In compliance with regional/local or governmental regulations/rules/laws, remove waste. It is forbidden to mix hazardous waste with other types of waste. It is forbidden to combine different kinds of hazardous waste together if doing so could lead to pollution or provide difficulties for the waste’s subsequent handling. It is necessary to responsibly manage hazardous trash. All organisations that handle, transport, or store hazardous waste are required to take the necessary precautions to reduce the danger of pollution or injury to humans or animals. By distillation, recycle. Transfer to a solvent waste incinerator with energy recovery that is approved. Never empty into surface water. Discharge to a wastewater treatment facility might be possible.

  • Ecological aspects of waste: Avoid environmental release.
