APAC-Texas, Inc., Trotti & Thomson Division
APAC-Texas, In., Trotti & Thomson Division, converted from 55-gallon steel drums to reusable bulk containers for concrete curing compound. By purchasing concrete cure in 250-gallon reusable totes, we were able to eliminate the handling, storage, and most importantly the disposal of the 55-gallon steel drums.
Since the 55-gallon drums were not reusable and could not be recycled because they contained a resin-based concrete cure, we were able to eliminate the disposal of approximately 100 drums per year into the local landfills. The disposal of the compound residue in the drums had to be handled separately and placed in injection wells. Both these processes were eliminated.

Additional Information :
The savings in disposal costs from the drums and the curing compound residue resulted in a savings of approximately $6,000 per year.
