In the printing press industry it’s common if not mandatory to recycle used masks and as much chemicals as possible. But I’m talking about a different printing process (the CTP process used here prints on aluminium plate “masks”, which are actually interesting to recycle money-wise) and different country (EU vs CN). In the past, when we used lead lettering (before my time, but no so far ago), the industry recycled the lead too.
