other manufactures before choosing the Honey Monster® Septage Receiving System from JWC Environmental in Costa Mesa, CA. “The hair removal in the auger portion of the Honey Monster resulted in virtually no downstream clogging,” said Campbell. “The screening ability also made our homogenizing process more consistent per slurry load.”
Campbell provides consulting for pumpers interested in developing their own business running a receiving and treatment facility. By combining proprietary equipment as part of a treatment process, Campbell was able to develop a self-contained plant that can receive septage from the local municipality, private septage haulers, and other industrial producers. They all need to address waste processing.
