The proper disposal of waste chemicals at Brown University is taken very seriously.  Disposal of waste in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local regulations is required.  The responsibility for the identification and handling of wastes within each area necessarily rests with the individuals who have created the waste.  Once waste has been identified in an area and all requirements pertaining to the management and storage of that waste have been met, the Office of Environmental Health and Safety will manage the ultimate disposal of the waste.

The Office of the Provost’s “General Environmental Health and Safety Management Policy Statement” outlines the responsibilities of Faculty, staff and students as it applies to complying with Federal and state requirements as well as Brown policy and procedures with regard to hazardous waste.  This document can be found at the following link:
