Empty Container Labels


Home / Labels / Waste /

ICC Compliance Center's dedication to compliance allows us to offer hazardous waste labels for empty containers.

Disposal of hazardous wastes is an important procedure that must be conducted in accordance with government regulations. Hazardous chemical wastes are solid, liquid, semi-solid, or gaseous material that may present a hazard to human health or the environment. Wastes are considered hazardous if they are ignitable, corrosive, reactive, toxic, or if they are included on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's list.

To alert personnel to the hazards of empty waste containers, use ICC Compliance Center's empty labels. When a package which previously contained radioactive materials has been emptied of its contents, the package can be prepared for reshipment and the Empty label can be applied per 49 CFR 173.428/172.450.

These labels are needed to communicate to all custodians of empty containers important safety information until the containers are cleaned by reconditioning or processing for scrap recycling.

Empty Definition
The definition of "empty" can be found in 40 CFR 261.7 and requires:

  1. All wastes have been removed that can be removed using the practices commonly employed to remove materials from that type of container, e.g., pouring, pumping, and aspirating, and
  2. No more than 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) of residue remain on the bottom of the container or inner liner, or
  3. No more than 3 percent by weight of the total capacity of the container remains in the container or inner liner if the container is less than or equal to 110 gallons in size.
  4. No more than 0.3 percent by weight of the total capacity of the container remains in the container or inner liner if the container is greater than 110 gallons in size.
Our hazardous waste labels specific to California or New Jersey State requirements are fully compliant with the EPA regulations (40 CFR) and 49 CFR parts.
