Disposal Methods

SRP: The most favorable course of action is to use an alternative chemical product with less inherent propensity for occupational harm/injury/toxicity or environmental contamination. Recycle any unused portion of the material for its approved use or return it to the manufacturer or supplier. Ultimate disposal of the chemical must consider: the material's impact on air quality; potential migration in soil or water; effects on animal and plant life; and conformance with environmental and public health regulations.
Incineration: Remove leaky cylinders to remote area to empty; then return to supplier with label indicating that repairs are needed. The waste carbon monoxide can be piped to an approved incinerator or the cylinder can be placed in a pit to burn carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide under controlled conditions.
