National Container Services Pty Ltd (NCS) have submitted a works approval (Application Number 1004271) to Evironment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA). It’s for a proposed International Organization for Standardisation (ISO) tank container washing facility. It would be located at 4 Paramount Rd, Tottenham Victoria.

The process involves cleaning trace residue from empty ISO tank containers using a fit for purpose high-pressure washer. Once tanks are cleaned, they are independently inspected and appropriately certified for reuse. NCS proposes to wash five tanks at the facility per day and will operate 7:30 am – 4:00 pm Monday to Friday.
