Hazardous Waste

The Hazardous Waste Program provides guidelines and resources to protect the university community and the environment from dangers posed by improper handling/disposal of hazardous waste, and ensure compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.

Hazardous wastes can be solids, liquids, gases, or sludges. They can be derived research processes or simply discarded commercial products such as cleaning fluids or pesticides.

A hazardous waste exhibits any of these four characteristics: ignitibility, corrosivity, toxicity, and reactivity.
