What is the best way to dispose of surplus dilute solution.

Use up surplus diluted product in the garden for the purpose recommended on the label.

Made up diluted concentrate products cannot be stored in a shed/garage as they are not formulated to be stored and lose their effectiveness. Furthermore they could be a danger to children, pets and wildlife.

NEVER DISPOSE OF GARDEN CARE CHEMICALS IN HOUSEHOLD SINKS LAVATORIES OR DRAINS OR ANYWHERE IN THE OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT EXCEPT FOR THE PURPOSE RECOMMENDED.

ONLY BUY WHAT YOU NEED AND ONLY MAKE UP WHAT YOU NEED FOR THE JOB. FOR SMALL AREAS PURCHASE RE-USEABLE READY TO USE PRODUCT.

EMPTY READY TO USE CONTAINERS CAN NOW BE DISPOSED INTO THE HOUSEHOLD RECYCLING WASTE.

EMPTY CONCENTRATE CONTAINERS SHOULD BE RINSED THREE TIMES AND DISPOSED IN THE NORMAL HOUSEHOLD WASTE.
