Also, MSDS Sheets for chemicals should have an EPA number on them which you can
refer to when speaking the local regulatory agenices.

Disposal laws, at least in the three states I have worked in, are set by
state and local regulatory agencies, and vary widely from area to area.  You
may check with your local waste water treatment facility.  Also check with
whatever agency your state utilizes to regulate environmental quality.  Good
