Hot Tub Removal by Rainier Junk Removal

PUYALLUP, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 / — It's time to take those old hot tubs out of your backyard and replace them with something more useful. Hot tub removal is a part of the process when you are ready to start fresh. Hot tubs are made from metal, insulation foam, plastic, and water to be recycled or disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Rainier Junk Removal has been helping homeowners in Puyallup, Washington remove their hot tub for years now! We will provide you with all the information you need about how we dispose of your spa cover and how to prep it for disposal.

If you're interested in recycling your spa cover instead of throwing it away, read on!

1. What is a hot tub made of?

Hot tubs are made of metal, insulation foam, plastic, and water. Spas are made of metal (typically steel) or fiberglass with a cover that is either polyester or vinyl, which contains PVC plastics. Hot tubs have an interior built-in pump to circulate the water while spas do not. Hot tubs also use electricity for heating, whereas spas use propane or natural gas. Hot tubs typically have seats and jets to massage your back, whereas spas do not, but they may be available as an optional add-on for a spa purchase.

2. How do you dispose of a hot tub?

Disposing of a hot tub is pretty straightforward. Make sure you take apart your hot tub by cutting it first to make to process easier. Once the hot tub is cut apart, remove any debris accumulated in the water and drain it. Hot tubs can be disposed of by taking them to a recycling center or hazardous waste facility for free.

3. How does Rainier Junk Removal dispose of your old hot tub?

Our team is professionally trained in removing old hot tubs. We make sure to take all precautions when taking apart your hot tub and taking it to the right place to be disposed of. This will save you, the homeowner, a great deal of time and money! Don't worry about renting a truck or saw to haul away your old tub when you can give Rainier Junk Removal a call!

4. What can I do with my old spa cover?

Your old spa cover can be recycled with your hot tub. If you're worried about water, don't sweat it! Hot tubs are drained of all their fluids before being disposed of, so there's nothing to worry about when recycling the covers.

5. Why should I recycle my spa cover and not throw it in the trash?

Spa covers should be recycled instead of thrown away because they are made of a material that will take hundreds of years to decompose.

The disposal process for hot tubs is very long and pricey, so by recycling your spa cover, you're helping make the world a cleaner place! Recycling just one old spa cover can save up to three cubic yards of landfill space.

If you are looking for an experienced team to remove your old hot tub, Rainier Junk Removal is here! To learn more about our junk removal services, give us a call today at 253-345-JUNK or visit our website

STP and STC announce the release of its newly developed EHS audit protocol for New South Wales, Australia

Latest EHS Regulations Updates Assist Companies to Achieve EHS Compliance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 29, 2021 / — STP ComplianceEHS (STP) and Specialty Technical Consultants (STC) announce the release of its recently updated EHS protocol for New South Wales, Australia. This audit protocol, which covers relevant national and State of New South Wales EHS requirements, was previously updated in March 2019. The regulatory date for the current release is March 2021.

Leading companies around the world use EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner. EHS audit protocols are prepared by STC in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific applications for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, STC has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.

STP and STC maintain leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:

The national Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995 were updated to incorporate new rules for charging refrigeration and air conditioning equipment which came into force on 1 January 2020 to support the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phase-down and reduce emissions of climate-damaging HFCs. These Rules ban the charging of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment with a higher global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant than the equipment was designed to use, with an exception for refrigeration or air conditioning equipment that is essential for health or public safety purposes where the design refrigerant is not available.

The national Product Emissions Standards Rules 2017 were updated to delay the commencement of the prohibition on supplying an emissions-controlled product that was due to commence on 1 July 2019 for 12 months, until 1 July 2020. The delay will allow an additional 12 months for suppliers and retailers to sell uncertified stock that was imported before the commencement of the import prohibition. Under the Product Emissions Standard Rules, certain propulsion marine engines and non-road engines are designated as “emissions-controlled products” which must be certified as meeting the Australian emissions standard, or a recognized foreign standard, in order to be imported or supplied in Australia.

