Chemical Waste

EH&S has an online chemical pick-up request form. This form should be immediately filled out when: 

  • Unwanted and old chemical reagents need to be removed;
  • The satellite accumulation waste container is full and
  • There is more than 5 gallons of hazardous waste or one quart of acutely hazardous waste accumulated.

Research personnel can submit chemical pick-up requests electronically to EH&S. The request must be completely filled out with the requested information. Once the request is submitted a return email is sent to confirm the request. Personnel from EH&S will respond to chemical pick-up request within 72 hours of receipt of request. Unknown chemicals will not be removed from the laboratory.

Review the Laboratory Safety Manual or Hazardous Waste Management Plan for additional information concerning allowable amount accumulated, labeling and permitted accumulation time.
