Making choices that benefit the environment is more important now than ever. There are countless ways to make an impact — everything from hand washing your socks to changing what happens to your waste after you flush. There are various off-grid waste disposal systems that are better for the environment than standard on-grid sewage. Discover which is right for you and make a change today.
Septic tanks are a popular alternative to traditional on-grid sewage systems. There are many advantages to using a septic tank, including a range of ecological benefits.
- The bacteria that break down waste in septic tanks are entirely natural. This is in contrast to the chemicals added during traditional on-grid waste disposal. Because the bacteria used in septic tanks are naturally occurring and completely harmless, this method of waste disposal avoids the risk of environmental contamination.
- By avoiding environmental contamination, septic tanks are also keeping others in your community safe. This is because a well-maintained septic tank will reduce the chance of disease spreading through contaminated water or soil.
- Treated liquid is released from the septic tank into a drainage field. This water permeates the soil, helping food to grow for local wildlife.
Domestic Sewage Treatment Plants
Another option is a home sewage treatment plant, a miniature waste treatment facility on your own property.
- Many sewage treatment plant systems are pre-approved for discharge to a watercourse. They are approved by the Environmental Agency and allow you greater control over how your waste is disposed because you are in charge of the system
- Many modern domestic sewage treatment plants are running successfully without electricity. These systems use natural aeration to oxygenate the incoming wastewater without electrical input.
Grey Water Recycling
Grey water recycling systems are becoming an increasingly popular addition to new builds.
- A grey water recycling system collects the water you use in your sinks, dishwashers, showers and baths, cleans it up and reuses it in your toilet, washing machine and outside tap. This reduces the amount of water you use, which not only benefits the environment, but also your bank balance.
- Up to 50% of domestic water can be recycled using a grey water recycling system, which helps reduce the strain on the water supply network.
