Most hazardous waste comes from laboratories, hospitals, and facilities. We’re using four strategies to minimize the amount we dispose of:
Reducing: e.g. switching from traditional to digital imaging
Reusing: e.g. filtering xylene, ethanol and formaldehyde in pathology labs
Recycling: e.g. sending unwanted latex paint for recycling into new paint
Treating: e.g. mixing acids/bases to neutralize them
Our next target is to have 60% of waste reused, recycled or treated. Learn more at the Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) site.
