Laboratory Chemical Moves

If your lab is moving across campus you probably have chemicals to move, and REM can help. We will assist you by providing segregation and packing recommendations, as well as transporting the chemicals. Call (765) 494-0121 for details or to arrange for your chemicals to be moved. It’s important to notify REM as early as possible regarding your lab move; we would like at least two weeks’ notice of your intent to have chemicals moved. It’s also important to note that we will only move chemicals. We will not move furniture, equipment, and etc. The following guidelines should be used to prepare your chemicals to be moved:

  • Separate your chemicals into two groups: waste/expired chemicals, and useable chemicals. Since REM will not transport wastes to the new lab, submit those materials for disposal on a hazardous materials pickup request form; this is also the perfect time to go through your inventory and get rid of expired chemicals.
  • Segregate your chemicals according to hazard class, for example, flammables, corrosives, oxidizers, and reactives. If you are not sure what the hazards are, you should consult the safety data sheets or contact REM for assistance.
  • Package your chemicals using sturdy cardboard boxes, buckets or bins. Pack all the chemicals with like hazards together such that they won’t fall over or bump into each other and break.
 To arrange for your chemicals to be moved by REM, call (765) 494-0121.
