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

Hazardous and dangerous waste are packaged and sent to a regulated Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF) on the state contract. As part of the contract review, all proposed TSDF are inspected by a committee of state agencies. Manifests are completed and maintained for all shipments. Universal wastes (lamps and electronics) are recycled through the state contract. Rechargeable batteries are recycled through RBRC via a vendor. Non regulated chemical waste is treated by neutralization and disposed to the sanitary sewer.
