If you work in a garage, the automotive industry or with other vehicles or in other industries that require rapid cooling such as HVAC, you may find yourself with antifreeze to dispose of. Finding the right way to get rid of used antifreeze can be extremely important to the success of your business. Most companies today are seeking methods of waste antifreeze disposal that are safer for the environment, minimizing the effects of discarded antifreeze on the community at large.
Why Is Proper Disposal of Antifreeze Important?
Antifreeze can be among the most toxic types of chemical waste a company produces. Many strong antifreeze products contain ethylene glycol, which is highly toxic to humans, and others contain propylene glycol. Waste products from propylene glycol are not as toxic but are still unhealthy for the environment — especially in large doses. Careless disposal of antifreeze can both harm the eco-system and cause you to be out of compliance with government regulations.
