Solvent Waste

Solvent Waste

Halogenated and non-halogenated solvents should be collected in separate 5-litre containers. Each container should be labelled indicating the responsible research group and whether it contains halogenated or non-halogenated waste. Yellow labels can be obtained from stores.

Disposal Procedure

  • Ensure the lid is closed tightly.
  • Label the container (yellow label from stores), highlighting the type of waste and group name.
  • Remove to the external solvent store and place on the appropriate shelves.

Waste solvents are collected at the start of each month by an external contractor.
