Solvent Waste Recycling In-House - How To Get Started

Posted by Colin Darcel

Mar 9, 2017 2:00:00 PM

If you’re in an industry which produces waste, you likely already have an understanding of your options when it comes to disposing of that waste. If you’re like most companies, you store the waste product (taking up valuable space) until you have enough of it to call in a company to pick-up the waste and dispose of it.

They literally make money from your waste which you paid them to pick up. There is obviously a more efficient and cost effective way to deal with your solvent, water, oil or other hazardous liquid wastes. But where do you get started?
