Do not throw empty containers into the fire; recycle them or dispose of them in the places provided for this purpose:

Do not drill, cut or weld the product container, even if it is empty:

Never pour hazardous household products into the drain pipes of your home. They can accumulate a static charge capable of creating a spark.
