Affixing a label to a container:
We recommend laminating the labels, and then tape the label to the container. Magnetic tape affixed to a laminated label works very well. HINT: For labels to be effective, they have to be visible and clearly legible. If a label cannot be seen turn the container so it can. If it is not legible, put a new one on that is.
You do not have to have a color printer to use these labels for hazardous waste purposes. You may simply print them in gray scale and use them. The NFPA Label must be printed in color and the DOT labels must be in color if used for shipping instead of accumulation.
