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:

UALR hazardous, special, universal, and non-regulated (and regulated) chemical waste is collected by EHS staff and by the Chemistry Department Lab Manager. Where possible, this material is recycled (batteries, printer cartridges). All other material is periodically picked up by a certified company that handles hazardous waste. □ Frequent drives are held to encourage UALR faculty, staff, and students to collect materials that can be recycled or reused (cell phones, printer cartridges, batteries, etc.).
Additional detail can be obtained from Vince Rodgers, EHS Manager (501-765-2517, varodgers@ualr.edu) or Leslie Coop, CCHO, Lab Manager (501-590-6026, lbcoop@ualr.edu).
