Liquid-Containing Vial Waste

2_5_13LiquidBottles1   2_5_13LiquidBottles2

Labs which generate small (<20mL) vials, conical tubes, centrifuge tubes, etc. which contain liquid hazardous waste do not need to individually pour out these small amounts of liquid. Lab workers must containerize the vials in a single outer container such as a 4-liter glass bottle or a 5-gallon plastic bucket. This outer container is required to be labeled as Hazardous Waste, and all constituents found in the vials must be listed on this label.

Note that radioactive liquid scintillation vials are not managed in this way. Instructions on how to manage radioactive wastes may be found in Radiation Control Technique 2.

Labs must ensure that other wastes (gloves, papers, etc.) are not commingled with the vials.

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.