The National Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 and the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Regulations 1990 were repealed and have been replaced by a new regulatory scheme for industrial chemicals under the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 and the Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules 2019.

The National Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 (assented to in March 2019) establishes a new regulatory scheme, the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS), for the importation and manufacture (introduction) of industrial chemicals in Australia. The AICIS replaced the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) on 1 July 2020. The AICIS establishes a new way of categorizing and introducing industrial chemicals that focuses the pre-introduction assessment on higher-risk chemical introductions and provides streamlined introduction pathways for lower-risk chemicals that are intended to reduce the regulatory burden for industry. It also focuses on post-introduction evaluation and monitoring to help maintain the protection of the health and safety of the public, workers, and the environment.

The National Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules 2019 (effective 1 July 2020) support the new industrial chemicals regulatory scheme established by the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019. These Rules set forth the technical and operational details and the requirements introducers must meet, including the requirement to categorize their chemicals that are not listed on the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals.

DPM Mining Inc. Announces the First of 3 EIN Press Releases for a SMART redesign of the South32 Hermosa Taylor Project.

19. Plan Views – 20ft Spacing

20. EMT 65t Truck - Operating Cost

21. Smart – Innovative Equipment

Taylor was redesigned to optimize productivity of SMART panel mining via a triple ramp system using 65t trolley trucks and Clark open pit waste rock for CRF.

The SMART redesign of the Taylor project will use a traditional ROI NPV approach to calculate the NPV benefits from eliminating dilution, increasing ore recovery while minimizing ESG mining risks.”

— Charles Gryba, Mining Engineer, Inventor quotes

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, July 29, 2021 / — DPM Mining Inc is pleased to announce that 3 EIN press releases will be issued which evaluate a SMART technical and economic audit of the Arizona Mining – now South32 owned Taylor sulphide orebody. The patented SMART platform coverts mining of a large orebody to a set of linked spreadsheets using ~1,140t SMART cells rather than a series of stopes and pillars. Penoles test mining proved that 15m wide SMART panels can be safety mined under CRF when confined by a concrete roof and posts. A Golder FLAC 3D analysis will calculate post and concrete roof loading using the results of CRF test program to make 500MPa bulk strength CRF from minesite sourced aggregate. Technical risks can be reduced by test mining 4 SMART cells under a concrete roof to confirm post and roof loading. Also, initial SMART panels can be mined by driving a 5m wide drift then controlled slashing to a 15m panel width while monitoring post loading. See EIN DPM press releases #1 to #6 for technical details.

The Hermosa project is an ideal project to evaluate DPM – SMART economics vs a modern 10,000tpd mine designed for blasthole stoping using paste fill with mine access via a shaft and service ramp to a 1,100m depth. The engineering firm AMC was in the process of completing an updated PEA level Technical Report – which was posted on Sedar Jan 16th, 2018. C. Gryba meet with then AZM President Jim Gowans. Jim approved re-blocking the Taylor 100 million ton PEA sulphide orebody. The AMC principal geologist, within 1 week, re-blocked the entire Taylor orebody to the SMART 25ft x 25ft x 20ft high cell size and generated a color coded NSR table for each 20ft lift. The Taylor orebody has 80,000 red SMART cells between the 400ml and 1000ml. Outlining the red and green cells, indicates that 90% of the cells are grouped suitable for SMART paneling and 10% indicate smaller ore zones. Mining 8 SMART cells per day fills the planned 10,000tpd mill. See Image 19 for typical 20ft high lifts of SMART cells and NSR color coding.

