I would like some straightforward information on legislation regarding disposal of flammable rags. Do they need to be incinerated or just sent to haz. waste landfill? Efforts to get an answer through the MOE website have failed. thanks

Ask a company that deals with rags-recycling for reuse purposes. They are aware of what types of rags they are taking away and will dispose of the rags in the proper manner.

Ontario Reg. 347 (general waste) defines hazardous waste. One of the types of waste included is "ignitable waste". “ignitable waste� means a waste that, (b) is a solid and is capable, under standard temperature and pressure, of causing fire through friction, absorption of moisture or spontaneous chemical changes and, when ignited, burns so vigorously and persistently that it creates a danger, The Regulation governs generator registriation, manefesting, handling and disposal of hazardous waste.

I'm currently looking into having solvent based rags spun dry and recycled at a much cheaper cost than landfilling. Unforetunately, the rag make up is important, I deal with polypropylene naptha based rags, but most solvents can be extracted and recycled. The rags are then recycled or at least disposed of as Non-haz.
