Safety Data Sheets

If your containers have not been triple rinsed we must review the previous contents of the container.
Some products are harder to remove from the container than others.
If the containers previously held hazmat material, we must label the shipping documents accordingly.
We may accept these products if they have been triple rinsed, or are water soluble.

  • Resins
  • Glue
  • Polymer
  • Friction Reducer
  • Agriculture products

If your company possesses containers with one the above products we still urge you to follow through with the process.
There’s a good chance we will still be able to find some value in your in containers if they maintain their structural integrity.
All agriculture containers MUST BE TRIPLE RINSED!

Turn Around Time & Minimum QTY Requirements?

What is the minimum quantity of IBC Totes I can recycle?

Minimums QTY Requirements:

  • 10 containers or less – You may ship the containers to one of our locations, but we do not provide any rebates or cover any of the transportation costs. We can schedule the pickup for a small fee.
  • 11 to 24 containers – Depending on your proximity to one of our locations, we may be able to pick them up for free BUT it may take awhile. You may ship the containers in or pay a small fee to have them removed.
  • 30 to 45 containers – We are able to pick these up for free, but unable to provide a rebate due to the fact that we are unable to fill a full truck load and not maximizing the space.
  • 50 to 60 containers – We are able to pick up for free and provide a rebate based on the condition and quality of the container.

What is the turn around time?

Container Expectations and Requirements

What type of condition to expect the totes to be in?

We are not a trash company! If you want your containers picked up promptly you will be sure to take good care of them otherwise you’ll be paying a waste company $1000s to scrap them.

We reward our generators with good service and rebates when the containers are in excellent shape.

If you’re vendor is providing you with B grade wood pallet totes, make them pay for the removal, it’s not your fault they cheaped out and purchased something that’s impossible to get rid of. 

Follow these guidelines and you’ll never see a container on your plant floor again: 

  • No Damage to inner tank
  • No Severe Residue or Oxidation
  • No Stained Bottles
  • No Severe Structural Damage
  • No Wooden Pallet
  • MUST BE RCRA EMPTY!

Unacceptable Containers

The containers below we try to avoid. We understand that not every tote is going to be perfect when we pick them up:

  • We do not charge for a few bad totes
  • Unrepairable Metal Cages
  • Broken Pallets
  • NON EMPTY CONTAINERS – CHECK THE TOTES BEFORE YOU LOAD THEM AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE EMPTY!
  • IF YOU LOAD A NON RCRA EMPTY CONTAINER YOU WILL BE FORCED TO PAY FOR THE COST OF THE DISPOSAL FEE OR SHIPPING COST BACK TO YOUR FACILITY.

Residue and Contamination

Containers that are NON RCRA EMPTY will be rejected at the dock doors and shipped back to you at your own expense.  We want your EMPTY containers not the product you purchased. 

Pick Up Process

Step 1: Confirmation Call

Once you’ve filled out all of the necessary information and uploaded your pictures and SDS, you can expect a call to confirm and review your request. We will walk through our process and affirm your needs and expectations.

Step 2: Approval

After your container specs and paperwork have been processed, and your containers meet our standards. We will begin to process a pickup with an outside carrier or customer.

Step 3: BOL

Before your containers are removed we will schedule and confirm. You will receive a BOL from us via email, and coordinate the transaction. 

Step 4: Inventory Check Ins

From that point on, we’ll be checking in with you regularly and continue to schedule routine container services.

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to reach out to our account manager.
