Introduction

 

At the University of South Florida, a laboratory cleanout is defined as the removal of an excess amount of unwanted, unused, abandoned, or expired chemicals from a laboratory.  This procedure will help minimize risk of exposure to lab personnel & Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) personnel when removing chemicals due to potential spills or reactions and minimize disposal costs due to disposal in bulk quantities.

 

A lab cleanout must be requested when a large number of chemicals (greater than 20) need to be removed from a lab.  This is usually needed when labs are closing down their operations, moving to another location, or have an excess amount of chemicals not being used.  This procedure should not be used for routine hazardous waste pick-ups.
