Can It Be Recycled? is available to solid waste generators nationwide at no charge.
The program is designed to help generators recycle all types of solid, non-hazardous, materials - wastes that would otherwise go to a landfill or Waste to Energy facility.
Identify a unique or difficult solid waste generated by your organization that represents a measurable portion of your waste volume.
Normally, the material is part of the last 10% or 20% of your waste stream, is not typically recycled by traditional recyclers and is currently being landfilled or sent to a standard Waste to Energy facility. Our program is designed to handle non-hazardous solid wastes only - we do not handle liquids, hazardous or bio-hazardous wastes!
Complete our Material Evaluation Form. Make sure you fill out a separate form for each waste you would like analyzed by our Can It Be Recycled? Lab. The form may be found here:
Attach a copy of the SDS form for the waste material "as is" as well as the SDS forms for each known component of the waste material. These SDS forms should be attached to the Material Evaluation Form when it is submitted.
Attach a copy of Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure ("TCLP") test results for the waste material "as is". This test measures for the 8 RCRA Metals to prove the material is non-hazardous per EPA Standards. In order for us to recycle your material, it must not contain any constituents that exceed the EPA's TCLP limits.
Please note - if you do not have the TCLP results yet, but would still like us to do a preliminary review of your Material Sample, you can always follow-up later with your TCLP results. However, we typically cannot complete our analysis and commit to recycling your material until we do receive your TCLP results.
Sometimes standard, previously seen, solid wastes that are known to be free of RCRA materials may not require TCLP tests based upon your or our Process Knowledge, i.e. applied knowledge of the raw materials and processes generating the waste.
Put together a 5 pound or 5 gallon sample of your solid, non-hazardous, non-bio-hazardous material. This can normally be shipped to us in a sturdy cardboard box or 5 gallon plastic bucket along with your paperwork.
Ship your completed Material Evaluation Form, SDS Sheets, TCLP Results and Material Sample to:
Conigliaro Industries, Inc.
Attn: Can It Be Recycled? Lab
701 Waverly Street
Framingham, MA 01702
Upon receipt of your package, our Can It Be Recycled? team will review all your documents and your sample and perform lab tests as needed to determine if we can recycle the material. If we can recycle your material, we will develop a program for you, including:
Normally, we will provide an answer to you about your material's recyclability within 5 business days of receipt.
