Chemical Treatment and Recycling

Pollution prevention is designed to reduce, eliminate or prevent pollution at its source. Efforts towards pollution prevention at the UW include treatment by generator, universal waste management and recycling.

Treatment by generator refers to treating your own hazardous waste, which helps the UW avoid the risk and cost of hazardous waste transport and disposal.

By law, Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) is required to report all hazardous waste treatment at the University. If treating waste, you are required to:

  1. Have an approved procedure;
  2. Document training; and
  3. Keep an updated Chemical Treatment Log.

If you would like to begin treating any of the chemicals listed below, contact us at 206.616.5835 or chmwaste@uw.edu and we can help you get started.
