2.3 Waste Generator Responsibilities

Individual investigators, supervisors, workers, students, laboratory staff, visitors, etc. are considered the actual originators (generators) of these regulated materials. Therefore, it is the responsibility of each generator to identify any and all hazardous wastes that he or she might be producing, and to assure the waste is handled in a manner consistent with the EHS requirements listed in this document.

Where EHS requirements identify solvents that must be collected separately for distillation and reuse, the waste generator must make every effort to segregate those solvents from their regular hazardous waste collection containers.
