      http://www.terracepackaging.com/ They're in Kansas City.

      I'd call and ask. I couldn't find info on who produces Everblum.

      Good luck!

      Check with your local Hazardous waste depot for places to despose of the chemicals or places that will take it. Waste management services would be another

            Go down to your Friendly Neighborhood Firehouse, I'm sure they would be able to tell you or at least point you in the correct direction.  That's the usual collection point for most hazwaste recycling anyway. I've always found them very helpful, even if I'm just going in for directions.

            Please note that Mark Twain specified

            A couple of options. Give a call to your waste hauler and ask if they provide hazardous waste pickup. Or call the waste facility in your area and they may be able to place you in touch with a collection service that does not charge for the service. In our area we have a hazardous chemical collection week in May and September each year. The goal is mainly to keep household chemicals from going into landfills. The county coordinates and runs the program. It's worth checking if something like that takes place in your area.
