Chemical Waste

The Chemical Waste program ensures that the University is operating to protect the safety and health of employees, students, and the environment through the proper management of hazardous chemical wastes.

This includes correctly identifying wastes, storing wastes properly, performing required weekly inspections, and ensuring that all storage time limits are met. The Chemical Waste program provides resources to assist with the labeling and shipping of waste materials.
