Chemical and Hazardous Waste Information and Forms

Investigators should develop waste minimization practices within their laboratories. The American Chemical Society has published a booklet – “Less is Better” which serves as a starting point for waste minimization practices. It is suggested that this booklet be reviewed as experiments or procedures are designed or conducted.

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety is also responsible for the RECY-CHEM Program. The RECY-CHEM Program takes unused, and unneeded chemicals from labs and distributes them to other ECU programs FREE of charge.
