Chemical Waste

Principle Investigators and other supervisory personnel in areas which generate regulated waste are responsible for the proper characterization and labelling of waste materials. This information must be provided to EHSS staff prior to removal for disposal and is the crucial first step in the waste management program. Failure to properly identify regulated waste could lead to environmental damage and civil penalties. For information regarding the various types of hazardous wastes, please select from our Waste Management programs menu. If you have any questions regarding the handling or disposal of regulated waste please call 443-9132.

Generators may request a chemical waste pick up by completing and submitting an EHSS Request For Service form or by contacting EHSS at 314.443.4132.
