Environmental preservation is becoming even more important as our world grows. At Infiltrator Systems, technology complements nature's own processes for recycling wastewater. For over twenty years we have applied science and technology to further the onsite industry’s goals of improved public health and better water quality. While we continue to make septic systems healthier, more reliable and longer-lasting, we are committed to manufacture products that also help to conserve our precious natural resources.
As one of the top six recycling companies in the country, we are uniquely positioned to procure, certify, accept and process large quantities of plastic scrap. Our use of recycled plastic materials goes directly into our products instead of a landfill. Everyday we purchase and process post-consumer and post-industrial plastics to manufacture our products, putting over 150 million pounds of recycled plastics to better, environmentally-friendly use every year.
In addition to our use of recycled plastics, we take better care of the environment by offering an alternative product to crushed stone. As the leading and original manufacturer of alternative septic systems, we have helped pioneer a more efficient way to use the inherent capacity of the soil to manage wastewater. The use of our chambers in septic drain fields alone replaces 3 million tons of mined aggregate annually. Because our products do not require the use of stone, the environmental impact and job site disruption that stone causes is avoided.
Infiltrator Systems is the largest source of private sector funding for advancement of onsite technology. Our ongoing efforts to fund university research have allowed for a better understanding of the long-term performance of wastewater systems.
