A brief description of steps taken to reduce hazardous, special (e.g. coal ash), universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:
PLU has both a Pollution Prevention Plan and a Chemical Hygiene Plan that are updated and improved yearly in order to reduce the amount of hazardous waste being produced.
A brief description of how the institution safely disposes of hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:
At PLU, each department disposes of its own waste. Each department uses proper labeling, storage and disposal of waste through Facilities Management. From Facilities Management, hazardous waste is picked up and disposed of by corresponding companies.
