- About Us
The mission of the Waste Management Group is to ensure the proper and safe management (generation, treatment, storage and disposal) of hazardous wastes at Stony Brook University, while applying the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s hierarchy of waste minimization: reduce, reuse, and recycle. In addition, the group ensures compliance with federal, state and local regulations on proper handling of hazardous wastes.
Chemical Waste Disposal Manifests
In an effort to reduce paper wastes, EH&S is providing this fillable PDF of the Chemical Waste Disposal Manifest for completing and printing Chemical Waste Disposal Manifests. These can be completed and saved electronically, reducing the burden on labs for maintaining paper copies. Just complete this form and print 1 copy to bring with your waste to the waste collection.
The following is a list of all the services provided by the Waste Management group:
For more information on proper Hazardous Chemical Waste Management, download the handout developed by the Hazardous Waste Management Group at SUNY Stony Brook designed to assist hazardous waste generators on campus comply with applicable regulatory requirements.
All regulated medical and chemical wastes generated in University laboratories and other facilities must be disposed of in accordance to the guidelines and regulations mandated by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
For definitions of these hazardous wastes, please see the Hazardous Waste Management and Spill Response Handout.
