Kitty liter (clay type!) then sweep into container large enough to accommodate, Label. Take to Satellite Accumulation Area (SAA) Keep in separate container from other wastes until put in lab pack by commercial disposal company.

Someone asked me how large of a spill they could clean up themselves without calling our internal emergency spill team. I realize it depends a lot on what was spilled, but let's assume it is something nasty like methylene chloride or benzene. Is there
a good rule of thumb for how large of a spill (outside a hood) can be cleaned up safely?
