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.
