Hazardous Waste Labeling

Reminder:  Hazardous Waste Labeling

To help address waste containers that have been neglected in laboratories, we have (for a number of years) required that all of the accumulation containers be marked with the “Accumulation Start Date,” the date when the first waste was placed into the container.

When lab inspectors come to your lab, they will audit the hazardous waste accumulation areas and look to see that there are no waste containers older than 6 months.

Have a look yourself and submit any old waste containers for disposal!
