Hazardous materials lab packing services

The Problem

Do you manage a warehouse, laboratory, hospital, school, medical facility, factory, or operation that uses small containers (usually less than 10 gallons each) of chemicals including:

  • Solvents
  • Acids
  • Bases
  • Reagents
  • Paints
  • Thinners
  • Dyes
  • Inks
  • Cleaners
  • Strippers
  • Pool Chemicals
  • Dry cleaning compounds
  • Or other hazardous chemicals

Over time, you will find that bottles, jars, cans and various containers have accumulated that are out-of-date, contaminated, partially used, leaking, or simply no longer needed.

Dangerous Hazardous Chemicals

Some chemicals, like picric acid (commonly used in medical and public schools chemistry laboratories) become explosive as they age, and can explode just from the friction of opening the lid. Other chemicals, like solvents such as Acetone, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Xylene, Ether and Toluene are extremely flammable and create a potential fire hazard while in storage.

Additionally these chemicals may become hazardous wastes after you have used them. Chromic acid-cleaning solutions, used or unused, aerosol cans of paint, cleaners and degreasers may also be classified as hazardous wastes and must be disposed of properly.

Lab decommissioning is one of the most complicated waste disposal operations because it is regulated by several agencies including the Department of Transportation, EPA and Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
