  • To re-familiarize you with ASU’s waste program basics
  • To let you know of any program changes
  • To update you on the developments of the EHS Assistant on-line waste pickup
  • To inform you of any safety issues concerning waste storage or collection
rules to remember

  • Nothing down the drain, nothing in the trash
  • All chemical waste is considered hazardous
  • All chemical waste needs a completed hazardous waste tag prior to pickup
  • All liquid biowaste is considered chemical waste
  • All waste pickup request are made online

satellite accumulation requirements
Satellite Accumulation Requirements
  • Satellite accumulation is the area in your lab, classroom or shop where you keep your waste prior to pickup by EH&S
    • The rules state that the satellite area must be:
      • at or near the process generating the waste
      • be under the control of the generator
satellite containers
Satellite containers
  • All satellite containers must:
    • be labeled with the words “hazardous waste”*
    • be clean and compatible with the waste
    • include a descriptive waste name (flammable solvents, corrosive base, corrosive acid, nitric waste, acetone solution, piranha, etc) or a detailed listing of all the chemicals in the container*
    • be marked with the hazard* : flammable, corrosive, aqueous, etc. (listed as the category on the EH&S waste tag)
    • be kept closed at all times except when adding or removing waste

* A completed hazardous waste tag will include these items

ready for pickup
Ready for pickup
  • Prior to pickup each container needs a completed hazwaste tag with an accurate listing of all the chemicals in the waste including volumes or percentages adding up to 100%
  • You can tear off the white copy and use it to help you when making your online request – we only need the bottom copy
  • Tag numbers for each container are entered on the online request

Other waste types
  • Biowaste
    • Red bag, red drum or yellow drum

      • Bags and drums must be closed at all times except when adding waste
    • Sharps
      • All sharps must be in a ridged, puncture resistant, closed container
      • Sharps include needles, syringes, scalpels, Pasteur pipettes, and pipette tips from both biological and chemical use
      • Biological sharps must be autoclaved
  • Universal waste
    • All batteries must be collected for pickup and recycling
    • All intact light bulbs must be accumulated for pickup and recycling
    • Broken bulbs must be contained and treated as hazardous waste

More waste
  • Aerosol cans
    • All aerosol cans must be collected for pickup and recycling
    • Per regulation, no can is ever considered empty and can never be put in the trash
  • Oil
    • Oil is considered a chemical waste
    • Oil is collected for recycling

Regulated items and Recycling
  • Regulated items that cannot be recycled
    • Sharps
      • Syringes, Pasteur glass pipettes, pipette tips
    • Plastic lab ware
    • Plastic pipettes (regulated as biowaste)
  • Regulated items that can be recycled but only through EH&S (cannot be mixed with any other recycling items)
    • Intact light bulbs
    • Batteries
    • Aerosol cans
closed containers
Closed containers
  • Can I leave the funnel in the container, while I go out of the room or to another lab bench? I’m going to add more waste to the container is just a few minutes……

No, the rules state that the container must be closed at all time except when adding or removing waste.

safety update
Safety update
  • Do not use heavy walled glass containers (such as an acid bottle) for mixed waste streams. These containers allow a great deal of pressure to buildup in the bottle – several violent bottle bursts have occurred.
  • Use only thin walled clear glass bottles for mixed waste.
