It’s strange that just 2 months ago, thinking about COVID-19 every minute of every day wasn’t on our radar. We all had great aspirations for 2020, and now we just can’t wait to get to 2021! All our lives have changed dramatically, and some of the changes may be permanent moving forward. I wanted to continue to write for the blog but have been struggling to come up with the right topic. Do I push a product? Do I tout Outpak and how we are trying to adapt in this changing economic climate? Is that considered insensitive? In the end, I decided we should highlight some people / segments of our industry that are literally putting their lives on the line right now to care for people and keep our
The Clean Water Act prohibits discharging pollutants, including concrete wash waste, into our water sources. Historically, there has been little policing of this policy. In recent years, however, the EPA and an increasing number of state agencies and municipalities have begun enforcing regulations on concrete washout waste, motivated by environmental conscientiousness as well as revenues generated by fees. Civil penalties of up to $10,000 a day have been imposed. Here at Outpak Washout, we continually receive calls regarding jobs that are requiring washouts in their specs.

While we spend most of our time staying up to date on EPA compliance and educating our customers, we thought an article highlighting other benefits would be appropriate. Here are 4 reasons (other than compliance) to use Outpak Washouts. 1. Portability – Outpak Washouts come banded and folded in a patented origami
Outpak Washout – Thinking Outside AND Inside the Box As the North American construction sector continues to grow, environmental concerns spike. Concrete washout is leftover residue created from rinsing concrete truck chutes, and the washout from a construction site is full of toxic materials that should not be anywhere near groundwater sources. There are different solutions in place, but new ones are needed, especially considering growing enforcement of the federal Clean Water Act. Outpak Washout, the originator of the portable, disposable washout, has a solution that is simple and cost-effective. Company Chief Executive Officer and Founder Bob Eason developed a box for containing concrete washout, and it is poised to make a huge impact in the green initiatives of storm water protection. We spoke with Bob about his ideas and
