Results of Hazardous Waste Survey Now Available

August 9, 2005

Several months ago, NACUBO surveyed members about the hazardous waste management function at their institutions as part of our ongoing efforts to inform the Environmental Protection Agency about the difficulties of applying some waste management rules to academic labs. To gauge practices currently in place and learn about challenges faced on campus, a Web-based survey was developed by NACUBO and the several experts in environmental health and safety management and e-mailed to primary representatives in February 2005. Completed surveys were submitted by 395 institutions and the data has been very useful in our ongoing regulatory reform work with the EPA.  NACUBO extends its thanks to participating institutions for their significant contribution.  Full descriptive results of the survey are now available.
