I do not work for this company, but I do know that Clean Harbors (one of about 10,000 companies who deal with this) probably has a branch in your area. It's an easy waste for them to handle, and in fact it may be a Universal waste (even with metals - as those are common paint components, but they would be able to help you more with local regulations). Worst case - handle it as a hazardous waste and bulk it with everything else you dispose of.
Make sure the person who signs the manifests for your school knows about this stream so that they can properly manage RCRA size (CESQG vs SQG etc...).

They say they've called everyone in the yellow pages to no avail. They must not be looking in the right yellow pages! I'll google some National Companies that list in Kansas on Tuesday when I'm back from working at the U of Delaware. M

Any full-service haz waste management outfit will take them. I know for a fact the national vendors do.
The Art Center needs to work with the Haz Waste Mgmt firm to establish a waste profile for the rags; then it’s straightforward.
Gaining approval from a laundry service company would be more challenging. Their facilities typically aren’t designed or permitted to treat many of the art-related contaminants.
