Reliance offers an easy-to-use, Spent Solvent Disposal Program for companies interested in disposing of their n-propyl bromide (nPB).
Qualification is Simple. To qualify, a Waste Profile needs to be prepared and a sample provided to WRR Environmental Services, Inc. The Waste Profile and a representative sample of the spent solvent resulting from your cleaning process are sent to WRR for review to determine eligibility for participation. Shortly thereafter, you will be notified in writing of approval to participate in the program.
Typically only shipping costs. There is no charge to determine qualification in the program (and most companies easily qualify). Once you qualify to participate in the program, except for the cost of transportation, there is no fee for disposal of spent solvent. Incidentally, in most instances, the spent solvent can ship by common carrier as a non-hazardous material.
Each shipment will require an authorization number and shipping label from WRR and an MSDS. To send your spent solvent in for disposal, you will need to obtain an authorization number and shipping label from WRR. Your Reliance Representative will be happy to assist you in this step. Attach the authorization shipping labels provided by WRR to each of the drums of spent solvent and then they are ready for transport to WRR's facility for disposal.
No, you will not need to re-qualify if your spent solvent waste stream stays the same composition. Your qualification into the program is for an ongoing stream of the same composition as your initial sample. If your company changes your cleaning process such that the composition of spent solvent stream changes (addition components or significantly different amounts of the components of the approved waste stream) then your company will need to re-apply for qualification for participation of the changed waste stream in the program.
