Certain controlled products that fall within the WHMIS legislation may need to be disposed of as hazardous waste. Controlled products are identified by the label with a slash-marked border. The accompanying MSDS sheet gives information on disposal.
It is your company's legal responsibility to store any hazardous products on your premises safely and to ensure that a licensed waste contractor disposes them of, according to government regulations.
