Category 4: halogen-rich organic fluids


Organic solvents containing more than 4% halogens, such as chlorine, fluorine, bromine or iodine compounds, including chloroform, dichloromethane, bromoform and degreasers such as ‘per’ and ‘tri’.


This waste must be disposed of in a 10-litre UN-certified jerry can with the appropriate labels (supplied by the Logistics Department) properly filled in. In addition, the outside of the jerry cans must be clean and dry. Jerry cans must not be more than 90% full and must be properly secured.

At the Linnaeusborg, full jerry cans must be placed on the bottom shelf of the fireproof cupboard – all jerry cans present at 2 p.m. on Monday will be collected that week.

New packaging/containers will be provided during the next Logistics round. If there are not enough containers/packaging available, please contact the Logistics department, tel. 050-3634102, e-mail

At NB4, containers must be taken to the Store on Tuesdays between 9 a.m. and 12 noon.

Replacements can be obtained from the Store of the Logistics department.
