Mobile Ink Recycling

Greetings... some good info flying on ink wastes. Here's a question based on
a project we're considering in New England:

I'm looking for feedback on ink recycling, especially the sort of mobile unit
that pulls a semi up to a printer's dock and recycles many drums of waste ink
into remilled ink and waste.

I'm especially interested in
- regulatory or permit problems encountered,
- how careful or reliable the recycler operators are,
- quality of the recycled inks,
- quantity and type of inks being recycled etc.

Once I get some information on how this process is faring in other areas,
I'll be glad to share the outline of our ideas; who knows, there may be
folks who might want to participate.
