Hazardous Waste Cans for Flammable Waste Disposal

When it comes to the proper disposal of solvents, thinners, linseed oil, and other flammable liquids-soaked rags, nothing beats Justrite Oily Waste Cans. These specially designed steel cans are an essential companion in any facility that uses cloths, wipes, and cleaning rags.

Improperly disposing of rags containing flammable liquids poses a serious fire risk. But with Justrite Oily Waste Cans, you can protect your facility from potential fires caused by spontaneous combustion, sparks, or even careless use of smoking materials. Our cans are engineered to keep your workspace safe, while offering maximum convenience.

How to Dispose of Oily Rags

Equipped with a self-closing lid, our cans effectively block fire transmission from the outside. Should a fire reach the contents of the can while the lid is open, it is instantly snuffed out as soon as the lid closes. Additionally, a closed lid deprives any internal combustion resulting from spontaneous combustion of oxygen, further minimizing the risk.

The volume of waste in the can, along with air availability and the length of time the waste has been stored, contribute to heat generation, which can precede spontaneous combustion. That's why frequent emptying of the cans is crucial for maintaining a safe environment. In fact, OSHA recommends emptying the cans at least once daily, at the end of each shift.

To prevent temperature build-up, our cans are ingeniously designed with an elevated bottom, ensuring proper air circulation for heat dissipation. This thoughtful feature helps keep the temperature under control, further reducing the risk of fire. In addition, SoundGard™ models reduce lid closure noise for quiet-working settings, and foot-operated models allow for hand-free opening.

Choose from our comprehensive range of sizes, and rest assured that all our oil waste cans containers approved by FM, UL, and TÜV. All oily waste disposal safety containers carry a ten-year warranty.
