Hazardous waste

The hazardous waste management system is designed to deal with hazardous wastes on campus in an environmentally responsible manner; maintaining compliance with local regulations and demonstrating a best practices approach to environmental safety.  

The last hazardous waste pickup for 2021 will be Thursday, December 16. 

Regular pickups resume again January 6, 2022.

Please ensure you have enough waste containers to get your labs through the 2 weeks of no pickups over the holiday closure. We will stock the Petch 035 container self-serve area accordingly for those labs that require emergency containers during the closure.

 Hazardous waste disposal form

  • Pick-up is every Thursday, and requests must be in Wednesdays by 4:00 pm.
  • To log-in to the system, use your NetLink ID and password.
  • Please ensure that all waste containers have an appropriate label which identifies the contents (no symbols or abbreviations please).
  • Each container should also have a neon green sticker attached: “Hazardous Waste For Pickup.” This will allow our waste contractors to identify containers that need to be removed. Extra stickers are available by contacting Occupational Health, Safety and Environment.
  • General hazardous waste chemical disposal protocols
