Consider this little known fact: Over 100 million gallons of hydraulic fluid are lost each year due to preventable leaks. So, lets look at the retail price of a 55 gallon drum of hydraulic oil from a well known online distributor: $850. At that cost, we are dumping $84.4 billion of hazardous waste each year. We say 'dumping' because we're not only throwing away 85 billion dollars; we are leaking a tremendous amount of potentially toxic fluid. Chances are most of it is not being properly recycled or reclaimed. Instead, it ends up in the soil of construction sites or down the floor drain in manufacturing plants. And remember the operative word in the first sentence: preventable.
