RLI's New Solid Waste Handling Permit Gives Waste Generators a Better Option for Nonhaz Bulk Liquid and Powder Disposal
SAVANNAH, Ga.—16 Aug. 2006—The Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GDNR) made it easier for companies to dispose of nonhazardous bulk liquids and powders on June 20, when the agency issued a new Solid Waste Handling permit to the Return Logistics International Corporation Central Returns and Waste Processing Center in Savannah.
“Our new permit enables RLI to provide manufacturing plants, manufacturers’ distribution centers, chain store distribution centers, third-party logistics providers, and other generators of nonhazardous bulk liquid and powders with an outlet that can blend materials that do not meet state requirements for disposal as a solid waste and need to be solidified, as well as those that prefer to recycle their liquid and powder waste into energy,” said RLI President and CEO Brian Stenz. “The permit makes RLI the only service provider in the country that can integrate a large Fortune 500 company’s returns and reject waste under one roof. This allows RLI to protect the reverse supply chain by tracking and tracing the collection and consolidation of materials. In addition, RLI maximizes recycling revenues and lowers transportation and disposal cost.”
