Why You Should Use New Stainless Steel Drums Instead of Reconditioned Drums
The stainless steel drum industry has grown over the years and, as a result, many of today’s buyers struggle with the option of buying reconditioned or new stainless steel drums. While strict codes are imparted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on companies that recondition and sell previously used drums, not everyone abides by these regulations or operates as approved members of quality assurance organizations like the Reusable Industrial Packaging Association (RIPA). These unscrupulous companies could be putting buyers (and their customers) in serious danger.
For example, if a used drum has not gone through the proper reconditioning requirements, it could have remnants of the previous substance. Potentially hazardous chemical residue can not only change the composition of what is put in the drums next, but also the safety and health of your employees and your customers. While the use of these reconditioned drums might save money in the short term, the potential long term effects it could have on your business and your reputation make those minimal cost-savings vanish fairly quickly.
