Never Dump Down the Drain
Kerosene is considered hazardous waste and should never be dumped down the drain. Doing so will contaminate drinking water sources.
Store in Opaque Plastic Container
To store kerosene, keep inside opaque plastic containers and out of direct sunlight. Take these precautions to keep fuel safe from combusting or losing its fuel quality.
Ways to Reduce
Use an Alternative Oil
If you use kerosene for an oil lamp, try using a non-petroleum-based oil instead. Check out these alternative oil options.
