ABOUT KEY DOLLAR

In our nearly 60 years of operation, Key Dollar has evolved to better meet the specific needs of customers forming two distinct companies. Under Hank’s management Key Dollar Separator and Key Dollar Cab were formed to meet the needs of specific customers and their fields. In 2004 Hank decided to sell Key Dollar Cab to a local business man in order to put all of his focus into wastewater and better develop Key Dollar Separator and its machines. This decision was awarded by way of creating new patented and award winning machines.

In 2012 Hank made the decision that it was time to retire after over 60 years of inventing and running these businesses. Key Dollar Separator was then purchased by the same owner as Key Dollar Cab keeping the Key Dollar Family of businesses together. Key Dollar continues to build and innovate with the same principles and forward thinking originally introduced by Hank in the 1960’s and will continue to meet the needs of our existing and future customers alike.

RECYCLING

Key Dollar Separator helps reduce the environmental footprint from waste streams by maximizing the reuse of water. High liquid content of sludge from municipal and industrial wastewater treatment have a high impact on disposal costs.

“I would recommend Key Dollar to anyone because quality is their most important factor.”

Neil Michaels, National Frozen Food, Albany, Oregon

“Our Separator works very good and has saved us thousands of dollars of disposal cost. I highly recommend Key Dollar.”

Bill Phillipps, President, VJL Waste Management Services, Inc., Lucerne Valley, California

“We want to thank you for this machine. It is a “Deusie”. What is important is the fact that this machine has been basically trouble free since we received it. It has been used 360 days per year for years and we have run in excess of forty million gallons of septage through it with very few problems.”

 Les Elderidge, Tenelco, Inc., Lake Stevens, Washington

“My wastewater is pumped with a 7.5 hp centrifugal water pump through a big gun with 4″ PVC. It is pumped over a mile. This is only possible because there are no solids in the water, thanks to Key Dollar Separator.”

– Bob Nix

“In order to keep the Department of Environmental Quality satisfied after citizen complaints of the odor from the lagoon, lime treatment had to be applied until the odor was under control. Three years ago they put in two Key Dollar Micro-Screens and have not used lime since and have NO BAD ODOR SMELL! All their cannery water is pumped three miles out of town.

The Key Dollar machines operate using water it cleaned to clean its own screens – NO OTHER WATER NEEDED! They operate automatically. They turn on when the water comes on and turn off when the pump stops. The solids removed are spread on fields nearby and are not allowed to spoil. They can be spread on pasture, new cut hay or on ground to be cultivated. Neil Michael said he would be pleased to talk to anyone who had or has lagoon odor/smell problems.”
