To All:

I wanted to let you know about an innovative and cost saving program that has
been set up by PIA of Texas for their members. The following is a brief
description and contact information for Matt Kaarela, who set up the program
and is coordinating it.

Gary Jones
GATF

Regarding waste ink, I set up a group buying program for PIA-Texas members
with a waste hauler/fuels blender called HEAT. The negotiated price for
waste ink is very competitive at $150 for one drum and $90 for 10 or more.
IF you combine waste solvent with waste ink, the price drops even further
to $81 for one drum and $45 for 10 or more. If most printers are paying the
$180-$500 you mentioned, other affiliates might want to consider setting up
a similar group buying program.

Keep up the good work.
