What is chemical waste?
  • Any chemical that is “CRIT”:
    • Corrosive: 2 ≥ pH or 12.5 ≤ pH
    • Reactive: reacts violently or generates toxic/flammable gases
    • Ignitable: flash point of less than 140° F
    • Toxic: cause injury or death by inhalation, absorption, ingestion, or injection
  • Listed wastes
  • Universal wastes (e.g., batteries, fluorescent lights)
when do chemicals become waste
When do chemicals become waste?
  • Expired chemicals
  • Spent chemicals/waste that has bee used for intended purpose
  • Unstable materials
  • Unwanted surplus
where to store waste
Where to store waste?
  • Waste can be stored in the lab in a satellite accumulation area (SAA)
  • Everyone should know where the SAA is located
how to store waste
How to store waste?
  • Segregate waste by chemical characteristics (i.e.: flammables should not be stored with acids)
    • Same storage principles apply for raw materials as with waste
  • In accordance with storage limits
  • All containers must be labeled and intact
  • Must be inspected weekly
chemical waste storage limits
Chemical waste storage limits
  • No more than 2 gallons of flammable liquids outside of a flammable cabinet
  • 10 gallons of waste per SAA
  • 1 quart of acutely toxic (P-listed) waste
what should a weekly inspection entail
What should a weekly inspection entail?
  • Check that containers are in good condition with no leaks
  • Containers must be closed with a proper lid (no parafilm!)
  • UCD waste label is attached and completed for each container
  • No incompatible wastes are stored together
  • Weekly log sheet should be signed
