Waste hydrocarbon contaminated rubber parts from autos



A remanufacturer of auto parts removes used rubber boots from the constant
velocity (CV) joints he remanufacturers. They are saturated in grease and
other hydrocarbons (all non-haz) and could lead leachate problems in the
landfill. They have recently been informed that they can no longer dispose
of them in this manner. Anyone have any other disposal options to consider?
Is this something that a cement kiln could burn? What about rubber
recycling?

Thanks for your help.
