Hand Sanitizer Product Disposal
Secure, Compliant and Sustainably focused product destruction
Mitigating risk and upholding compliance for healthcare organizations, Daniels' specialist hazardous waste services deliver expertise in categorisation, transport and treatment of recalled clinical products.
Clear distinctions distinguish whether a product at the end of its life is regarded as a hazardous waste. In the case of hand sanitizer, due to the FDA recall of many hand sanitizer products citing methanol or wood alcohol poisoning risk, it is no longer just volume that distinguishes methodologies of disposal. If the manufacturer, supplier or purchaser concludes that the FDA-recalled hand sanitizer should be discarded, then in all likelihood most states will consider this material a waste at a company level, subject to hazardous waste standards. For hand sanitizer collection and disposal, the following should be reviewed under the hazardous waste classifications.
- FDA Recalled Hand Sanitizer products
- Bulk amounts of alcohol based products containing isopropyl or ethanol
- Bulk amounts of expired hand sanitizer in single or bulk units
