Subject: RE: [DCHAS-L] Disposal of butyl lithium

Beware. Waste is hazardous when generated (provided it meets the  
definition of solid waste, which this will). Keeping the butyl lithium  

as commercial chemical product to be used is okay (speculative  
accumulation is allowed in this case), but the moment the decision is  

made to dispose of it, this butyl lithium becomes a hazardous waste  
(and all rules apply).

Also understand that you=92ve described that the lab =93does not want to 
use and is trying to dispose=85=94 It sounds like the decision has 
been made. Get your EHS department involved.
