    A very particular part of our manufacturing process makes use of 6mil Black coro, and the 17x98 sections that remains are completely useless to us. Anyone know what can be done with this stuff? Is there a buyback kind of program? Can the manufacturers melt them down and recast? Is there a source to sell them as blanks for other shops?

    A piece or two of scrap is inconsequential, but we're talking about too much to use up in other projects, as we mainly use 4mil instead, and way too much to just throw away, knowing the value of it.

    Sorry to answer your question with another question....but if you're going through high volumes of this stuff - have you spoken to coroplast or whichever brand you're using about having custom sheets made that would reduce waste and increase efficiencies?

    I'm actually asking for our manufacturing department, but I'm willing to bet that hasn't been raised as an option. That being said, we do generate enough of it, but I doubt it's high enough volume for them to make an exception. We'll see, as I'll pass it along.
