All chemical waste containers must be labeled with an accurate orange chemical waste label. Liquid waste containers must be stored in secondary containment and in appropriate cabinets (corrosive cabinets, flammable cabinets or under fume hood cabinets). Refer to the Laboratory Chemical Waste Management Procedures for the complete procedures on chemical waste management. It is still necessary to segregate organic and inorganic corrosive waste as well as solvent and aqueous from each other.
Effective January 1, 2005 all corrosive waste must be managed in these containers. DEHS will not accept any chemical waste (except waste reagent grade chemicals) in glass or plastic-coated glass containers.
NOTE: EHS does not provide new chemical waste containers. New containers can be purchased from Fischer Scientific
Questions regarding chemical waste issues may be addressed to EHS or call 831-8475.
