Hazardous Waste

 

Each Department is responsible for proper management and disposal of its chemical wastes. Each employee is also accountable for compliance with University policy and with federal, state, and local regulations governing chemical wastes generated within the department.

Failure to properly identify, handle, and dispose of hazardous waste places you at risk for criminal and/or civil prosecution.

The tools shown below are designed to assist you with management of your hazardous wastes. For additional guidance from EH&S, please contact Al Simpson at 4672.
