Chemical wastes:  The container must be labeled as unwanted material or hazardous waste, depending on your location, and submitted for a pickup online

Chemicals in original bottle with label: If your lab has large quantity then it should be handled as a lab cleanout, as long as this lab has not done a lab cleanout in 12 months.  These chemicals will need to be labeled and inventoried as described in the Laboratory Cleanout Guidance. If there only a few bottles the container must be labeled as unwanted material or hazardous waste, depending on your location, and submitted for a pickup online.

Batteries: EH&S takes all batteries but alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries can be put in the trash because the reclamation process generally utilizes more resources to reprocess and re-manufacture the materials than are gained from the battery recycling.  Submit an online request form and we will pick up and dispose of all other batteries. 

Light Bulbs: Laboratories generating occasional used light bulbs should carefully wrap the bulb for protection from breakage and utilize a blue “Unwanted Material” label.  The label must be completely filled out, including a start date.  For pick up, complete the online pickup request form. Facilities generating light bulbs should contact EHS for training. For more information  please see the policy.

Radioactive waste: This information can be found at Radiation Safety’s radioactive waste webpage.

Sharps Container: Sharps containers may be put in your Bio box or may submitted for pickup online.
