  • Halogens

  • Chromium

  • PCB's

  • Water

  • Lead

  • Flash Point

  • Arsenic Sulfur

  • Ash

  • Cadmium

  • Gravity

 

Laboratory parameters and test procedures include the following:

PCB's

In accordance with EPA-SW846-8082

Sulfur

Coulometric Titration

Total

Coulometric Titration

Chlorine Water

In accordance with ASTM D-95

Flash Point

An additional retained sample is taken and retained through the recycling life of the product.

 

Once the sample report details that the referenced batch is free of hazardous levels of contaminants, the entire "day tank" contents are transferred to larger storage tanks for energy recovery.

 

 

Customers receive an invoice denoting date of sample, date of pickup, and amount of product collected. All invoice and manifest data is detailed into one simple document. Annual collection gallonage reports are available upon request.
