Hazardous Waste Management

What services do we provide?

EHS personnel are responsible for classifying, collecting, transporting, and disposing of hazardous materials generated by University activities.  Other responsibilities include: maintaining hazardous waste records, submitting hazardous waste reports, acting as a liaison with state and federal agencies, providing emergency response to chemical spills and incidents involving hazardous materials, recycling hazardous materials, and providing technical support and training for the University community.  It is the responsibility of EHS personnel to confirm whether or not a discarded hazardous material is, or is not, a hazardous waste.

What is your role?

All University faculty, staff and students are responsible for complying with the guidelines and procedures of the University policy.  Individuals must properly identify, characterize, and prepare their materials for collection and disposal by EHS personnel.  Specifically, individuals using hazardous materials must accurately identify and label all materials; accumulate and store materials safely; and request collection of the material by submitting electronic disposal requests to EHS.  Every possible effort to minimize the quantity or toxicity of hazardous waste generated must be made by each individual generator by following the waste minimization guidelines provided in this policy.  It is the responsibility of all supervisors and instructors to ensure that employees, students, guests, and visitors are aware of and follow the guidelines and procedures of this policy.
