Industrial Container and Drum Cleaning Industry

June 2002; EPA-821-R-02-011

This Industry Profile Report provides information about the Industrial Container and Drum Cleaning (ICDC) industry, including the practices and technologies used by the industry to control pollutant discharges to U.S. surface waters and publicly-owned treatment works (POTW). EPA conducted this study of ICDC operations to increase its understanding of the industry and to provide data to facilitate a decision as to whether or not national categorical effluent limitations guidelines and standards should be developed for this category of dischargers.
