Re: Cleaning axle grease from steel drums

Why not have the manufacturer take the drum back for re-filling?

Subject:  Cleaning axle grease from steel drums

What methods/chemicals would be suitable for cleaning steel drums from
axle grease, other than petroleum based solvents? Are there any
available washers for this purpose? One of the problems is that most of the
steel recyclers that have been contacted want triple rinsing.