The AMC PEA report indicated 2 SMART design hurdles. The AZM shaft design would require SMART ore and CRF to be re-handled multiple times. Secondly, SMART mines 15m wide panels using cemented rock fill not paste fill. Asarco had planned an oxide open pit for the Central Zone thus rock aggregate is available on site to manufacture CRF. SMART mining productivity is optimized when an ore truck is loaded at a panel face, trucked directly to surface with CRF backhauled to fill a nearby panel. A ramp capable of hauling 10,000tpd was required. Gryba meet with Atlas Copco (now Epiroc) and Sandvik. Sandvik was concentrating on designing tele-remote diesel and battery powered equipment. Atlas Copco had added a lithium battery assist to their proven Kiruna electric trolley trucks; this provided a potential solution for ramp haulage to a 1500m depth.

Gryba then designed an autonomous SMART triple ramp system to optimize the productivity and design limitations of 65t trolley – battery assist truck. Only the dedicated up and down production ramps are equipped with trolley lines. The third ramp was designed for 2 way service traffic using battery or future hydrogen powered equipment. Ramp interchanges were designed every 100m vertically to provide secondary production ramp access to 30m levels. Only lithium battery power is used to access SMART panels, loaded trucks drive down ramp to the next lower interchange to re-attach to the trolley line.

Atlas Copco detail costed the ramp haulage system to the 500ml and 1,000ml based on the EM654 truck. Each trolley truck is capable of hauling 65tph or ~1,000tpd from the 1,000ml. Based on the PEA $.08 kwh power cost, a round trip of ore plus CRF backhaul costs $47hr or $.72t. Hoisting 10,000tpd of ore from 1,000ml in 18 hours requires a peak horsepower of 4,860kw and RMS of 3,624kw. Skipping 555tph x $.08kwh costs $.52t skipped vs $.48t for up ramp trolley power cost from the same depth. SMART panel mining costs were then calculated at $25.15t as per EIN DPM #6 press release. See Image 20 for trolley truck costs.

SMART mining combined with the triple ramp – trolley system allows for many incremental Smart productivity and cost improvements. Three interconnected ramps reduce congestion plus allows concrete floors and trolley lines to be installed while advancing the 3 ramp faces via the 2 other ramps. The third ramp also allows equipment such as the CEMI roof system and a SMART ITH drill to be stored near the face. The SMART posthole drill can drill a .5m diameter cut thus longer rounds can be taken. The CEMI designed roof allows ground control work to proceed in parallel with face drilling. The advance rate for all 3 ramps can increase by 1m or more per day. See Image 21 for pictures.

The ramp system has to be cost competitive. The PEA 10,000tpd shaft was estimated by AMC to cost $162.3 million. The 8,000 meter long, 5.5m x 5.5m service ramp at $4,500m boosts the Capex cost to $198.3 million. A SMART trolley ramp requires $1,000m for concrete floors and shotcreting plus $1,000m for each trolley line increasing costs to $6,500m. The SMART ramp design to the 1,000ml requires 24,000m of 5.5m x 5.5m ramp plus 10 ramp interchanges at 400m each. The SMART Capex cost for 28,000m of ramp is estimated at $168m plus $35m for 10 trolley trucks or $203m. Basically the same CAPEX cost as shaft option to the 1,000ml but a much more flexible and production scalable design.

Rather than keeping the SMART technology confidential 10 EIN press releases will be issued to explain SMART mining to both the financial and mining communities. A SMART financial evaluation of the AZM Taylor orebody will highlight some of the financial and technical advantages of the DPM patented technology.

The New 2021 Complete Move Out Checklist

Learn The Complete Move Out Checklist

Learn The Complete Move Out Checklist

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 / — Moving out of your apartment or house can be a stressful time. You need to make sure you have everything packed up, labeled, and ready for the move. It is important that you plan ahead, so you don’t forget anything in a state of panic on moving day! Use this checklist to help make sure you have everything covered!

1. Make a list of all the items you want to take with you

Creating lists to organize your move is a great way to make moving easier. You can list all the items you want to take with you. List everything that will fit in your car/cargo van, create a second list of things to take on the bus, train, or plane, and finally make a list of what needs to be rented (i.e., UHaul Truck).

