I asked a WASH course facilitator and he suggested the following, but please be careful with the test and adhere to advice if ingredients still active :

Advice is: Carry out a bucket test to identify if there is any active Chlorine left. If there is then put the sachets to one side for another year or two and try again until the Chlorine, which is the hazardous element has ' deactivated'. When and only when this is the case, the sachets can be disposed of as household waste.

Any comments welcome. Pauline REDR.
