How to dispose of chemical waste in a salon

As a salon owner, you are responsible for the disposal of any chemical waste generated by your business.

But what exactly counts as chemical waste? And what are the best ways to get rid of it? In this blog post, we’ll answer those questions and more.

What Kind Of Chemical Waste Is In A Salon?

The most common type of chemical waste found in salons is hair colour. Hair colour can be either water-based or oil-based, and each type requires a different method of disposal. Other types of salon chemical waste include nail polish, hair straighteners, and perm solutions.

Tips For Disposing of Your Salon Chemical Waste

The first step in disposing of your salon chemical waste is to identify which type of waste it is.

Water-based hair colour can be disposed of in your regular rubbish, while oil-based hair colour must be taken to a chemical waste facility.

Nail polish can also be disposed of in your regular rubbish, while hair straighteners and perm solutions must be taken to a chemical waste facility.

Once you have identified the type of waste, you can follow the appropriate disposal method.

  • For water-based hair colour, simply pour it down the drain with hot water running to flush it away.
  • For oil-based hair colour, mix it with an absorbent material like litter or coffee grounds before putting it in a sealed container and taking it to a chemical waste facility.
  • For nail polish, pour it into a sealable container and then throw it away in your regular rubbish.
  • Finally, for hair straighteners and perm solutions, take them to a chemical waste facility for proper disposal.
