Container And Storage Requirements

  1. Chemicals must be placed in sealed containers that show no signs of leakage. Bottles with broken caps or stoppers will not be collected. Waste containers will not be returned to the generators unless arrangements have been made with this department prior to the pick-up.
  2. Containers should be full, but not overflowing (3-4 inches below cap).
  3. Waste must be stored according to chemical compatibility in proper storage cabinets.
