Chemical Waste Pick up
All waste containers must have a “chemical waste” label affixed at the time waste is first placed into the container (Labels are available from OEHS upon request; #2171). Once all wastes are appropriately labeled:
- All chemical waste will be picked up by OEHS. Submit a completed Chemical Waste Inventory Form to firstname.lastname@example.org. All requests must be initiated by first submitting this form. The form insures the OEHS department is prepared to safely handle the wastes.
- Chemicals must never be transported in personal vehicles. Only OEHS may transport chemical waste in approved University vehicles.
- Chemicals must NOT be disposed of by evaporation. This includes evaporation in fume hoods or biosafety cabinets. Remember, chemical waste containers must be kept closed at all times except when actively adding chemical waste.
