HazChem Environmental is ready to handle your hand sanitizer disposal and recycling needs.
We are certainly familiar with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines regarding the handling of hand sanitizer.
According to the USDA: “Effective hand sanitizers typically contain 60-95% ethyl or isopropyl alcohol. At this alcohol concentration, hand sanitizer is classified as a Class 3 Flammable Liquid, which has specific handling and disposal requirements …. USDA Agencies must manage all hand sanitizer as a Class 3 Flammable Liquid, in accordance with 29 CFR § 1910.106 and 1926.152. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) prohibits the storage of these items in office buildings. When stored for future use, accumulations of 25 gallons or more of hand sanitizer, even in multiple small containers, must be placed in a flammable liquid storage cabinet in a non-office building. Federal disposal guidelines require all alcohol-based hand sanitizers be treated as hazardous waste due to the ignitability characteristic (40 CFR § 261.21). Proper disposal can only be achieved through a waste hauler qualified to manage hazardous waste.”