2. Pack your clothes and toiletries in suitcases, backpacks, or duffel bags

If you have luggage lying around, utilize it for the move! Try to fit as much as you can in suitcases or duffel bags so you can spend less on moving boxes. If you’re not sure what to pack in your suitcase, try packing a few outfits and toiletries that are appropriate for the climate of your new home.

Suppose you don’t have suitcases or backpacks lying around – no problem! Pack clothes into plastic grocery bags. Remember: tie each bag off with string so they won’t open up during the drive.

3. Label boxes for each room in your new home

Labeling is a key step when it comes to moving. This helps keep everything organized so you can place boxes in the correct room of your new home.

Labeling boxes is a straightforward process. Just use packing tape, markers, or stickers to label the outside of each box with the room it belongs in (e.g., living room/study). You can also write on masking tape and place it over the top of each box.

4. Purchase moving supplies like bubble wrap, packing tape, markers, and scissors

Once you have everything listed and packed into as many suitcases as possible, it is time to purchase moving supplies. You will need tape to seal the boxes, bubble wrap to protect appliances and fragile items, markers for labeling furniture that needs to be assembled in your new home, and scissors for cutting through packing tape.

5. Gather all of your important documents

Make sure to keep all important documents in one spot. You will need your utility bill, insurance information, and anything else you may need to go ahead with the move. Things like identification paperwork (passports, ID cards, etc.) should stay with you during your move – not in a moving truck.

6. Plan out how many trips it will take to move everything from one house to another

To budget for gas and rental trucks, you should have an idea of how many trips you’ll take for your move. It’s best to overestimate if you can because the cost will be lower than under-estimating, and having to do more runs in a moving truck or gas costs will be higher than anticipated.

7. Hire G Grace Junk Removal to clean out your home

If you have too many items that cannot make the move with you, call G Grace Junk Removal! Our team is experienced with home and estate cleanouts, so all you have to do is give us a call, and we will remove your junk! We’ll remove any junk, yard debris, or unwanted items from your home at an affordable price, and we can also donate any items that are still in good shape.

The State of Ohio will soon be cleaner, and greener thanks to a new waste oil reclamation, and recycling program being launched in the State’s Capitol.

Clean Air Biodiesel is recycling waste cooking oil into a clean-burning fuel that powers the big engines that move our people, and goods, as well as providing services to our community.”

— Bruce Burke, Director of Marketing

COLUMBUS, OHIO, USA, July 29, 2021 / — The State of Ohio will soon be cleaner, and greener thanks to a new waste oil reclamation, and recycling program being launched in the State’s Capitol.

Clean Air Biodiesel (CAB) is the company rolling out this powerful new initiative for the City of Columbus and ramping their fleet up to provide service to surrounding areas.

The program is being setup using guidelines provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Federal EPA program guidelines may be found at

Used and waste cooking oils will be reclaimed by the Clean Air company, then recycled and transformed into a plant-based fuel known as Biodiesel.

An organic chemistry process, known as Transesterification, is used to convert the discarded, used oil into a clean burning, non-polluting diesel fuel.

“We’re helping clean up the city in two ways,” explains Bruce Burke, Director of Marketing for CAB.

“First we are collecting used cooking oils that could end up in the city’s sewer system, and landfills”. He added “More importantly, we are turning that waste oil into a clean-burning fuel that power the big engines that move our people, and goods, as well as providing services to our community.”

Clean Air Biodiesel is acquiring a fleet of vehicles, with Tanker #1 starting service in August. The company is launching an outreach program to restaurants, and surrounding cities, as well as, housing, and apartment communities for the collection of used oil.

People in the community will be able to drop off their used cooking oil, with clean, well-lit reclamation bins being erected outside the new headquarters at 31 Merritt Street. Interested parties can sign up on the company’s website for waste oil pickup service. The signup form is available at

Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon, which can be used to change the world.” Clean Air Biodiesel wants to educate concerned citizens, the local community, and area government officials about the potential power that can be harnessed by reclaiming, and recycling this otherwise harmful, and useless waste oil.

