    Best to shovel it up & bag it as you work. I save old empty kiln dry sand plastic bags for the job.

    Even working towards the street I would do the same to stop as much sludge as possible going down storm drains.

    Do you just use a pressure washer and plain water or any chemicals?

    Depends what washer you use. You can apply chems like tfr, chloars etc but on most jobs I find plain tap water works well for me.

    customers tap and buffer tank as my washer runs at 15ltrs a min so even using a 1000 bowser it would not last very long.
