Snow Melting Service

Are you paying for snow relocation off-site? There’s a better answer.

meltingInterstate Removal’s SND-580 and SND-1800 snow melters are the newest and best performing snow melters in the upper Midwest. Our snow melting system also has a weir filtration system that filters out trash, sediment, chemicals, and debris before placing the much cleaner water in the storm water system.

Performance SND-580 “Ramp Melter”

With this melter, Interstate is able to navigate into places like parking ramps that are due to weight or size restrictions difficult to access.

  • Melts up to 14 dump truck loads of snow per hour
  • Equipment mobility equals cost savings and efficiency
  • Reduces snow hauling cost as much as 40% compared to off-site hauling
  • Eliminates asphalt and concrete damaging truck convoys
  • Reduces liability through much less equipment working on site
  • Eliminates snow piles on property, removing the need for de-icing due to freeze thaw

Performance SND-1800

  • Melts up to 40 dump truck loads of snow per hour
  • Equipment mobility equals cost savings and efficiency
  • Reduces snow hauling cost as much as 40% compared to off-site hauling
  • Eliminates asphalt and concrete damaging truck convoys
  • Reduce liability through much less equipment working on site
  • Eliminates snow piles on property removing the need for de-icing due to freeze thaw

Environmental Benefits

  • Filters water and greatly reduces amount of pollutants entering storm drains
  • Quiet operation – operates at less than 70 db, allowing for day and night service
  • Greatly reduces exhaust emissions by eliminating trucking convoys
  • Controls runoff of melting snow properly, directing it into the storm water system and not into lakes, rivers, and aquifers

Dollars and Sense:

The SND 1800 can melt up to 600 yards of snow per hour at an average cost of $2.50 per yard.

In comparison, you would need 15 20-yard dump trucks hauling 2 rounds per hour at an average cost $95.00 per hour to move the same amount of snow.  The typical cost of snow dumping is an additional $20.00 per truckload of snow.

  • Trucking Cost = $1,350 (per hour)
  • Snow dump fees = $600.00 (30 loads)
  • Snow dozer for pushing up snow piles = $150.00 (per hour)

Trucking Cost = $2,100.00

Snow Melting Cost = $1,200

Snow Melting Savings = $900.00 (42% savings)
