Most organisations that have a spill risk should be holding floor sweep. If you are ordering after the spill has taken place you’re not reacting to the spill fast enough.
The product is liberally dusted over a spill area and then worked back and forth with a broom, rake or similar creating contact with the oil/hydrocarbon until it’s absorbed and fully encapsulated.
The key to using floor sweep to remediate a spill is to make sure as you sweep the absorbent into the Fuel/Oil Hydrocarbon it leaves the mixture dry. If it’s still wet you haven’t used enough and you won’t encapsulate the spill.
We have various Floor Sweep types available from premium to a standard variety that suits all applications.
Available in 5 and 10kg bags by the single bag or by the pallet, we can ship it fast to your door with little notice and we pride ourselves on fast deliveries and quality service.
Check with your local council regarding waste. Spill smart passes the paint filters test deeming it safe for disposal to landfill but it’s always a good idea to check with the local authorities first. Secondly, the local TIP should have advice on dumping this type of waste.
+ Does it last if I don’t use it?
Yes, our product is an organic blend of fibers sealed in pre-packaged 5kg and 10kg bags. We have had stock last for four years when kept in a dry storage area.
+ How fast can I get it?
Normally it’s in stock so most orders go out within 24 hours.

Remote Contracting Services
D.I.G Earthworks and Civil Pty Ltd are undertaking a $1m earthworks and civil project at Emerald Lakes on the Gold Coast of Australia,
Due to the development being built on a lake frontage the environmental design team called for the installation of a floating silt curtain to contain any sediment from the earthworks required on the project,
After contacting several different suppliers for a quote to supply the Silt Curtains we placed an order with Trade Environmental.
Trade Environmental were not the cheapest on the market, however, Paul Banner was the most professional when it came to giving advice on the right product at the best value for the project,
Paul kept in constant contact via email and phone with us to advise supply and delivery times as time was of the essence, work could not commence until the silt curtain was in place, he made sure we had all the necessary equipment and instructions for the best possible installation,
D.I.G Earthworks and Civil Pty Ltd highly recommend Trade Environmental and Paul Banner for the supply of floating silt barriers and we will be using them again on future projects
We are very happy with the service and product provided by Trade Environmental. Delivery was on time and the backup service couldn’t be faulted. I would most certainly use Trade Environmental for my next Sediment curtain requirement.
Trade Environmental have helped Haslin Constructions with clear and concise expertise and response for site deliveries are second to none. We are an NSW based company with projects varying within the government sector in remote locations. Trade Environmental deliver on time that is equal to major CBD deliveries.
For all your environmental needs I recommend Trade Environmental.
Thanks for your ongoing support and consultation for the project at SA water. You and your team at Trade Environmental have provided us invaluable support and back up and we appreciate it immensely.
The client is happy, everything worked out well and the customisation with the riser lines for Boom re-deployments and movements has worked great as intended. The products are standing up very well in the harsh conditions it's subjected to and we couldn’t be happier with the product and your services and how the project has gone with no issues at all. Thanks a lot.
