Requirements for the Waste Container

  • All waste containers must be…
  • Clearly labeled with their contents.
  • Paint over or remove any old labels.
  • 2. Kept at or near (immediate vicinity) the site of generation and under control of the generator.
  • 3. Compatible with contents (e.g. acid should not be stored in metal cans).
  • 4. Closed at all times except when waste is being added to container.
  • 5. Properly identified with completed waste tags before pickup is requested.
  • 6. Safe for transport with non-leaking screw-on caps.
  • 7. Filled to safe level (below the bottom of the neck of the container or a 2-inch head
  • space for 55 gallon drums).

Accumulation Guideline

  • - keep different hazardous waste separately for correct disposal method and cost efficiency.
  • - do not mix incompatible waste in the same container or place waste
  • in an unwashed container.
  • 1. Halogenated solvents (e.g., methylene chloride, chloroform, carbon tetrachloride)
  • Note: Disposal of non-halogenated solvents contaminated with halogens costs 4-5
  • times more than that of non-halogenated solvents.
  • 2. Used oil must be kept as uncontaminated as possible in order to be recycled.
  • 3. Bases
  • 4. Metal-bearing waste (e.g. barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury,
  • nickel, selenium, silver, and thallium)
  • 5. flammableandcorrosive
  • 6. Special wastes (e.g. cyanide, sulfide, pesticides, oxidizers, organic acids, explosives
  • and peroxides) should be collected individually whenever possible.

Minimization of waste and Cost

  • Inventory
    • Dispose expired or unused chemicals
    • Maintain labels and containers in good condition
    • Check inventory before ordering to avoid duplication
  • Purchasing
    • Purchase only the amount you need.
    • Check catalogs for quantity choices.
  • Use
    • Reduce the scale of the experiment.
    • Share unused portions with other researchers.
    • Use alternate research methods.
    • Select less hazardous chemicals.
    • Reuse chemicals before disposal if possible.
  • Accumulation
    • Separate non-halogenated from halogenated solvents.
    • Separate acids from acids/metal mixtures.
