Waste

The Environmental Compliance Program operates the chemical, radioactive and universal waste (i.e. lamps and batteries) disposal program for Emory University, Emory College, Oxford College, Emory University Hospital and the Emory Clinic (Clifton campus). Regulated waste is routinely generated as a result of clinical, research, teaching and maintenance operations and is highly regulated by several government agencies. Our office provides guidance on the proper management and disposal of these regulated wastes as well as receives unused chemicals as part of a surplus chemical redistribution program.
