Printech Archives, March 1998: Rag Program

Rag Program

I am looking for some thoughts on a rag reclamation program, where we would
purchase a few months supply and ship out and have them cleaned and returned.
I am in the process of researching this with our current waste company, so
it's not as much as where I do it, but how feasible it is. One of our major
concerns revolves around the fact that we believe that the rag & rug service
we now use washes our solvent rags and the wash ends up in the is that solvent
and all ends up in the sewer!! Is this a normal process for the rag & rug
people? Are they doing the "right" thing, or just looking the other way? Any
thoughts would be appreciated.
We average approx 2500 per week
