The Textile Rental Services Association applauds a recent EPA modification of its hazardous-waste management regulations to conditionally exclude solvent-contaminated wipes that are cleaned and reused. Commercial laundries handle, wash and return clean wipes to their customers as part of the industrial laundry business. “Reusable textile products reduce waste and protect workers. Implementing this rule acknowledges these contributions and recognizes that these items play an important role in minimizing waste in a variety of industries across the economy,” said Kevin Schwalb, TRSA’s vice president of government relations.
