OP-T2-41: Chemical Reuse Inventory
|0.25 / 0.25||
Has the institution implemented a campus-wide inventory system to facilitate the reuse of laboratory chemicals?:
A brief description of the program:
The Environmental Health and Safety Office created the Orphan Chemical Program in 1998. This is a reuse program through which faculty can request surplus chemicals from EHS for use at no cost. This program has saved over $20,000 since its inception, while keeping chemical wastes out of the environment. Typically, chemicals remain in the program for three years before being properly disposed of if unrequested.
The Orphan Chemical Acquisition Form is located at: http://www.uncg.edu/sft/EnvironmentalAffairs/ChemWasteRemFormEHS2.pdf
