Sandblasting and Cleanup
Sandblasting is a quick, effective way to prepare a surface for painting. Its biggest downside is that it creates several different types of harmful waste, including grit waste and paint chips, which can spread pollutants and compromise the local water supply if not carefully contained and removed upon project completion. Thus, it’s essential that you hire experts trained in preparation and environmental cleanup.
Proper waste containment includes covering grit piles, using containment doors and ventilation for indoor blasting, and employing tarps or other screening structures for outdoor blasting. All of these steps help to prevent the spread of grit across the property. If the grit waste contains toxic components (i.e. paint chips with anti-fouling agents), it could be classified as hazardous materials and require disposal according to state and federal regulations.
Local and federal regulations dictate what can and can’t be done on a particular property. Whether you’re involved in construction, digging, installation, production, or waste disposal, the right permits are needed in order to be in compliance. In Illinois, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offers permits for properties and businesses via the state bureaus of land, air, and water.
Some permits are granted for specific projects, and others are general permits that cover a variety of tasks. The Illinois EPA is responsible not just for permit approval but also evaluation and enforcement, the former of which is handled by certified authorities via on-site visits and testing. To ensure regulatory compliance and avoid construction or production interruption, you need the experts at Axis Response Group on your side.
