The methods outlined below can help campus personnel determine whether waste or surplus chemicals meet the definition of regulated waste. All chemicals found to be regulated must be managed through Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S).
Each user is responsible for determining whether their chemicals are hazardous waste, and reporting them to EHS for collection and disposal.
For assistance designating wastes, contact EHS at 372-7163.
Chemicals may be designated as waste based on one or more of the following:
- They are federally listed wastes
- They are federally-defined characteristic wastes
- They are state-defined criteria wastes
