Hello Everyone,

I work in academia and most of teh haz waste taht I generate are
mixtures that come from our courses. Because they all follow the same
set procedure and are using known chemicals, I know the contents and
teh hazards prior to the wste benign generated and therefore it is
very unusual for me to have to do any actual tests to characterize the
waste prior to shipping it out.

I have been determine the hazards of our waste based on the materials
we supply them for the experiment and even use the 49 CFR to include
the hazard class for most of the chemicals in these mixtures of the
bottle label.

Our new EHS person wants us to start logging each waste bottle monthly
on a form similar to the one here

Does anyone else do this or have any guidance for streamlining this process?

Thank you,
Monique Wilhelm
