Hazardous Materials Management

Annually, the Purdue West Lafayette Campus generates an average of 200,000 pounds of chemical waste (equates to approximately 25,000 individual containers) and 250,000 pounds of treated biological waste. The primary responsibility of Environmental Health and Safety's Hazardous Materials Management Section is to pick up, transport, process, and dispose of all this waste in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Careful consideration is given to the disposal of every single container that is picked up and processed by our staff, with the highest priority given to environmental stewardship.
