Absorbent Booms and Pad Recycling Services

absorbent brooms for waste

Reusable absorbent booms and pads are expensive – and not as effective as new absorbents. Yet, disposing of single-use absorbents is also costly and can be environmentally irresponsible. January Environmental’s absorbent recycling service provides a greener solution and allows your company to use fresh, optimally absorbent pads every time.

Just like the spill, the clean up is just as serious. Our team of clean up technicians is certified and up to date with all OSHA and EPA standards. With extensive regulations and compliances that change according to each state, our trained staff understand the complexities that go into each cleanup. At the end of the day, we are looking to not only save you the hassle and expense but the environment as well.

Our Recycling Process

January Environmental will pick up and recycle your spent absorbents to keep them out of landfills. Unlike companies that use chemicals to remove oil from spent pads and then sell them back to customers, we re-purpose pads, socks, and booms as burner fuel, and we reuse kitty litter/floor dry as part of our disposal method to dry our solid waste. By blending the floor dry with the solid waste to soak up saturated material, we keep it from running into freshwater streams when the waste is disposed of.

Absorbent Socks

A combination of mixed cotton and polypropylene with a polyester knit casing for quick absorbency. Oil socks are best used for absorbing hazardous liquids such as oils, coolants, fuels, grease, solvents, and water. Best used for direct contact, these socks are great for absorbing leaks and spills. With its flexibility, oil socks can be wrapped around machinery or containing spills. One oil sock can approximately absorb 3 quarts of liquids.

Absorbent Booms

Booms are another absorbent that we can recycle for you. One of the most popular absorbents on the market, they can absorb and retain oils, lubricants, fuels, and other hazardous liquids without retaining water. Booms also float to the surface for easy retrieval while saturated. With a strong outer mesh, it’s resistant to UV rays for long-term outdoor use and doesn’t degrade over time.

Absorbent Pads

Pads are a great solution to cleaning up any hazardous liquid as they can reduce any risk of electrostatic discharge. This is important to avoid when handling flammable liquids or vapors. Our pads can absorb and retain any oils or fuels including acetone, benzene, gasoline, toluene, xylene, mineral spirits, and jet fuel.

Easy Cleanup and Recycling

Clean up is simple. Let us clean up the spill, conduct a contamination analysis to identify what’s in the spill, and make further recommendations. We’ll provide drums or bins for you to conveniently use at your leisure, and you can schedule regular pickups, or call us when you need us.
