I’m helping with a workshop for high school chemistry teachers, and several say they have stockrooms containing old, or excess, chemicals which they need to get rid of. I remember some kind of program to help with this, especially for small schools with no funds for a clean-up. However, I don’t remember the particulars. Can someone steer me in the right direction. The schools in questions are in Kentucky and Ohio.
Thanks, for your assistance.
