Hazardous waste disposal

Hazardous waste disposal

Hazardous waste cannot be placed in the regular waste stream, so the Hazardous Waste Managment System (HWMS) was developed. The HWMS is a joint initiative of Brock University's Office of Environment, Health and Safety and Science Stores and consists of the proper separation, identification, and packaging of the waste at the lab level; safe and effective internal transfer, bulking and storage; and transport facilitated by trained technitians and detailed recordkeeping to meet regulatory guidelines. Hazardous waste removal procedures (calendar of pick up dates, forms and instructions) can be found on the Science Stores website.
