Hazardous Waste Management Program


The Hazardous Waste Management Program was designed to ensure that the collection, storage, and disposal of all hazardous chemical waste generated at Augusta University is accomplished in compliance with all federal, state, and local rules and regulations, and to provide the details of in-process hazardous waste treatment procedures as approved by the Chemical Safety Officer.

  • It is the responsibility of the person who generated the waste to manage all wastes in accordance with all federal, state, and local rules and regulations. This includes collection, segregation, storage and disposal of all hazardous wastes.
  • Hazardous waste determinations are provided by CSO staff members who are trained in all EPA and DOT regulations governing hazardous chemical wastes. This information is entered in the Chemical Inventory Database for all chemicals in the user’s inventory.
  • Hazardous waste information is then made available through the Chemical Inventory Database in the form of a Chemical Fact Sheet.

Chemical users may also contact the CSO to request a site visit for hazardous waste determinations, collection, and disposal information.
