To comply with applicable federal and state
regulations, every hazardous waste container must be tagged or labeled
properly using the Hazardous Waste Labels furnished by the Hazardous
Waste Division the instant that the material inside the container is
determined to be a waste. Each waste container must be indelibly labeled
with the following:
a. The exact chemical contents preceded by the word
"Waste" (e.g. Waste Ethanol, Waste Hydrochloric Acid, etc.) Generic
identifications such as "Waste Solvents", Waste Pesticides, etc. are
unacceptable. If wastes are in solution, the solvent must be identified
even if the solvent is water. Labels must not contain abbreviations,
chemical formulas or trade names.
b. The estimated chemical concentrations (% by weight)
of the wastes in the container. Concentrations must total 100%.
c. The name of the generator or contact person.
d. Room Number and Building the waste is being removed
e. A phone number for a contact person.
f. The date waste was initially placed into the
container (IMPORTANT!). When a waste is moved from a Satellite
Accumulation Area to a 90 Day Accumulation Area, the original date will
be deleted and the date the waste was moved to the 90 Day Accumulation
Area will be applied.
NOTE: EHS has preprinted labels available. To
request blank labels, call x6-6485. If you do not have the Hazardous
Waste labels furnished by the EHS, clearly label the container
with the above information and the words "HAZARDOUS WASTE"
