Make sure the lid is closed on the container when you are not adding waste.

Handle all waste in a manner that minimizes breakage, prevents fire, explosion, and the unauthorized release of any Universal Waste or component of a Universal Waste to the environment.

Immediately clean up and place in a labeled container, as specified above, any waste that is broken or spilled.

When the container is either full or 90 days after the initial accumulation date, call the Environmental Health & Safety Department at Extension 4697 and make arrangements to have the waste picked up or transported to the Hazardous Materials Facility within 3 days.

A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for institution-generated materials:

California State Polytechnic University, Pomona is partnering with eWaste Center Inc. to provide a convenient E-Waste recycling solution for the campus and local communities, including businesses. The program is managed by the Environmental Health & Safety Department in cooperation with Facilities Management, as part of the University's overall recycling program.

Hundreds of thousands of computers, monitors, televisions and other electronic items are replaced in California every year. This “E-Waste” contains valuable materials and can be hazardous if not disposed of properly. When you “e-recycle”, you’re helping to protect our environment and create new jobs in California. As of February 8, 2005 it is against the law for households or businesses to dispose of these materials in the regular trash.
