If you generate chemical waste please collect it in a safe location and label all containers clearly with waste labels supplied by the Environmental Health and Safety Office.
For any Chemical Waste or Lab/Teaching Biological Sharps Containers:
Fill out a Hazardous Waste/Surplus Chemical Collection Request Form and return it to the Environmental Health and Safety office by campus mail (MS: 9070) or Fax (650-6514).
The form can be downloaded from this page (click on the above underlined text) or sent to your department. After the Environmental Health and Safety office receives your waste collection form, Environmental Health and Safety staff from our department will remove it to a safe location.
The Environmental Health and Safety office collects all used batteries which are work-related, such as from a two-way radio or university equipment. They are disposed of as part of the chemical waste program.
Batteries which are from personal use, such as a personal calculator, may be deposited for recycling at the Bookstore.
