Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Services

The collection and disposal options for exempt household hazardous wastes from municipalities and homeowners improving the environment around family and friends.

COMMON WASTE CAN BECOME HAZARDOUS AND EXPLOSIVE!
Does your warehouse, laboratory, hospital, school, medical facility, factory or operation use small containers (usually less than 10 gallons each) of chemicals, solvents, reagents, paints, thinners, dyes, inks, acids, bases, cleaners, strippers, pool chemicals, dry cleaning compounds, etc.? If so, it is important to contact us for LAB PACK service.

Over time, jars and cans accumulate that are out-of-date, contaminated, partially used, or leaking. Some chemicals, like picric acid (commonly used in medical labs) become explosive as they age, and in a few months can explode simply from the friction of opening the lid. Other chemicals such as acetone, MEK, Xylene, ether or tuluene are hazardous immediately after use. Used and unused chromic acid cleaning solutions are a hazard. Old compressed gas lecture bottles can become very dangerous if the valves have rusted. Aerosol cans of paint, printed circuit board cleaners and degreasers can also be hazardous. Safe disposal is vital and required by law.

Tonawanda Tank offers complete “Turn-Key” LAB PACK service. Our personnel will identify, inventory, segregate, package, label, transport, and dispose of these small quantity, and sometimes dangerous chemicals in an efficient, safe and cost effective manner. Eliminating unforeseen liabilities for your company. Schedule a pick-up today!

LAB PACK SERVICES
lab packs

Tonawanda Tank offers economical and environmentally sound disposal for laboratory and miscellaneous small package chemical waste. Our experienced staff will identify, segregate, and catalog your unwanted chemicals to design a disposal program. Upon completion of the design, we will collect, package, and label your materials to comply with all state and federal regulations. Our specifically trained professionals will complete all shipping manifests and land disposal restriction forms. Tonawanda Tank Transport Service Inc. handles the entire disposal process including transportation allowing your company or laboratory to continue operations without interruption. Safety and security is our concern. Your wastes are incinerated or treated; none are directly land-filled.

Does your Lab Pack Service send an expert to your site?

TEC sends an expert...a CHEMIST...to process each and every lab pack, because there are usually unexpected wastes to profile. TEC can efficiently inventory, collect, identify, segregate, consolidate, catalog, package, label, transport and dispose of all your miscellaneous chemical wastes. TEC will handle your small containers of hazardous wastes -- such as jars, bottles and jugs up to 5 gallons in size -- and pack them in 55 gallon drums for storage, transportation and disposal. This service can be provided as a one-time cleanout, on an "as needed" basis, or on a set schedule during the year.

WHAT IS A LAB PACK?
mystery waste


A lab pack is a collection of similar and compatible types of waste chemicals (in small volume containers, less than 5 gallon in size) that are placed in one larger container (55 gallon or less) for storage, transportation and disposal. Such activity is considered a lab pack.

ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL RULES FOR LAB PACKS?

Yes, If you combine your waste in containers, you must comply with the applicable requirements for waste consolidation. Lab packs have special requirements with regard to packaging prior to transportation and disposal. For packaging prior to disposal, you must use DOT approved non-leaking "inside containers" that are compatible with the waste being packaged. These inside containers must be over-packed ie lab packed in compatible "outer-containers" that is also compatible. The inside containers must be surrounded by enough compatible sorbent material to safely absorb all the contents in the container should a container rupture. A drum is considered lab-packed or full when it is packed with inside containers and sufficient sorbent material, sealed and completely categorized by an accurate inventory of the containers contents. In addition, incompatible hazardous waste can not be placed in the same outside container. As an example: reactive hazardous waste, such as cyanide or sulfide-bearing wastes, must not be packaged with acidic wastes.
