How to dispose of ferric chloride


New Member
Hi All,

I did a search here before posting and couldn't find an answer.

What's the safest way to dispose of ferric chloride?

Obviously it can be neutralized with baking soda but from there can you just dump it in a field or dump it down the drain or something else?

Most research on the internet came up with people using ferric for PCB boards and they talk a lot about the copper sludge residual. That doesn't seem to be a concern here with life making (so I do make some copper cu mai).
Locally we have a waste facility that will take hazardous material. That’s what I’d look for , near you.