Using their proprietary process, all collected waste oil will be purified, processed, and polished by Clean Air into B100 certified biodiesel, which meets the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D-6751 production specification. Demand for this green fuel product in North America is expected to increase from 1 billion gallons to 2.4 billion gallons annually by 2025.


Clean Air Biodiesel (CAB) is Ohio's newest Biodiesel Producer. The company's new 30,000 square foot headquarters is ramping up production to manufacturer up to 20 million gallons annually. In addition to biofuel production, Clean Air is the area's premier waste oil reclamation and recycling company.

Based in Columbus, we are helping to clean up the state of Ohio. We transform this waste oil to produce biofuels to help power and heat Ohio businesses, and homes. Using an organic chemistry process called transesterification, we turn waste vegetable oil into a greener fuel called Biodiesel.

Help us clean up Ohio! Contact us today to learn more about our oil reclamation project for the city of Columbus and the state of Ohio. Waste cooking oil is the by-product of running a popular eatery. However, most restaurateurs are busy with their customers and don't have time to worry about this aspect of their business.

But it does have eviromental impact, and thats where we come in. Clean Air Biodiesel's end-to-end managed oil collection and recycling program simplifies the process and significantly contributes to a clean, greener tomorrow. Our uniformed, professionally trained, and licensed operators utilize the best tools, and techniques to cleanly and effectively collect your your used cooking oil.

The Federal Government's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines and regulations are closely followed to assure our customers of a positive experience. With your help we all can look forward to a cleaner, and greener state. Clean Air Biodiesel is a gold level member of the Clean Fuels Ohio initiative.

The Company’s Machine Intelligent Pipe Inspection Tool Used for Third Time to Support Aggressive I/I Reduction Program by the County

Electro Scan is scalable, repeatable and quantitative. We believe in the technology.”

— Richard Cummings, Division Director of Field Maintenance Services

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, US, July 29, 2021 / — Electro Scan Inc. announced today that work has begun on the Company's third major sewer inspection project for Hillsborough County, Florida. The County first adopted the Company’s award-winning Focused Electrode Leak Location technology, known as FELL, in 2019 to locate and quantify unwanted sewer infiltration, bringing the total inspection length performed for the County to over 40 miles, or 208,000 linear feet.

Hillsborough County is located in the west central coastline of the State of Florida with a population of 1.3 million, making it the fourth-most populous county in Florida.

Managing over 1,400 miles of gravity sewers and 788 lift stations, which transports & treats over 42 million gallons per day, tidal and wet-weather infiltration can oftentimes enter the sewer system through cracks, defective joints, and services connections, with additional risk to the underground aquifer system.

In previous projects, the County has seen that the robust FELL data sets have documented that a small fraction of the pipes inspected are contributing to most of the unwanted inflow and infiltration flows entering the system.

Richard Cummings, the Division Director of Field Maintenance Services has remarked “We are always open to utilizing new technology to improve operations here in Hillsborough County. Electro Scan is interesting and innovative! In the past we performed expansive amounts of slip lining to correct physical defects. Our goal is to reduce I/I and the first objective is finding out where it is happening. Electro Scan is scalable, repeatable and quantitative. We believe in the technology and hope to utilize Electro Scan in all future I/I studies and if possible, procure Electro Scan for in-house work as well.”

Electro Scan Inc. can be FOLLOWED on LinkedIn for future project updates.

The new project underscores the County’s proactive approach to I/I reduction. For well over 3 years now, even through the COVID-19 pandemic, the County has been installing over 800 water meters per month at new housing developments. This rapid population growth is adding new flows to the County’s existing advanced wastewater treatment facilities, thus making I/I flow reduction a top priority.

“The County has realized the significance of FELL inspection to bring truly data-driven decision making to help support capital spending prioritization,” offered Mike Condran, PE, Electro Scan’s Southeast Vice President.

“We are honored to return for this third major assignment with the County which demonstrates the level of trust in how FELL data can directly benefit the County’s bottom line,” continued Condran.

