About Enviro-Care 

Enviro-Care Company of Rockford Illinois is a headworks company supplying screening and solids/grit management equipment to the wastewater industry. Enviro-Care entered the market in 1972 with a line of grinders designed specifically for pump stations and CSO’s. It later introduced a reciprocating rake screen, solids dewatering equipment and conveyors. As North American treatment plants began to recognize the importance of headworks screening, Enviro-Care began its search for higher capture screening equipment.

Today Enviro-Care Company is the exclusive licensee in North America for SAVI S.r.l. of Mantua Italy. SAVI was founded in 1978 and is a worldwide leader in wastewater treatment equipment. The partnership with SAVI greatly expanded the Enviro-Care product line. With the addition of SAVI’s rotating drum screens for wastewater and MBR pre-treatment; a proprietary septage, FOG and sludge screening system dubbed the “Beast”; and multiple washing/dewatering options; Enviro-Care / SAVI products can be found providing the same exceptional quality and cost-effective technology in more North American wastewater applications than ever before.
