Hand Sanitizer Disposal

Hand sanitizer is something most businesses have on hand. It’s a quick, convenient way to encourage proper personal hygiene and prevent the spread of bacteria and disease on commercial grounds. If your business uses hand sanitizer, there will likely come a point when you need to get rid of excess. Hand sanitizer generally lasts for two to three years. After it expires, it loses most of its effectiveness and should be safely and correctly disposed of. Unfortunately, disposing of hand sanitizer isn’t as simple as tossing it in the bin. Learn the basics of hand sanitizer disposal below with Clean Management Environmental Group.

Hand Sanitizer Disposal: Why It Matters

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 you need to follow.

How Do You Properly Dispose of Hand Sanitizer?

You can dispose of small, residential levels of hand sanitizer in the trash, but large amounts of hand sanitizer (at SQG, LQG, or CESQG levels) call for hazardous waste disposal. Pouring gallons of hand sanitizer down a drain or throwing it into the trash is a recipe for disaster that can quickly lead to combustion. Improper disposal can also net your business bad press and hefty EPA fines. For these reasons, you’ll need to reach out to a waste management company for your commercial sanitizer disposal needs.
