Excess inventory, obsolete products, defective products, discontinued packaging; these are just a few of the reasons that businesses wish to remove products from inventory. You could send this material to a landfill. However this is costly and there is no guarantee of product destruction.

One of the more important challenges facing manufacturers today is finding cost-effective and secure disposal options for consumer product waste. Careful consideration must be given to the selection of specific methods. Numerous factors weigh into this decision, including:

  • Necessity of assured/certified product destruction to eliminate re-entry to marketplace
  • Corporate and local community directives to reduce land disposal
  • Elimination of future liabilities associated with land disposal

Depending on the product, there are many different alternative disposition technologies available. These options include:

  • Non-hazardous incineration
  • Recycle/reuse
  • Off-site wastewater treatment
  • Aerosol recycling
  • Ingredient capture for reuse in other processes

Manufacturers and distributors of solid and liquid consumer products which should be considered for alternative disposition include:

  • Health care products
  • Creams and lotions
  • Shampoos
  • OTC Pharmaceuticals
  • Toiletries
  • Cosmetics
  • Household chemicals
  • Other commodity waste

Manufacturers and distributors of consumer products may require disposition of off-spec, expired, or returned products, such as:

  • Powders, sprays, liquids and gels
  • Residue from cosmetic manufacturing
  • Aerosol products (with or without residue)
  • Plastics and other polymers
  • Process water, alcohol or solvent
