Environmental Benefits:

The environmental benefits of the solvent recycling program are many. Beginning with 1989, an average of 36,000lbs. per year of used solvent was sent for disposal. Since implementation in 1993, all used solvent has been recycled, thus virtually eliminating all off-site disposal. Solvent recycling has resulted in the elimination of the need for additional waste permitting, reduction of waste disposal costs, elimination of highway transport of waste, and reduction in the purchase of new solvent.
