All waste must have a hazardous waste label affixed to the container before used and the label must contain the following information:
All hazardous waste containers must be kept closed at all times unless adding waste. All waste must be put in EPA approved containers. To obtain these, contact the EHS office. All waste must be kept in a satellite accumulation area, which must be marked with the words "Hazardous Waste". When the container is full, contact the EHS office for pickup.
