Car Batteries, Sulfuric Acid and Reducing A Florida Waste Stream
In the late 1980's, the Southern Waste Information eXchange (SWIX) did various targeted mailings of their printed catalog of exchange listings. They often used SIC codes in order to generate lists of companies that might benefit from participating in the free SWIX program.
One such company was a lead acid battery recycling facility in Central Florida that was generating approximately 7,000 gallons per day of sulfuric acid and paying substantial disposal costs. Once they discovered SWIX, they placed a listing in the catalog, and, within 3-4 months, found another industrial manufacturer who required sulfuric acid as part of their manufacturing process.
The two parties negotiated the particulars (shipping, frequency of deliveries, cost sharing, etc.) and, by working together, eliminated a significant (and deadly) waste stream while saving money for each other at the same time.
