Hazardous Waste Tracking (Chematix)

Policy Statement
There is no formal policy statement for this topic however procedures and other information are provided below.
Reason for policy
To meet state and federal requirements pursuant to the proper handling, tracking, and disposal of hazardous waste.
Hazardous waste must be tracked using the Chematix Hazardous Waste module.  Labs or other areas in need of disposing of hazardous chemical waste should contact the Environmental Safety Division to be granted system access.  Prerequisite training and location information are required.  Users must then login to Chematix using UGA credentials, provide specific information about the waste in need of disposal, then submit the pickup request through the system.  The UGA Hazardous Materials program will retrieve, temporarily store and dispose of the waste in accordance with state and federal regulations.
Additional information is available on the Environmental Safety Division website.
