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.
