As with any disposal issue, the generator would have to do a waste determination on the material - many of you know the drill - is it a listed waste? is it a charateristic waste? ignitable, corrosive, reactive, toxic

how much waste is being generated in a calendar month?

what size generator is it? CESQGs have less requirements under the rules for hazardous waste than SQGs or LQGs.

e-mail me privately for more info or to clarify

Here is a question from the recent PNEAC/SGIA screen printing
videoconference which was not answered on-air.
Can anyone help with an answer?

What would be the best way to dispose of old UV screen printing inks?

The questioner did not provide any additional information.
What are the disposal issues with UV inks?

Thanks for your help,
