Hazardous and Universal Waste Management

George Mason University manages hazardous and universal waste across all campuses. Most universal waste on campus is sent out for recycling. This commitment to recycling provides a lower cost management option, and lessens the environmental footprint of such waste. When possible, process changes that reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous waste are initiated. This benefits both Mason and the local community by reducing the prevalence of hazardous waste on campus.

There are plans in place to account for where hazardous waste is generated, how it is removed, and how it is stored. EHS strives to be a partner at every step of this process to ensure compliance with applicable state and federal regulations.
