WASTE DISPOSAL
Infectious: Any potentially contaminated sharps; human and animal blood samples, blood products, other body fluids, tissues, and organs are all considered biological and infectious materials. These materials should be isolated from the general wastes and discarded directly into labeled containers which identify them as such.

Chemical: Waste chemicals which have the properties of toxicity, flammability, reactivity or corrosivity are considered hazardous wastes. These chemicals must be isolated from solid (normal trash) waste and properly containerized and labeled for disposition.

Departments or employees who generate chemical or infectious waste can contact Environmental Health & Safety for disposal information.
