Lab Clean-out Form

A lab clean-out must be requested when a large number of chemicals (greater than 20) need to be removed from a lab. This is usually needed when labs are closing down their operations, moving to another location, or have an excess amount of chemicals not being used. This procedure should not be used for routine hazardous waste pick-ups. For more information about lab clean-outs, refer to the Laboratory, Art Studio, and Shop Cleanout, Closeout, and Relocation Procedures.

If you have between 20 and 100 chemical containers to be picked up for disposal, download the Lab Clean-out Form to request disposal. If you have less than 20 containers, use the normal waste disposal request system in HITS. If you have more than 100 chemicals to dispose, contact a Hazardous Waste Specialist to determine if the form needs to be completed.

Once you have completed the form, upload it here.  An EH&S Specialist will contact you for scheduling within 3 days business days. Please allow 2-3 weeks for EH&S to effectively prepare for and complete your laboratory clean-out.
