Once the job is done, where/how do you get rid of white spirit, emulsion laden water etc.

I have moved to a smaller property and don't the 'waste land' any more to dispose of these solutions safely.

Help and suggestions please.

Well, if you have an old not poodle tub you can put it in that and leave it for several days, it will separate and you can use another old not poodle tub to pour it through tights, and then back into a bottle for reuse.

Let the one with the bits in just dry up and dispose of in the bin as normal.

What are you doing keeping tights in stock? ;)

Well, once the weekend is over and they have a run in them I don't need them any more ;)

As for the emulsion water, not a lot you can do with that apart from put it in a bucket, let it settle then pour that down the drain until you get the sediment start moving and then stop, or just let it evaporate.
