By way of explanantion; "AFFF" is Aqueous Film Forming Foam - containing PFOS (and a range of cancer causing chemicals, notably PFAS). FRV and FES only use and supply "Fluorine-Free" foam and we have been removing and disposing PFAS contaminated extinguishers for the past few years. You can identify these terms on the extinguishers and we are happy to provide further guidance via service@fes.com.au

Should add, that all our disposals are in accordance with EPA certified guidelines.

Under the EP Act there are Duties of persons depositing industrial waste - which is generators of the waste. Some parts ectinguishers etc can be industrial waste. PFAS can only be accepted by certain licensed waste receivers and needs to be tracked.
