Can some one lead me to resources on how waste is collected and handled in teaching labs. There is some debate going on at my school. We do not have a chemical hygiene officer. Chemical waste falls under the Emergency Response Manager. She did not like our use of carboys with safety funnels, (labeled separated into aqueous, acid, organic and halogenated organic) in hoods and asked that we keep waste in closed containers in the cabinets beneath the hoods. I can see problems with this but do not know where to go for authoritative background.
