Can you reuse the Lutan F tanning solution after the first use? Is it biodegradable, if not how do you dispose of it?

I have a full time shop & yes you can reuse the solution. I use a 40 gallon mixture at a time. I will use the same tan for about 2 weeks or if it gets realy dirty.all of the dealers of Lutan that I have talked to have told me that yes it is biodegratable, & you can dump it down the drain. I realy like lutan & have had great succes with the stretch of this tan.
I wouldn't reuse the lutan-f As you don't really know what amount of tan was absorbed from the previous skins, And you jeopardize lack of tan and stretch on your next batch. salt is cheep and If you weigh your skins and mix your tan properly you really don't have any waste. Why take any chances. Just mix a new batch and be sure.
