Good plan.   Three gallons is really small.  Betcha bigger stuff is happening on your campus if you have a theater costume department.

I have checked with them, and they also understood the limits of the information we have been provided by the manufacturer. This particular event will only generate 3 gallons, so we'll be collecting it for disposal by our hazardous waste contractor, rather than relying on the wastewater treatment plant to manage it.

Thanks for the further information on the subject.
