I usually don't work in my own town (NYC) but I'm on the planning team for a large art facility that will be creating some interesting waste including the typical silver photo waste, oil paints, solvents, metal machining and casting wastes, resins, and printmaking waste, along with less common wastes from CNC and robo cutting and waterjet machining of many types of materials.
A lot of the projects will be really large.
We would like some help finding a waste disposal company that services art schools and colleges in this area, is familiar with typical art wastes, and might be willing to answer some questions the planning group has about SAA containers and pick up procedures for this Brooklyn project so we can set up properly from the get go.
The facility is past the Design Development planning stage and before construction documents are complete, we need some advice on how best to design this facility for ease of waste handling.
And that should also tell you how very special this project is.
Usually waste handling is figured out after the first barrel full is rotting on the dock.
