UAMS Hazardous Waste Program

The primary goal in handling and disposal of hazardous waste is to do so in a manner which prevents harm to human health and the environment. Extensive federal, state, and local regulations govern hazardous waste management.

UAMS is covered by these regulations, which are beyond the scope of this guide but in general, they regulate the handling, transportation, storage, and disposal of waste.

The regulations also require extensive record keeping and a “cradle to grave” tracking system which tracks hazardous wastes from their point of generation through disposal. This allows all waste to be accounted for at any stage between generation and disposal.

OH&S will collect hazardous wastes from each generating location on the Campus upon receipt of a properly completed Chemical Pickup Request Form from the generators of this waste. The wastes are then transported by OH&S and stored in our flammable storage where they are recorded and readied for removal to and disposal in a permitted hazardous waste facility for incineration.
