Reducing turn-around time for cleaning railcars.

Strategic Location.

Four major railroads intersect through Milwaukee, WI.

  • Union Pacific
  • Canadian Pacific
  • Canadian National
  • Wisconsin & Southern Railroad

We strategically positioned our permitted waste processing Milwaukee facility (map) and fleet operations to quickly access railroad spurs.

Equipment Designed for Railcar Cleaning.


Railroad spurs and railcars are usually easy to access. But sometimes not. So we invested in a diverse vehicle and equipment fleet to access “hard to reach” railroad spurs and remove the most difficult sludge build-up.

Pictured above is the The VacSimizer.  We designed and built this vacuum truck specifically for difficult cleaning projects like railcar cleaning.  This video gives a quick look at how the VacSimizer reduces costs and turn-around time for our clients.

Performing Railcar Cleaning to High Standards. 

Rail Car Cleaning Inspection

Our clients have strict standards of what a “clean” railcar is. So we developed a specific railcar cleaning procedure to meet these high standards.

This includes:

  • a confined space permit
  • documentation of “heel” or “remaining commodity”
  • photos when complete
  • a certificate of disposal/recycling.
