How are used rags and towels disposed?
Laundry service--Rags are sent offsite to be
laundered (often with technician uniforms.)
Burned for heat--Rags are mixed with used oil or other
fluids and burned in the shop furnace. This does not include burning
in a barrel simply for disposal.
Trash--Rags are disposed with trash (in a dumpster)
and not segregated.
How are used rags stored while onsite?
Separate container--In a container (bucket, can,
barrel, on a shelf or bench, etc.) that only contains rags.
Shop trash can--Can/dumpster that contains all shop
waste (not segregated).
Floor--On the floor, in a pile or simply scattered.
