Tech Tip Tuesday: How do you properly dispose of ink?

Wondering how to properly dispose of ink? We dispose of bulk quantities of “used” ink with pouring it into a 55 gallon drum (for mass collection).  The drum is collected by a waste management company, contracted on a bi-weekly pickup, for disposal in compliance with Department of Transportation (DOT), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and state regulations.

Smaller quantities, e.g.: paper towels used for cleaning, are collected in smaller hazmat containers, allowed to dry and placed in with normal rubbish consistent with how printed product would be disposed of.
