Use It Or Lose It: Laboratory Chemical Disposal

May 6, 2014

Many educational facilities, including high schools and colleges, have laboratories that contain small amounts of various chemicals, solvents, acids, bases, and other reagents used primarily for training and experimentation.  Often these materials become out-of-date, partially used, contaminated, or simply no longer considered of value and are subsequently characterized as hazardous waste. In some cases, the containers used to store these commonly used materials become damaged and unfit for continued use.

Any of the circumstances described above require that the school adopts and initiates a plan for the safe and secure disposal of these materials in order to protect the school, its student population, the staff and administration, and the community in which it is located.

Hazardous Waste Experts has become the primary choice for education administrators of who require services that are professional, compliant, cost effective, and executed discreetly to avoid disruption to the school and its student body.  We provide the appropriate packaging, collection, transport, disposal, and legal documentation of all material during “off-hours” to ensure an efficient and non-intrusive process.

In addition, we offer the convenience of on-site collection for other “universal waste” (such as light bulbs, batteries, or paint waste). This dismisses the need for a school district—or multiple campus facilities—to collect, transport, and aggregate these materials that have been generated by several locations.

With the school year coming to a close, now is the time to act and eliminate the professional liability associated with your hazardous and universal waste streams. To arrange for the quick and hassle-free removal of these materials, or for laboratory chemical disposal services, contact Hazardous Waste Experts at 800-936-2311 to speak with an expert or click here to email us.

Disposal of hazardous waste doesn’t have to be painful.
