Hazardous Waste Disposal Training

Texas A&M University complies with hazardous waste disposal regulations by means of:

  • TAMU Hazardous Waste Management Program
    • http://ehsd-online/index.htm
  • TAMU Policy & Procedure Manual, §5.3.1
    • http://rules.tamu.edu/
  • Safety Manual, § 14
    • http://engineering.tamu.edu/safety/smanual.shtml

definition hazardous waste
Definition : Hazardous Waste
  • A Hazardous Waste is:
  • Any waste material listed or identified in
  • Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 261,
  • Subpart C or D (40 CFR 261)
  • Or which exhibits the characteristics of ignitability,
  • corrosivity , reactivity, or E. P. toxicity
    • also defined in Part 261.

hazardous waste containers tags and collections
Hazardous Waste:Containers,Tags and Collections

Proper containment, tagging, collection and

disposal are essential to the success of

the Hazardous Waste Program.

Individual Departments & Research Centers are

responsible for properly identifying the hazardous

wastes they generate, and for following university

waste disposal procedures.

waste containers
Waste Containers
  • In good condition
  • No leaks
  • Compatible with contents
  • Secure closures — Ex: screw caps
  • Do not overfill
  • Do not exceed rated capacity
  • For reused containers
    • Destroy and/or obliterate the original product label
    • Use a NEW Label to identify the waste material
    • Do NOT use a waste disposal tag as a container label!!!

Office of Engineering Safety

waste container labels
Waste Container Labels

EPA regulations require waste containers be labeled with at least:

  • The accumulation start date
  • The identity of the contents
  • The words “Hazardous Waste”

Office of Engineering Safety

completing waste tags
Completing Waste Tags
  • When a container is ready for disposal, complete a TAMU Waste Tag and place it on the container
  • TAMU Waste Tags are available from
    • Environmental Health & Safety Department
    • Office of Engineering Safety
  • A completed waste disposal tag must be attached to EACH waste container BEFORE disposal
  • DO NOT DATE THE TAG, AT THIS TIME

guidelines for completing waste tags
Guidelines for Completing Waste Tags
  • 1.Completely fill out BOTH the upper and lower sections of the tag (This information is essential for record keeping.)
  • 2.The REQUESTOR is the person (faculty, PI) in charge of the lab.
    • Use full chemical names or common names; chemical formulas or abbreviations are not acceptable.
    • List all chemical components in the waste container, including water.
    • Long lists may be continued on the back of the tag.

guidelines for completing waste tags1
Guidelines for Completing Waste Tags
  • 3.Indicate the percent concentration of potentially explosive materials
    • Safety Manual, § 13
    • Ex: picric acid, nitro compounds, other…
  • 4.Place additional hazard information in REMARKS.
    • Attach the tag to a string encircling the container.
    • Rubber bands, tape and wire are not acceptable.
  • 5.After completing the tag
    • Attach top part of the tag to the container
    • Mail bottom part of the tag to EHSD at MS 4472
    • Do not separate tag for RICH, WERC, or ZACH …

Guidelines for Completing Waste Tags
  • 6.Place tagged containers in your building’s “Satellite Waste Accumulation Area”.
    • If there is no designated SWAA, place the tagged waste container in your lab; identify the Building Name and Room No. on the tag.

special provisions
Special Provisions
  • TAMU facilities with large volumes of wastes receive a scheduled weekly pickup
    • Richardson, 115 RICH, Bldg #0387
    • Wisenbaker, 134 WERC, Bldg #0682
    • Zachary, 099 ZACH, Bldg #0518
  • In these 3 Engineering facilities ONLY, leave the bottom portion of the tag attached
    • Do not tear off bottom portion of tag

Office of Engineering Safety

collection and disposal
Collection and Disposal

EHSD HazMat team (845-2132) will collect

appropriately tagged waste containers.

Containers with improper caps, leaks, outside

contamination, or improper labeling will NOT be

picked up until these problems have been

corrected.

The Faculty/PI shall ensure that chemical

wastes are properly contained and labeled for

disposal, in a responsible and timely manner.
