Why it is Important to Dispose of Chemicals?

It is vital that the disposal of chemicals and waste is appropriately handled by professionals as it can have a serious impact on the environment & all living organisms including humans.

WHAT IS HAZARDOUS WASTE?

Hazardous waste have properties that make them dangerous or potentially harmful to human health, living organisms & environment and they cannot be placed in your garbage bin.

While in their simplest forms they are liquids, solids, gases, or a sludge, we also think of hazardous waste in terms of its originating waste stream: liquid waste, clinical/medical waste and e-waste.

Chemicals may include:

  • Paint & paint related products
  • Pesticides & herbicides
  • Solvents & household cleaners
  • Motor oils, fuels and fluids
  • Batteries
  • Gas bottles & fire extinguishers
  • Pool chemical
  • Acids and alkalis
  • Hobby chemical
  • Fluorescent tubes

To handle hazardous waste at home safely you should:

  • Keep the goods in their original containers if possible. If containers are leaking, use new containers but never use food containers like soft drink bottles.
  • Don’t mix chemicals when decanting a substance into a new storage container.
  • Make sure all labels, including warning labels and manufacturer’s instructions, remain intact on the packaging.
  • Store goods upright with lids secured tightly and out of the reach of young children.
  • Keep all ignition sources, such as matches, well away from the storage area.
  • Ensure the storage area cool and dry.
  • Buy the smallest amount for your needs.
