Disposal considerations

Burn in chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. Disposal must be in accordance with current national and local regulations. Chemical residues generally count as special waste, and their disposal may be regulated in the EC member countries through corresponding laws and regulations. General EU requirements are given in the Waste Framework Directive (75/442/EEC) and the Hazardous Waste Directive (91/689/EEC).
Do not dump this material into sewers, on the ground or into any body of water.
