Frequently Asked Questions

What are IBC totes and why should they be recycled?


A: IBC totes, also known as Intermediate Bulk Containers, are large, reusable containers that are used to store and transport liquids and bulk materials. They are commonly made of plastic and have a capacity of around 275 gallons. IBC totes are an efficient and cost-effective way to store and transport materials, but they can also have a negative impact on the environment if not disposed of properly. Recycling IBC totes helps to reduce waste and prevent these containers from ending up in landfills, where they can take hundreds of years to break down.

How do I recycle my Used IBC totes?


The process for recycling IBC totes will depend on where you are located and the specific recycling facilities and programs available in your area. Some options for recycling IBC totes include:

  • Contacting a company that specializes in buying and recycling used IBC totes. These companies will typically handle the transportation and recycling of the totes for you.

  • Checking with your local solid waste management agency to see if they offer IBC tote recycling services or have information on where to recycle these containers.

  • Researching private recycling facilities in your area that may accept IBC totes.

What happens to IBC totes after they are recycled?

When IBC totes are recycled, they are typically processed at a recycling facility where they are cleaned and the materials are separated. The plastic from the IBC totes can be melted down and turned into new products such as plastic lumber, park benches, and playground equipment. The metal components, such as the cage and valves, can also be recycled and used in the production of new products.
