This paper concerns the need for the safe and environmental disposal of waste solder paste from the screen printing process in electrical and elec- tronic equipment manufacturing. A versatile solu- tion is proposed in which the solder paste tube con- tainer cap is modified to allow easy paste removal with the efficient and safe deposition of the paste back into the original tube. This tube can then be returned to the vendor and/or dispatched to an authorized hazardous waste disposal handler.
