We have no coal ash disposal needs on campus.


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

We have an area where students, faculty, and staff can bring old cfl light bulbs, printer cartridges, and batteries for recycling. We send all old E-Waste (@ 4 tons per year) to be recycled through the Apple E-Waste program so that toxic chemicals from old computer components don't leach into landfills.
