Responsible Disposal of Contaminated Sunscreen Products

At Valisure, we are often asked how to safely dispose of products with suspected or known contamination like benzene.

At Valisure, we are often asked how to safely dispose of products with suspected or known contamination like benzene. Given benzene’s potential threat to human health and the natural environment, there are many disposal precautions for benzene-containing items and these regulations concerning benzene disposal vary by state. Connecticut residents are advised to use their local household hazardous waste collection programs. Likewise, many town or municipality Public Works Departments accept hazardous household waste products. Check with your local Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) office or waste regulatory agencies for collection facilities and disposal protocols. Alternatively, Valisure welcomes submissions of your sunscreen products for testing in our crowdsourced study. To participate, please register your sample submission here.  After testing, we will dispose of the products on your behalf. Valisure will be working with a licensed hazardous waste transporter to destroy all contaminated products at an EPA permitted incinerator.

For more information on handling household hazardous waste, the EPA website describes guidelines for safe management of household hazardous waste. It also lists links to hazardous waste disposal programs across the country.

Thank you for your diligence and dedication to your community’s safety.
