Drain Disposal of Chemicals
MedSun: Newsletter #44, January 2010

The Lab Manager Magazine

This article gives recommendations on proper drain disposal of chemicals. Including, be certain that the sewer flows to a wastewater treatment plant and not to a stream or other natural water course. For compounds not suitable for drain disposal, label and package the compound and ship by a shipper approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation to a landfill designated by EPA to receive chemical and hazardous waste.
