Disposal of Hazardous Waste


All Hazardous Waste at the University of Florida must be properly disposed of through the Environmental Health and Safety Department’s Chemical and Radioactive Waste Disposal group. Sink disposal of hazardous chemicals is expressly forbidden.

Lab waste managers may submit an online request for chemical waste pickup. Prior to submitting this request, the waste manager must ensure that all containers to be collected are tightly capped and properly labeled. Any waste which has leaked or been spilled on the outside of the container should be cleaned up prior to collection. Liquid waste containers should have adequate headspace at the top of the container (approximately 1” at least) to minimize leakage during transport. It is very important that labels be checked for accuracy prior to collection, and approximate percentages for each constituent should be estimated by a knowledgeable person in the lab.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
