Chemical Waste Management

The chemical laboratory workers create waste which has to be handled according to the instructions. The chemical wastes are collected separately and treated accordingly. Some of the chemicals are recycled whereas others are disposed.

Chemical waste is defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. Definitions, management practices and compliance are outlined in 40 Code of Federal Regulations and the Delaware Rules Governing Hazardous Waste.
