Chemical Waste Request Program

The Hazardous Waste group within EHS is charged with managing hazardous wastes (both chemical and infectious) generated by research at The Ohio State University Columbus Campus and the various regional campuses. The Ohio State University Chemical Waste program is utilized to pick up and dispose of these hazardous chemicals.

Individuals may submit chemical disposal requests to the Environmental Health and Safety using EHS Online at EHS Online Waste Disposal Request. Wastes are transferred to the Resource Conservation and recovery lab and evaluated for reuse prior to being shipped for disposal.
