It is not clear to me whether you want information on a suitable container for shipping within a labpack or as a separate package. If the latter, simply look up the proper shipping name (pyridine) in 49 CFR anduse one of the UN-listed packages permitted (49CFR 173.202 in my obsolete copy). Then go to a supplier of DOT-rated shipping containers and purchase the size and type you prefer (for 2 L it will probably be a combination package consisting of an inner HDPE bottle and outer fiber box).

Good Morning,


Can you recommend a container for storing Pyridine Waste that will be appropriate for shipping for offsite disposition?


I'm looking for something in the 2L range=E2=80=94analysis requires very small amounts and disposition would probably be annually.


Thanks for your help.
