Unfortunately this is an issue for many companies. SOME suppliers will take
them back as long as they are thoroughly cleaned and undamaged. You may want
to ask your supplier about this. Also, there may be an area plastics
manufacturer that is interested in the material to use in their process

You did not indicate what state you are located in. If you reply to my e-mail
with that information I may be able to direct you to a resource/assistance
person who can assist you. Otherwise there are state funded materials
networks available. These networks have listings for "available" materials
"wanted" materials. Typically it is free of charge to advertise with these
exchange networks. This may be a source for you.

Good luck and I look forward to hearing back from you.

quarter. Our recycler, Proactive Ink Recycling returns our ink to us in 30lb
plastic totes. We are looking to find a way of recycling or using
150 buckets every 3 months. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
