The Chemical Recycling Solutions exchange site allows other companies to agree to take on unwanted chemicals, according to a press release.

Posting unwanted chemicals is free, but registration is required.

The site has listings for acids, bases, solvents, acrylics, paints, surfactants, inks, oils and greases.

The site accepts out-of-date chemicals, as well.

The site eventually will add an industry forum and tips for recycling chemicals.

For instance, the EPA has rejected the right of businesses to file a confidentiality claim, known as Confidential Business Information (CBI) on the identity of chemicals. The move is expected to increase the public’s access to information on chemicals.
