If you have 5 minutes a day, you have enough time to recycle your solvents.

That may sound like an exaggeration but recycling doesn’t take much time. A good recycler does most of the work for you. You just need to give it solvent to recycle, push the start button and….that’s it. The recycler does the rest.

Come back later and collect the pure, recycled solvent.

Q: Do I need to change how we collect our waste solvents?

Yes, you will need to segregate your used solvents. Each used solvent needs its own waste collection container.
