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).

Good Luck

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 
be appreciated.
