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:
The USF Hazardous Inventory Tracking System (HITS) is a web-based chemical inventory system used by USF System research and teaching laboratories to stores and track chemical inventories.
The chemical surplus program, available through HITS, facilitates the redistribution of unneeded and unwanted chemicals for reuse by others thereby reducing the total volume of hazardous waste disposed. Laboratories with a chemical surplus notify EH&S and the containers are moved to a chemical surplus inventory in the HITS System. All laboratory staff members have the ability to search the surplus and request that surplus chemicals be transferred to their inventory. The chemical(s) is delivered to the requesting lab by EH&S staff.
