Director of Physical Plant
Does the institution have strategies in place to safely dispose of all hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste and seek to minimize the presence of these materials on campus?:
A brief description of steps taken to reduce hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:
The University of Mount Union makes every attempt to reduce hazardous, universal, and not-regulated chemical waste through a joint effort by the Physical Plant and the Natural Science Department. Purchase of only needed chemicals for specific laboratory testing are limited and tracked by the institution's chemical hygiene officer. Hazardous chemicals are closely monitored by the Maintenance Supervisor of Physical Plant.
A brief description of how the institution safely disposes of hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:
The Chemical Hygiene Office and Physical Plant coordinates a once a year disposal of all hazarous and chemical waste materials. An outside contractor licensed to handle this type of waste is hired to pick up and properly dispose of all materials.
