Hazardous Waste Disposal

The Queen's policy statement on Environmental Management outlines the University's commitment to the protection of the environment through the implementation of an effective Environmental Management Program. An important aspect of this program is the proper handling, storage, and disposal of all hazardous chemicals generated on campus.

Transportation of Dangerous Goods Waste Classification Profile

Please contact Tom Martinek If you are disposing of a mixture of chemicals in a 20 litre container or greater to obtain a copy of the Chemical Classification Profile form. You will need to complete the form and submit it to Environmental Health and Safety.  Please  note that you will need to request a new form if the composition of the mixture changes in subsequent shipments. The form is not required for solvent waste in red 20 litre containers.

Waste Pickup Schedule

UPDATE: Due to reduced research on campus, all pickups (chemical, solvent, biohazard, radioactive and empty containers) will take place Wednesday of each week. Please ensure waste requests are submitted no later than Tuesday 9 AM the week of the pickup.
