June 10, 2022     News

Customers and recycling plants often ask us how to dispose of a chemical storage tank. As a owner of plastic barrels and containers (IBCs), you are responsible for the tank from purchase to disposal. Needless to mention, sometimes the tanks contain remnant liquid and chemicals, which pose a threat to the environment and work safety.

The big volume and often hazardous tanks cannot simply be tossed away on a landfills. This becomes a great business opportunity for recycling plastic tanks. From picking up a tank to recycling plastic tank, it is a value-added and fully automated process. Wiscon Envirotech has enabled numerous recycling plants and faculties to recycle plastic tanks.
