"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Does the institution have strategies in place to safely dispose of all hazardous, special (e.g. coal ash), universal, and non-regulated chemical waste and seek to minimize the presence of these materials on campus?:
Yes

A brief description of steps taken to reduce hazardous, special (e.g. coal ash), universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:

The art department no longer uses oil-based paints. We have greatly reduced our use of non-tclp compliant fluorescent lamps. We have reduced our use of oil-based paint for maintenance painting. New purchases of lab materials for chemistry faculty are based on the least hazardous products and lowest quantities necessary.


A brief description of how the institution safely disposes of hazardous, universal, and non-regulated chemical waste:

We use a state contract with a certified contractor to pick up and dispose of hazardous and universal wastes from our campus 1 to 2 times per year.
