Waste Chemical Collection
Federal, New York State, and Cornell University regulations require that all waste chemicals generated in the Department of Chemistry be disposed of properly. The primary responsibility for waste disposal lies with the generator of the waste. Chemicals that may be disposed of in the trash or down the drain are listed in the waste disposal section of the Chemical Hygiene Plan. Properly packaged, identified, and labelled waste chemicals not eligible for drain or trash disposal may be picked up by Environmental Health & Safety. Contact EH&S for pickup on their Cornell website.
