Each sector table has been transferred into a readable format.

Dispose, don’t pour!
Anything you pour down your drain, sink or toilet can eventually end up in our rivers or sea! Never dispose of liquids such as oils, grease, or hazardous liquids – like paint thinners or unused paint – by pouring them down the drain. Instead, collect them in one box and dispose with the rest of your waste. Keep them all in their individual packaging, to avoid possible chemical reactions. This will also make it easier for them to be identified during waste collection. If applicable, take them to your community collection point.
