Re: FW: Fibre drum disposal/recycler
You might want to contact the Reusable Industrial Packaging Association (RIPA).
RIPA promotes the safe, efficient and environmentally responsible design, manufacturing, collection, reconditioning, remanufacturing and reuse of reusable industrial packaging, including preparation for recycling at the end of its useful life.
RIPA's web site (www.reusablepackaging.org/) has a listing of reconditioners (including some from Canada). The listing includes the type of containers the reconditioner handles (includes fibre drums).

Hello P2tech Members,
I am looking for a company that can facilitate the disposal/recycling of 45
gallon fibre drums from a food processing plant in the St.Marys, Ontario,
Canada area (St.Marys is approximately 40 km NE of London, Ontario). The
drums in question are composed of a heavy cardboard with a metal ring at
the top and bottom for support. They were originally used to transport food
ingredients (relish, hot sauce...whatever the recipe required) and have
been thoroughly rinsed out. If anyone can provide some guidance, it would
