This book will prove useful not only for both large and small academic institutions, but for small businesses as well. As small quantity generators and conditionally excluded small quantity generators, secondary schools, colleges, universities, and small businesses will identify with the problems-and solutions-presented here.
The approaches in this book can save many chemistry departments thousands of dollars. In addition, they significantly clarify the often complicated legal requirements placed on both secondary and post-secondary institutions by state and federal government.
This informative book offers specific, practical, and cost-effective solutions to the problems of waste disposal, from a description of a successful program to conduct a one-time cleanout of secondary schools, to the identification of chemicals that have no identity.
Approaches to waste disposal taken around the country, including in-house treatment, lab packing, and the benefits of recycling through waste exchange programs are covered.
