How To Dispose Of Methanol In The Lab

Disposing of methanol from labs requires specialist handling and care. Methanol is classified as hazardous, meaning this chemical must adhere to strict guidelines during disposal. Whilst generating hazardous waste in labs is common, waste disposal must be completed by a professional, experienced team. 

To dispose of methanol waste properly, please contact our team. We specifically collect bulk volumes of this hazardous waste rather than small quantities. Our ADR (dangerous goods) trained drivers will then transport the waste to licensed treatment and disposal sites.

Proper disposal methods are essential to prevent environmental contamination and ensure safety in the lab. Its classification underscores the need for stringent handling and disposal protocols to protect human health and the environment.

Why Is Methanol Classified As Hazardous Waste?

Methanol, a common solvent in laboratory settings, requires careful disposal due to its toxic and flammable nature. The disposal of methanol in a laboratory setting must adhere to specific procedures to ensure safety and compliance with environmental regulations.

Here’s why methanol’s hazardous nature is significant:

Toxicity: Methanol can be harmful if inhaled, ingested, or absorbed through the skin, posing serious health risks.

Environmental Impact: If not disposed of properly, methanol can contaminate water and soil, posing risks to wildlife and the ecosystem.

Flammability: As a highly flammable substance, improper handling and disposal of methanol can lead to fire hazards.

Handling Methanol Waste In Labs


Methanol waste should be segregated from other chemical wastes, particularly incompatibles, to prevent reactions that could lead to hazardous conditions.

Labelling and Storage

Clearly label all containers holding methanol waste. Store them in a designated hazardous waste area, away from ignition sources, until they can be properly disposed of.

Understanding Regulations

Disposal regulations can vary by location, so it's crucial to understand and comply with your local laws regarding hazardous waste disposal.

Professional Disposal Services

For larger quantities of methanol, especially those generated in laboratory environments, you must use professional hazardous waste disposal services.
