  3. When starting a new chemical waste container you must completely fill out and affix a waste label to it.
  4. If you fill a waste container up to its full capacity or notice that it's over 9 months old, please notify your respective lab safety officer so he/she may request a pick up.
  5. Hazardous waste containers must be kept fully closed with a secure lid, except when adding or removing waste.
