I reviewed the archives, but didn't see what I was looking for: I have a client that recycles some of their ink but can't use all of it. It's non-hazardous. One of the e-mails in the archives mentioned co-mingling it...but didn't give any details. Cost to dispose to fuel blending is about $145/drum. Has anyone got any other ideas on where we can go with about 22 drums of non-haz, mixed colors (mostly black) ink from a lithographic print operation? Would a technical school be interested in recycling such ink onsite for their programs, if they had the on-site equipment to recycle the ink to a black for non-commercial use?
(Just wondering if I could suggest this as a SEP project (to buy the recycle equipment and give to a technical school) should a printer get into such a negotiation. Am I barking up the wrong tree here?) Any cheaper disposal ideas for this ink waste would be appreciated.
