The Importance of Proper Labeling
Accurate waste container labeling is critical for the proper storage, handling and disposal of hazardous waste.
Guidelines to Follow When Disposing of Dry Ice (from Airgas):
Wear suitable hand protection, place unused dry ice into an open plastic or metal container and allow to sublimate/evaporate in a secure, well ventilated area such as a fume hood or hard-ducted biological safety cabinet.
Do not dispose of dry ice in sinks, toilets or sewers; in trash bins or garbage cans; or in any area accessible to the general public.
