Disposal of Copper Carbonate?

Post by Ian » 14 Mar 2019, 11:22

Hi All,

I'm having trouble with FaceBook, so I have come back home to here!
Can somebody remind me, what is the correct way to dispose of used Copper Carbonate these days?

Cheers
Ian

Yes facebook is playing up Ian, Copper Carbonate, if still green, it can around again. If use BLACK, put into newspaper and the plastic bag to bin.

This might be too late but for future reference.

The SDS I have state the following

SDS
13. Disposal considerations
Whatever cannot be saved for recovery or recycling should be handled as hazardous waste and
disposed of according to relevant local, state and federal government regulations.
