- Submit as much info as you have about the chemicals using the Online Waste Inventory Form
- In a few days, UBC HSE will contact you with instructions on how to separate and package the chemicals, and to arrange for pickup from your lab.
- That's it - fees for chemical waste removal for reasonable amounts of waste disposal are covered by the university-wide UBC HSE (not the PI's or the department).
