Has the institution implemented a campus-wide inventory system to facilitate the reuse of laboratory chemicals?:

A brief description of the program:

Bryant University's Science & Technology Department tracks chemical purchases & locations through an excel inventory system. The laboratory staff can access this inventory, and chemicals are shared to avoid excess purchasing. Hazardous chemicals are ordered in the smallest quantities possible to limit waste generation. At Bryant, safety is top priority and recycling or reusing hazardous waste is not allowed. Furthermore, Bryant is not permitted by the RI Department of Environmental Management or the EPA to recycle hazardous waste. All hazardous waste generated in the laboratories is transported offsite for disposal by a hazardous waste vendor.
