That form is directly from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality's Waste Characterization Reference Book online. See Chapter 2 in the link below.,9429,7-135-3312-398541--,00.html

Thank you,

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Haz Waste Characterization Records

** External Email **

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
