How to Dispose of Solvents:

  1. Do NOT flush solvents down the drain because these drains lead to either a home septic system or a municipal treatment plant, neither of which has adequate capability to remove hazardous chemicals from wastewater.

  2. Toxic chemicals might also disrupt microbial processes in septic tanks and treatment plants, reducing their effectiveness.

  3. Some of the toxins can be removed, but a significant portion of these chemicals passes through treatment processes and ultimately contaminates water resources.

  4. They should also be informed that home hazardous products should never be poured on the ground, into gutters, or down storm drains where they will eventually enter storm sewers and be transported untreated into nearby bodies of water.
