DOES HAND SANITIZER EXPIRE?
Yes, it most certainly does. The two active ingredients in hand sanitizer, hydrogen peroxide and alcohol, decrease over time. See the expiration date on the container.
AFTER ITS EXPIRATION DATE, WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH EXPIRED HAND SANITIZER?
Expired hand sanitizer disposal is crucial, as it is considered hazardous waste.
Additionally, the USDA classifies hand sanitizer as a Class 3 Flammable Liquid due to the high percentage of ethyl or isopropyl alcohol it contains. This classification comes with special handling and disposal requirements your business must follow.
Large amounts of outdated hand sanitizer call for hazardous waste disposal. Pouring gallons of expired hand sanitizer down a drain or throwing foam hand sanitizer into the trash is a recipe for disaster that can quickly lead to combustion. Furthermore, improper hand sanitizer disposal will also net your business bad press, hefty EPA fines and major legal issues with area, state and federal regulatory entities. Therefore, you will need to reach out to a waste management company for your commercial hand sanitizer disposal needs.
