    How to dispose left over paint in a industrial environment

    Water based paint still contains chemicals and raw materials which can pollute waterways and cause blockages and damage to the treatment equipment.

    Don't just throw down the drain

    When paint (accidentally) enters a sewer system, it can cause blockages in the pipes and damage to the treatment equipment. Additionally, the paint can release harmful chemicals into the environment and potentially contaminate the water supply. It is important to properly dispose of paint and not pour it down the drain.

    Paint can be disposed of in a few different ways, depending on the type of paint and the amount you have. Here are a few options:

    1. Invest in a paint disposal system. Anker Stuy is having a cooperation with the Dutch company Trivec that offers different kind of paint disposal systems. The filter and flake system ensures that the paint is separated from the water and inorganic substances are collected in a container. The water can be recycled and depending on the kind of paint your using also poured down the drain. More information you find on https://trivececo.com/en/product/as120-wastewater-system-120l/ or ask Anker Stuy for a quote. Because its our mission to make sure that the paint will only impact the environment positive.
    2. Organise a contract with a official waste management service company that will pick up the waste. These companies will have the in-house installations to process the waste water without making impact on the environment.

     

    What about the packaging?

    Metal packaging can be emptied properly and then stored for collection as old steel. make sure that the packaging is empty during storage and that paint residues cannot leak. Make sure you have a storage location inside on a pallet.

    Tubes with sealants or smaller plastic pots can be submitted as chemical waste.
