Flexo Sustainable : Fall 2011
Becoming a zero landfill production facility is a high priority in today’s environment. Flint Group Flexographic Procucts is pleased to announce a new service in the continental United States to collect, transport, and responsibly handle used nyloflex® printing plates, as well as raw material pieces. The program utilizes a nationwide, licensed service provider. Raw plates and used printing plates with cushion tape affixed can be collected for responsible disposal via energy conversion. Here’s how the program works: Zero Waste to Landfill Plate Waste Recovery Service for North America New recovery service for nyloflex® printing plates • Contact your Flint Group Flexographic Products regional sales manager to initiate the process. He will coordinate a meeting to review the specifics of the service. • Price quotations are available based upon your region of service. • Upon agreement to start the plate recovery service, cubic yard corrugated containers will be provided. As plate waste is accumulated, raw plates, coversheets, and used printing plates with mounting tape affixed to them may be placed in the containers. • Care must be taken to load waste as densely as possible into the containers to maintain low cost efficiency. It is estimated that one cubic yard container will hold approx. 1,490 ft2 of plate material (about 525 pounds) with a fill efficiency of 40%. • A toll free number will be provided to arrange pick-up and replacement of containers. A minimum of two full containers is required for pick-up, and a minimum volume of 12 containers per year is required. • Title to waste is transferred to the Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF) upon loading at the customer’s facility. • The customer will receive indemnification at the time of pick-up for issues related to transportation, disposal, and long term liability, as long as the correct paperwork is provided to the TSDF. • Flint Group Flexographic Products will provide invoices for this service.
