Oil Field Container Services
If there’s one industry that defines the Lone Star State, it’s the oil business. Fortunes have been won and lost because of it and it remains a vital part of the state’s economy. While a vital part, one thing that remains in the production of this integral commodity is the messy nature of its delivery.
Cleanliness as a Business Strategy
From basic materials like towels and rags needed for cleaning and regular maintenance to items like disposable garments and worn out parts, trash can accumulate quickly in the oil field. That means the needing a place to put that trash to ensure site cleanliness is a necessity. The answer, renting dumpsters for onsite use.
Given the often remote locations that the rigs, derricks and other vital components of production are located, it can be difficult to have a daily pickup or some other sort of regular schedule for disposal of oilfield trash. This is especially true with offshore units that have few options other than to simply litter the ocean, which is an ecological disaster waiting to happen.
Size That Works
One of the ways to get around the large amount of trash created is to use of larger oil field containers. Containers that offer a large enough receptacle require less frequent trips can result in less hits to a company’s bottom line too.
Situating oil field dumpsters in central locations can allow workers to get in the habit of keeping their work areas free of the inevitable mountain of trash that can quickly develop without such availability. That sort of oilfield waste management helps boost efficiency in all areas, allowing companies to focus on the work at hand.
Keeping a Handle on Safety Issues
In addition, oil field dumpsters may be able to help enhance the safety on the job. Because of the inherent danger that can be involved in the production of oil, any measures to increase safety are key. Slips, trips and stumbles due to messy surroundings and equipment can occur without an effective cleanup schedule in place, leading to injury or even tragedy.
Pinpointing the Number of Dumpsters for Your Business
Determining the right number of oil field containers needed for your business is an exercise that can vary depending on the scope of each individual project. By envisioning the need of a garbage truck for such duties, you can get a rough idea of how many to order.
For instance, the equivalency rate can be anywhere from nine to 15 garbage truck runs for each of the oil field dumpsters ordered. That simply means that for the small to medium jobs, it would ordinarily require the use of nine separate trucks to haul away one container’s worth of your trash. For large jobs, 15 trips could be expected.
Of course, the type of items and weight factor into that amount, as well. Companies that exceed the weight limits using oil field dumpsters are subject to overage charges.
