Stamper Processes and Sells Solid Waste, for Profit

Saturday, November 1, 2008
Truex Inc., Pawtucket, RI, a manufacturer of deep-drawn and stamped parts from brass, steel, stainless steel and aluminum alloys, has, for 15 years, been processing its solid waste to eliminate hazardous substances. The result was thousands of pounds of an environmentally safe solid-waste product that it paid to have deposited in a local landfill. Now the firm has found a buyer for its solid-waste product, who reclaims copper from the waste for reuse. Truex makes money from the sale and also saves the cost of landfill disposal.
