• Be aware that some chemicals are incompatible with other chemicals and need to be kept separated. All materials should be delivered in their original containers if possible.
• If a container is leaking, place it in some form of secondary containment such as a pail, drum, or some other leak resistant container.
• If a farm or household is planning to bring in a large load (over 250 pounds), a load of several drums, or a load containing unusual wastes, please contact us prior to the event.
