Waste Management

As a College, Reed is a conditionally exempt small quantity generator (CESQG), which is also known as a very small quantity generator (VSQG) of hazardous chemical waste.  Please make sure to label your waste with your contact information, contents, and date.  Place the labeled waste in Chemistry 211 for further processing.  Waste labels can be obtained in Chemistry 211, from either the Biology or Chemistry Stockroom, or below.  Contact ehs@reed.edu if you have further questions regarding waste disposal.  EHS takes all hazardous waste, which includes: chemical, biological, radioactive materials, lamps and ballasts, and batteries.  Electronic waste should be disposed of via the Computer Hardware Shop.
