ILLUSTRATED GUIDE FOR THE DISPOSAL OF CHEMICALS USED IN THE ILLICIT MANUFACTURE OF DRUGS
United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Vienna, 119 pp, 2017

This illustrated disposal guide focuses on basic safety, handling, storage, and disposal procedures for chemicals associated with the manufacture of illicit drugs. It is intended specifically for use in remote locations that lack an appropriate waste management infrastructure or expert technical support and where there is an immediate need for the timely management or disposal of potentially hazardous seized chemicals or waste. It is acknowledged that some of the disposal procedures detailed in this guide may result in temporary environmental degradation; however, where followed appropriately, the procedures detailed will substantially reduce or eliminate potential risks to responder and resident human health, communities, and the environment. https://www.oecd-ilibrary.org/public-health/illustrated-guide-for-the-disposal-of-chemicals-used-in-the-illicit-manufacture-of-drugs_d819611f-en
