RE: disposal of ink cans and plastics 5/9/00 Brad: We checked around for a metal recycler and found one willing to take our metal 5 pound ink cans. We take some additional steps though: 1) we make sure that they are RCRA clean with aspecial can scraper device we had made for us, and 2) we crush the cans so that they are not perceived to contain anything. I have a feeling that the ability to recycle these cans may hinge on locality. You'll just have to see what is locally available to your facility. I have no good answers for plastic containers as of this time. Hope this helps. Jeffrey R. Adrian Director, Environment & Safety The John Roberts Company
