A clarification on my previous message. What I should have said is:

Printers whom I have worked with whom take the risk of
environmental liability seriously either:
1. Use launderable towels and use good practices to manage used
towels and solvent; or
2. Use disposable wipes but keep them separate from solid waste, so
they can be disposed of via combustion rather than landfilling.
