Does the institution have strategies in place to safely dispose of all hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste and seek to minimize the presence of these materials on campus?:

A brief description of steps taken to reduce hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:

Generators of hazardous waste shall document a plan
to demonstrate efforts to reduce waste streams. Academic areas continue to strive towards microexperimentation in the laboratories; researchers are encouraged to order only those quantities that will be totally consumed as part of the experimentation project. Facilities personnel have made the use of non-toxic, environmentally “green” products a common practice,and promote the use of such materials wherever possible.

Complete record of all hazardous waste handling,generation, storage, and shipping including personnel training, shall be maintained.

A brief description of how the institution safely disposes of hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:

1. Fill Out Universal Waste Form, provided by
Environmental Health and Safety
2. Contact Environmental Health and Safety to
arrange a drop off date and time
3. Universal Waste to be taken to SR B52

These items are collected by the Department of
Environmental Health and Safety and stored in Science
Research Room B52. An inventory of all items placed into
this area is maintained, including quantities and dates. The
lamps, batteries and ballasts are shipped out periodically
during a calendar year.
