The Solvent Savers site covers 13 acres in Lincklaen, New York. Solvent Savers, Inc. operated a chemical waste recovery facility at the site for reprocessing or disposal of industrial solvents and other wastes from about 1967 to 1974. Operations included distillation to recover solvents for reuse, drum reconditioning, and burial of liquids, solids, sludges and drums in several on-site areas.
