Containers must be closed at all times during storage, except when waste is being added or removedSyringes should go into trash can after previous removal of hazardous chemicalsStock room provides 5 gallon carboysContainers should not be stacked, instead call for pick-upSeparate halogenated from non-halogenated liquidsContainers must be closed at all times during storage, except when waste is being added or removedSyringes should go into trash can after previous removal of hazardous chemicals

Chemical waste that cannot be poured into the 5-gallon waste cans; complete a Hazardous Waste Disposal Tag, attach the tag to the container of waste and contact EH&S at x4444 for a pick up. 2Sharps: any material that has the potential to penetrate a trash bag and cut or puncture housekeeping personnelExamples: broken glass, needles, scalpels, etc. All sharps should be disposed by placing these items in a sharps containerSharps Disposal

What are sharps? Any material that has the potential to penetrate a trash bag and cut or puncture housekeeping personnel.

Examples include broken glass, needles, scalpels, etc.

All sharps should be disposed by placing these items in a sharps container (obtain from EH&S or chemistry storeroom at no cost). 3

Broken glass should be disposed of in a broken glass containerWhen you are ready for disposal, tape the lid closed and leave it outside the door of the labBroken GlassDo not overload the box or place any liquid in the boxBroken glass should be disposed of in a broken glass container (available from the Chemistry Stockroom).

If a broken glass container is not available, a heavy-duty cardboard box will do.

Place the material in the box. When you are ready for disposal, tape the lid closed, mark the box "broken glass," and take the box to the loading dock of your building.

Do not overload the box or place any liquid in the box.
