Disposal of Ammonium Thiocyanate

Ammonium thiocyanate is classified as a Poison Schedule 5 and is harmful to aquatic organisms. Ammonium thiocyanate, which has started to liquefy should be disposed of by a licenced chemical waste disposal contractor. In the meantime, it should be stored segregated from incompatible chemicals.
