It has been my experience most waste disposal facilities will take the kits intact as lab packed material. Use the SDS to get the DOT shipping information and contact the waste disposal facility for their lab pack rules. In the past, depending on the number of kits, I would just pack them into a 5 gallon plastic pail that meets the DOT requirements for the material listed. List the number of kits in the container and a list of any hazardous material that are in the kits. If for example they contain Benzene and Acetone make sure you have a D001 and D018 waste codes listed, you would not use the F-listed code for acetone or Benzene since the material is not spent. The disposal facility is usually very helpful with these types of items.

ok regulation guru's, lol, 3 days on the job  and I am suddenly assaulted by a bunch of test kits and ELISA kits etc.  Each of course has a hand full of chemicals in them as well as pre-loaded well plates etc.


please tell me I don't have to open these and declare each one individually.  Somewhere down the regulatory waste road I thought I read something about test kits.
