Small spill: Cover with nonflammable absorbent (clay, kitty litter, etc.), to absorb the liquid. Sweep or shovel the absorbed material, using spark proof equipment, into an open drum. Decontaminate the area and equipment with dilute alkali or ammonia (less than 5% solution) and detergent. Absorb and sweep into the same open drum. Rinse with water, absorb, and add to the waste drum. Close the drum and dispose of properly, according to hazardous waste disposal procedures for your locality. /Bidrin 8 Water Miscible Insecticide/
