Hazardous and Universal Wastes
The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) provides training and assistance to campus departments on how to manage their hazardous materials and reduce their hazardous waste generation. Pollution prevention is one of the keys to maintaining a sustainable environment.

EHS works with disposal companies to recycle as much of the wastes as possible to ensure the minimum impact to the environment. Hazardous waste includes lab chemicals, lubricants, paints, and solvents among others. EHS also collects universal wastes such as batteries, light tubes and thermometers.

Campus departments can call EHS at 278-5165 or 278-6456 to obtain proper labels and schedule a pickup or drop-off for hazardous and universal wastes. This service is provided at no cost to any campus department for routine items. For more information, visit the hazardous waste webpage at and/or the universal waste webpage at