Following previous successes elsewhere in the County’s 1,400-mile collection network, this current project is targeted to specific areas of the Falkenburg Sewer Basin where excessive I/I was identified by the company's engineering partner McKim & Creed, Inc.

“We are delighted to know that the County has been able to use FELL data so effectively from the earlier projects and are excited to continue this very productive collaboration to reduce I/I,” commented Chuck Hansen, Chairman & Founder of Electro Scan.

“This third major project opens a new chapter for how the County plans to use FELL technology to their advantage and avoid unnecessary capital spending on pipes that are not contributing to infiltration,” added Hansen.

The striking results from Electro Scan’s first two projects, totaling more than 30 miles, showed that only about one-third of the pipes were contributing nearly 75% of the potential I/I flows. The data generated in this new project will allow the County to identify only those pipes contributing to I/I.

In these unprecedented times where capital budgets are strained, setting prudent spending priorities is essential.

Unlike closed-circuit television (CCTV) inspection, which simply cannot effectively find or measure I/I sources, Electro Scan’s award-winning technology brings a new level of actionable condition assessment data.

During the previous two inspection projects, Electro Scan completed a side-by-side comparison of FELL data against Pipeline Assessment Certification Program (PACP) reports prepared by the County’s third-party CCTV inspection firm.

While NASSCO PACP reports indicated less than two dozen pipe & lateral defects contributing to I/I, in contrast FELL data showed in excess of 1,200 defects.

More importantly, FELL data located each defect to within 3/8 of an inch (1cm) and quantified the potential flow from each defect in Gallons per Minute (GPM), the most commonly used metric in the water industry.

“One powerful aspect of FELL technology over legacy CCTV inspection is the ability to immediately identify which pipes are leaking the most,” remarked Mike App, Vice President of Operations.

“Then, using our cloud-based Critical Sewers® platform, the County and its engineers can make better decisions about the most cost-effective repair or rehabilitation method for each pipe,” continued App.

Last month, Electro Scan Inc. was awarded PRODUCT OF THE YEAR, by Environment & Energy Leaders, and in January 2021 was selected LEAK DETECTION SOLUTION OF THE YEAR FOR 2021, by IoT Breakthrough. Both awards recognized the Company's release of its non-acoustic machine intelligent solutions for precisely locating and quantifying leaks pressurized drinking water pipelines, needed to help manage utility's Non-Revenue Water and drought conditions.

Given the past project successes with FELL technology, the County is looking to now add Electro Scan’s innovative inspection equipment to retrofit one of its CCTV inspection trucks and perform the work in-house with its own labor forces. Many other municipalities across the country have adopted this approach to modify its inspection fleet and conduct their own FELL testing.

Most recently, the City of Decatur, Alabama added FELL technology to their own inspection vehicle, and in just 7 months has completed nearly 160,000 linear feet of gravity sewer inspections to support their aggressive I/I reduction efforts.

While conducting low-voltage conductivity FELL inspection almost exclusively in gravity pipes to date, the company recently added the capabilities to now inspect potable pressure transmission mains and sewerage force mains. Using a proprietary pipe insertion and retrieval mechanism, this ground-breaking addition to its technology lineup expands Electro Scan’s capabilities to support pipe inspection needs across the board for complex pressure pipe inspections.

The company is active across the US, Canada, the UK and western Europe, Japan, and Australia, with more recent additions in Singapore, China, and Brazil. These increased service offerings around the world demonstrate the intense demand for accurate, reliable, and repeatable pipe leak detection with utilities and industries everywhere.

Electro Scan Inc., is a leading supplier of machine-intelligent pipeline assessment products and services for the water & wastewater pipeline market, developing proprietary pipe condition assessment equipment and delivering field services, and cloud-based applications that automatically locate, measure, and report leaks typically not found by legacy inspection methods. Entirely self-funded, the company is a leading provider of CleanTech solutions providing needed Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) asset stewardship.
