Polytechnique has a policy regarding hazardous and chemical waste management, available at: http://www.polymtl.ca/sg/docs_officiels/1310env2.htm
The internal procedure to recover hazardous waste is the following:
1- Gather products by type of risk (WHMIS classifications).
2. Pack the product in boxes, make sure that the boxes can be closed.
3. List the products per box. Use the document "List of hazardous waste" available on the site: http://www.polymtl.ca/sst/Services/Matieresdangereuses.php
4. Fill a work request and forward it to the maintenance service, accompanied by the list prepared in 3.
5. After verification, maintenance workers go directly to the local to collect material.
Nothing significant happened in the last three years.
Bins are disposed in the school to collect all sorts of electronic waste (computers, screens, cellphones etc...). For the small electronics waste (batteries, cellphones etc...), the bins are from Electrobac which ensures a responsible disposal of the electronical waste. Electrobac sends the collected electronic waste to recycling centers that are certified by the Recycler Qualification Office (http://rqp.ca/).
For bigger electronics equipment (computers, printers...), another bin is available where students or employees can safely dispose their waste. This bin is collected by E-Cycle Solutions. They send the electronic waste to their Valleyfield (QC) center and later send a certificate of responsible waste management to Polytechnique.
