The initiative allowed for the re-allocation of resources within waste management program allowed for savings in money and resources. Due to the continued bulking of the materials, cost saving from this specific stream of waste was 66%, even when factoring in the cost of cubic yard boxes and pallets. This eventually led to storing less 30-gallon drums in Main Accumulation Areas, thus freeing up space to help accommodate compliance. This company, with the re-use of the drums, now saves nearly 7,800 pounds of plastic on an annual basis. Researchers also supported this program due to constant decontamination of drums, clean poly bags, and guaranteed re-use of the same drum. All material is now sent to a Waste to Energy facility instead of incineration.
