Did you know that you are at risk of environmental liability every time you toss out hazardous-waste-laden rags, paper towels, clay & synthetic absorbents and other materials? It's true.
Every company that sends hazardous waste materials to landfills could have to pay for environmental clean-up should a landfill fail to contain contaminants. Cleanup costs could run into the millions of dollars. Worse, the environmental impact could be felt for generations ...read more >
There is a difference between Coyne reusable printer and furniture towels and all others. That difference benefits and helps protect your business.
What are the changes to the EPA Shop Towel Rule?
The rule revision under RCRA conditionally excludes from further regulation solvent-contaminated wipes that are cleaned and reused. ASSURANCE: Coyne meets and exceeds all regulations for handling, processing and transporting your reusable towels.
How does Coyne safely handle and transport solvent-laden towels?
ASSURANCE: Though removal of free liquids remains your responsibility, Coyne transports all soiled towels in UN1H2/Y200/S compliant sealed and labeled containers. From pickup to delivery, Coyne meets or exceeds all regulatory requirements.
Does Coyne send anything to landﬁlls that could pose a risk to my business?
ASSURANCE: Coyne does not send volatile contaminants to a landﬁll which avoids landﬁll liability. All volatile materials removed from your towels are collected in our unique waste-to-energy system and beneﬁcially reused as supplemental fuel in cement kilns. Only Coyne avoids landﬁll.
How should I document compliance within the 180-day wipes accumulation time limit?
ASSURANCE: Coyne’s invoice or service contract that describes the frequency and pick-up schedule is the easiest and most convenient method to ensure you are in compliance.
