Chemical Amnesty Day (posted on June 30, 2009)

Chemical Amnesty Day 

EHS/RM regularly picks-up chemical waste throughout the year but since it costs money to dispose of many researchers hold on to the waste rather than disposing of it.  Once in a while, EHS/RM sponsors an amnesty day where individuals can dispose of accumulated waste for free. 

In June 2009, EHS/RM in cooperation with UDRI offered researchers and laboratory managers a chance to drop off and dispose of their chemical waste including hazardous waste free of charge. 

During this two-day event, EHS/RM collected over 7,000 pounds of chemical waste.
