Are you using IBC caged aluminum totes in your food production process? Empty IBC caged aluminum tote can take up much needed warehouse space, as a result. Tote recycling is a solution that most businesses need. For instance, We often get questions from our customers about how to recycle your empty totes. In short, RDU Pallets will help eliminate empty totes from piling up in your warehouse or production facility. If your company have quantities (20+), that meet our quality standards, we will buy them from you at a mutually agreed upon price. Therefore in the graphic below we show you how to recycle your empty IBC totes.
HOW IT WORKS
Pickup request services need to have the following information: contact information, the number of totes, barrels or drums, you have to be picked up, and how frequently you generate these used empty containers. You can submit a pickup request 24 hours, 7 days a week. Once your request has been processed, one of our representatives will contact you.
Pictures and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
The next step after submitting your request, is to gatherpictures of your empty IBC totes and containers. For IBC totes you would need pictures of the group of totes, cages and valves. For barrels/drums you would need pictures of the container along with the removable or non-removable lids. Before we can remove your containers, we would need the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) per Department of Transportation requirement to know the previous contents. The SDS is vitally important!
Once all the information above is submitted, we would then schedule a day for pickup. This day will be confirmed by both parties prior to the day of pickup. Our drivers will have a bill of lading accompanying them that would need to be signed by your company representative on site.
Inspection and Payment
If your empty totes pass our quality inspection, the next and final step in the process is the payment. RDU Pallets will pay you the agreed upon price per unit. Payments are made either at pickup or sent in a reasonable time frame of your preference. Our practice to always establish payment terms for container pickups with our customers before the first load is ever picked up. We do not pay for all totes or containers. Totes and containers payments are based on location, types (Schutz, Mauser, or Grieft for IBC totes, Removable and Non-Removable lids for drums) and condition of the containers.
