What is Hazardous Waste?

Hazardous waste is waste that poses substantial or potential threats to public health and environment. Hazardous wastes are materials that are known or tested to exhibit ignitability, reactivity and toxicity. Wastes of this kind (including chemical, clinical and radioactive) are unavoidably generated via our teaching, research and operational activities both on-campus and off-campus. The CDFO manages the disposal of hazardous wastes according to established management procedures and statutory requirements. Examples: Batteries, Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) and fluorescent light bulbs contain hazardous material such as mercury, cadmium and lead should be disposed in specific recycling bins.
