MSA - The Safety Company

Recycling and Disposing of MSA Products

MSA Products requiring disposal must be evaluated by customers on a case-by-case basis to ensure that disposal is environmentally responsible and in compliance with federal, state, and local laws Generalized disposal advice is not available because different customers have different disposal requirements. However, MSA will gladly provide technical data regarding the content of our products, thus assisting generators in making waste determinations. Additional information on waste disposal laws is available from federal and state environmental agencies, your organization's environmental management group, or a qualified consulting or waste disposal firm.

Per federal and state regulations, the generator and only the generator of a waste can determine if a waste is a regulated hazardous waste. No one else can make that decision. Therefore, MSA cannot make this determination for any customer. For example, we cannot tell a customer (1) where to dispose of an item, (2) what technologies to use to dispose of an item (i.e., incineration, landfill, etc.), (3) to simply send a product back, or (4) that a product is nonhazardous.



MSA will gladly provide information about product content (i.e., raw materials, components, etc.), which will assist the customer in making a waste determination. This information includes Material Safety Data Sheets  and Chemical Information Sheets. Additional information may also be obtained by calling the MSA Customer Service Center at 1-866-672-2222.
