Always read the instructions and take care when using and disposing of chemicals.
Look for environmentally-friendly alternatives to industrial chemicals.
Share with other businesses, organisations to reduce waste rather than dispose of partially empty containers.
Refill containers where possible.
Check if the manufacturer has a take-back scheme.
The Whanganui Resource Recovery Centre in conjunction with the Whanganui District Council holds four hazardous waste collections per year. Qualified Safety Officers able to identify hazardous waste will be in attendance. (Pre-booking is required.)
