Spent Abrasives

Kleen Industrial Services provides innovative and responsible waste management and landfill options. The KIS Reuse and Recycling program demonstrates our commitment to minimizing industrial waste streams and polluted landfills. Industry does tremendous damage every day to our local environment by sending huge amounts of waste to the landfill, in turn damaging the air, land and water. Industrial processes such as sandblasting, foundry generate enormous amounts of waste mixed in the spent abrasives and foundry sand which cannot be assimilated by nature but can be beneficially reused by other industry, and are the “nutrients” of the ‘next cycle’ production. We work with each client (suppliers and end users) to develop long-term sustainable solutions. Kleen Industrial Services is not simply about compliance. We’ve found if you address sustainability compliance takes a back seat as a “non-issue”. We provide complete documentation suits and track material, “cradle-to-cradle”, when beneficially reused there is no “grave”. KIS comprehensive Recycling/Disposal program encompasses the following areas.

  • Project Initiation
  • Temporary Storage
  • Sample & Document Procurement
  • Testing & Material Designation
  • Disposal or Recycling Recommendation
  • Transportation
  • Complete Documentation and Recycling Certificate

The following spent materials are some examples of candidates for the KIS reuse and recycling program: silica, iron, alumina, gypsum, calcium and lime sources, water filtration media, foundry sand, and filter media.
