EMC Insurance Companies has compiled resource material for schools.  We conduct chemical disposal and safety assessments for schools we insure where we prepare an inventory of chemicals for disposal and provide this to environmental disposal companies that perform lab packs and can provide the school with cost estimates for disposal.

We also conduct live training via web-delivery for science teachers, administrators, custodial staff, maintenance folks, and art teachers.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

                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.
