Muffin Monster Sewage Garbage Separator

Here is a video with Mike Rowe with Dirty Jobs.  He is showing the latest and greatest tool added to our wastewater treatment plants.  Reason, people are flushing garbage into their septic tanks.  I know what you are thinking, “who would throw garbage down their toilet?”  I know, right?  But its a problem that destroys their process at the wastewater treatment plant.  You know, those giant tanks of sewage alongside the freeway.  Yep, those.  Now they pull samples out of our trucks and keep them for five years.  And if there is garbage in there, they won’t let us empty our trucks into their without running them through this special machine called the muffin monster.

Enjoy the 6 minute video, it’s so awesome.


Thanks for reading, and watching,
