Does the institution have strategies in place to safely dispose of all hazardous, special (e.g. coal ash), universal, and non-regulated chemical waste and seek to minimize the presence of these materials on campus?:
Yes

A brief description of steps taken to reduce hazardous, special (e.g. coal ash), universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:

Recent university-wide EPA peer-audit evaluations revealed areas in need of improvement regarding the removal of hazardous wastes. Areas requiring attention were identified by the peer-audit and all chemicals that were out of use, or deemed unnecessary, were removed by a certified chemical waste removal service and disposed of in accordance with federal and state regulations.


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

Waste Stream Determinations are in place and adhered to for all departments with potential hazardous chemical outputs. Taylor University subcontracts certified chemical waste removal services to pick up and properly dispose of chemical and other hazardous wastes in accordance with federal and state regulations.
