Drip Dry Policy

Empty steel, fiber, and plastic drums to be picked up by Reliable Industries must comply with our “Drip Dry Policy”. To further enforce and comply with the EPA’s empty drum regulations which allow no more than 2.5 cm (1 inch) of residual material to remain in the bottom of an empty steel, fiber or plastic drum, Reliable Industries is currently using a “DRIP DRY” policy which allows for no material in the empty drums. No drum will be picked up which has any loose material in it. This means NO loose liquids or solids. If loose material can be poured or dumped out of the drum, then it is not empty. Additionally, if the prior residual material is listed by the EPA in 40 CFR 261.33(e) as a “P-Listed” acutely hazardous waste, the drum is not deemed empty unless it has been triple-rinsed using an effective solvent or has been cleaned by a method shown to achieve equivalent removal. All drums being removed from a supplier’s facility must have heads and rings affixed or have the bungs in place. Our drivers have been instructed not to pick up drums that are not properly prepared for removal. Every person providing drums containing any residues to Reliable regardless of prior content shall sign an “EMPTY DRUM CERTIFICATION” verifying that the drums are empty in accordance with the above explanation.
