State and federal rules about labeling hazardous waste containers have changed. The Division of Research Safety has developed container tags that satisfy the new rules.
Instructions for using these waste tags are available at https://www.drs.illinois.edu/Waste/WasteTagRequirement.
The tags are not required for excess, unused chemicals, because the manufacturer’s labels already meet the requirements.
There are three ways to obtain the waste tags:
(1) Pick up pre-printed tags in campus storerooms.
(2) Download a fillable pdf version from the DRS web site: https://www.drs.illinois.edu/site-documents/WasteTagPrintable.pdf.
(3) Request delivery through campus mail by emailing email@example.com.
