To keep everyone safe, please take these SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:

  • Bring products in the original containers—Do not mix products!
  • Make sure containers are properly sealed and labeled correctly.
  • If the container leaks, pack in larger container and use absorbents, such as cat litter, to soak up leaks.
  • If you do not know what it is, mark it “unknown.”
  • If possible, place materials in cardboard boxes—boxes with dividers make for good packaging.
  • Place materials in areas away from drivers and passengers
