It’s a common misconception that hazardous waste cannot be recycled. In actuality, Miller recycles more than 9,000,000 kilograms of waste every year.
Miller strives to use and/or develop the best technology available to minimize impact on the environment. We take pride in our ability to set benchmarks with respect to technologies and best practices in the industry. Our customers’ growing demand for recycling their waste has provided incentive for Miller to explore a variety of recycling options and alternatives. Through this process, we have adapted to this growing requirement and modified many of our internal processes to accommodate such requests while still providing cost effective solutions to our customers.
Recycling waste saves landfill space, conserves resources, saves energy, and saves water.
In 2016, Miller commissioned an 8000 square foot processing building, designed for the use of plastic container washing and shredding. The state-of-the-art automated system prepares industrial plastics and pesticide containers to be sent for recycling.
Through various processes, Miller has established ways of recycling or repurposing several waste streams. Solvents and other organic substances are blended as an alternative fuel, alkaline waste is used to neutralize acidic waste, and spent catalyst is reacted out and used as a reagent for other processes. During the stabilization process, water is removed and then reused in other processes.
Types of waste currently recycled or repurposed:
- Electronic waste
- Paper & cardboard
- Fluorescent tubes and other light bulbs
- Various types of steel
- Spent catalyst
- Industrial waste water
- Semi precious metals collected through the processing of waste
