Hazardous Waste Management Program


Faculty and staff

Policy Statement

To comply with federal (USEPA), state (NYSDEC) and local hazardous waste disposal regulations, the University requires that arrangements for off campus disposal of hazardous materials be coordinated only by the Environmental Health Office (EHO). All University employees who work with hazardous materials and who may need to dispose of residual quantities of these materials are expected to be familiar with the Hazardous Waste Management Program and be able to initially identify waste and or waste streams which may be regulated and contact EHO for an evaluation. EHO is responsible for maintaining contracts with disposal firms and maintaining documentation of disposal activity.
