Secondary Containers

Place all liquid hazardous chemical waste in secondary containers. Secondary containers must be able to hold 110% of the volume of the primary container held within it. If more than one container is placed in a secondary container, then it must be able to hold 150% of the volume of the largest single container or 110% of the combined volume of every container, whichever is greater. Search for the size and volume you need with vendors like Fisher Scientific, CP Lab Safety, and Scientific Plastics.
