Why recycle on site?

Shipping your waste chemicals costs you money. You have to replace the spent material at full market prices. You have to pay for containers and storage costs. You have to pay for transportation and disposal. And – you have insurance and compliance costs for generating the waste.

Disposal of waste chemicals or solvents creates risk to your organization. Each gallon that is disposed of creates hazardous waste that must be reported, packaged, transported, and disposed of. There are also very significant risks, not only to your bottom line, but risk of spills, releases, accidents, or other incidents.

From an environmental sustainability perspective, burning precious materials is a tremendous waste. The disposal process also contributes to air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Our recycling systems allow you to recycle the chemicals or solvents on-site. We provide the equipment and installation service. You only need to provide us with power, water and air service to the machine. We then maintain the equipment at our cost. You purchase the recycled solvent from us at a discount.

The benefits are clear:

  • Reduced amount of hazardous waste generated
  • Reduced cost of disposal of waste
  • Reduced cost of virgin material
  • Reduced risk of incident in the disposal process
  • No need to order, ship, or receive virgin material
