Excluded Solvent-Contaminated Wipes Label | Free Template
According to the EPA Wipes Rule, wipes must be contained in non-leaking, closed containers. Containers must be labeled “Excluded Solvent-Contaminated Wipes.”
Here is some additional information about accumulation containers for solvent-contaminated wipes:
- Containers must be able to contain free liquids, should free liquids occur. However, at the point of transport for cleaning or disposal, the solvent-contaminated wipes and their containers must contain NO free liquids.
- You cannot use open tubs anywhere in your facility for solvent-contaminated towels, but may use them for red general purpose towels.
- Containers must be closed and labeled while wipes are accumulated. When the containers are full they must have no free liquids and be sealed. (You are not required to keep a cover on clean product).
- Wipes may be accumulated for up to 180 days prior to being sent for cleaning or disposal. This 180-day clock begins the date the first solvent-contaminated wipe is placed in the container.
- A date on the label is not required – it is just a good way to track the 180 days.
- No minimum label size is specified by the EPA, however, it should be legible.
- There is no requirement for size or font type, however, it should be legible. The only requirement is the wording “excluded solvent-contaminated wipes”

The label with a date field allows you to write the date for when accumulation begins (accumulation cannot exceed 180 days). The date does not have to be on the label, but can be handy for tracking purposes. Use a “removable” label with this version so that a new date can be written each time accumulation starts over.
