Barge Cleaning

Cleaning barges not only requires the effective removal of residual cargo, but the ability and awareness to safely remove, contain, and dispose of materials that may impact the surrounding environment. At Brennan, we understand the importance of an inland riverways compliant barge cleaning program and will provide harbor-specific methods to collect, dispose of, or even treat impacted water and residuals.
