Tier2-4: Chemical Reuse Inventory
Office of Sustainability
Has the institution implemented a campus-wide inventory system to facilitate the reuse of laboratory chemicals?:
A brief description of the program:
Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) provides a service for UF faculty and lab personnel, the UF ChemSwap. The UF ChemSwap provides a list of free research chemicals currently available to laboratories on the UF main campus and at PK Yonge School. The free chemicals are delivered with an MSDS by an EH&S staff member directly to your lab. All the chemicals are in the original, unopened container. UF labs can save money and reduce waste by redistributing unwanted chemicals.
