Hazardous Waste Management Guidance Refresher Spring 2004:  Hazardous Waste Management Guidance Refresher Spring 2004 Presented By: Syracuse University’s Environmental Health Office What is a Hazardous Waste?:  What is a Hazardous Waste? A Hazardous Waste Determination must be made on all materials prior to disposal. Tools and references which can help you make this determination: Generator knowledge Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) Hazardous Waste Management Manual EHO Hazardous Waste Staff The generator must determine if the waste is a Listed Waste or has any characteristics of a Hazardous Waste (Ignitable, Corrosive, Reactive and/or Toxic). .:  Spent halogenated solvents including: 1,1,1-trichloroethane Chlorobenzene Tetrachloroethylene 1,1,2-trichloroethane Methylene chloride Trichloroethylene Spent non-halogenated solvents including: 2-ethoxyethanol Cyclohexanone Methanol 2-nitropropane Ethyl acetate Methyl ethyl ketone Acetone Ethyl benzene Methyl isobutyl ketone Benzene Ethyl ether Pyridine Carbon disulfide Isobutanol Toluene Cresols N-butyl alcohol Xylene Cresylic acid Nitrobenzene Discarded unused formulations containing tri-, tetra-, or pentachlorophenol or discarded unused formulations containing compounds derived from these chlorophenols. ALL F-listed liquids AND waste debris contaminated with F-listed liquids must be collected and managed as a Hazardous Waste. F-LISTED WASTES If the chemicals you are using appear on this list, they are REGULATED HAZARDOUS WASTE (regardless of quantity or the actual hazard they may present) The full list of F-listed wastes can be found in your Hazardous Waste Management Manual. . Ignitable Waste Characteristics:  Ignitable Waste Characteristics Flashpoint less than 140° F or 60° C Oxidizing materials Solids which are combustible through reaction or will ignite and burn vigorously & persistently Ignitable compressed gases Examples: Oil based paint, aerosol cans, cylinders, paint thinner, solvent or oil soaked rags, nitrates, acetone, toluene, epoxy, turpentine, etc. Corrosive Waste Characteristics:  Corrosive Waste Characteristics pH less than 2 or greater than 12.5 Examples: Acids – (pH less than 7) Muriatic acid, hydrochloric acid, acetic acid, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, solder flux, etc. Bases – (pH greater than 7) Sodium hydroxide, ammonia, ammonium hydroxide, bicarbonates, sodium hypochlorite (bleach) Toxic Waste Characteristics:  Toxic Waste Characteristics Heavy Metals (As, Ba, Cd, Cr, Pb, Hg, Se, Ag) Examples: Solder, Mercury Thermometers, Lead Paints Solvents Examples: Paint Thinner, Acetone, Methanol, Toluene, Xylenes Pesticides and Herbicides Examples: Endrin, Lindane, Methoxychlor, Chlordane Proper Storage & Disposal:  Proper Storage & Disposal Material must be stored in a container compatible with the contents Incompatible waste must be separated by an impermeable barrier The containers must be labeled with: The words “Hazardous Waste” A second form of identification (chemical constituents) Must be stored in a manner to prevent spilling Containers must be stored tightly closed unless adding or removing waste Allowed to store up to 55 gallons of material at one time in a Satellite Accumulation Area Once this limit is reached the material must be moved to a 90 or 180 day storage area within 3 days EHO will coordinate all disposal of hazardous waste Waste Minimization:  Waste Minimization Waste minimization is required by the Environmental Protection Agency Reuse and Recycle Switch to less hazardous materials Reduction Use environmentally friendly degreasers, latex paint, review processes, etc. Universal Waste:  Universal Waste Universal Waste Different, less stringent standards than those for Hazardous Waste Examples: Bulbs, Batteries, Mercury Thermostats Universal Waste Batteries:  Universal Waste Batteries Dry Cell, Alkaline, Lithium, Nickel-Cadmium, Lead Acid Use battery containers located throughout campus for small batteries EHO currently keeps a list of all battery collection areas and checks locations on a regular schedule Please notify EHO of any full battery containers Place large batteries in your SAA, label as Universal Waste battery and date Call EHO for removal Universal Waste Fluorescent Bulbs:  Universal Waste Fluorescent Bulbs All fluorescent bulbs, Lithium Hydride, Halogen, other metal halides/hydrides, Sodium, etc. Housing is responsible for their own areas Storage Area underneath Haven Hall Use existing accumulation areas. Store in light boxes or tubes EHO may provide tubes or boxes if necessary Universal Waste Management:  Universal Waste Management Item must be placed in a labeled container Container must be compatible with waste Container must be labeled as “Universal Waste” and the name of the waste Container must be labeled with the beginning date of accumulation Must be stored in a limited access area Slide13:  Universal waste rules indicate that: If there is a release of universal waste, it must be immediately contained. If a universal waste is released, the resultant spill clean up material must be assessed and a hazardous waste determination must be made. If it is a hazardous waste it must be placed in an appropriate container and labeled and stored as a hazardous waste If the material is not a hazardous waste, it may be repackaged in an appropriate container and labeled as a Universal Waste Examples of materials which may be a hazardous waste include: Fluorescent Lamps, Lead Acid Batteries, Mercury thermostats, Sodium lamps, Mercury Vapor lamps, Chemical Slide14:  Refer to Used Oil Procedures Collect all used oil Label with Used Oil Label List any suspected contaminants Do not mix hazardous waste with Used Oil Follow same storage procedures as for hazardous waste Collect oil contaminated debris in red containers, EHO will dispose of Slide15:  NYSDEC allows an exemption from the Solid and Hazardous Waste rules for regulated scrap metal which is being recycled. Examples: Brass, Silver, Lead, Solder, Painted Metal, Batteries, Lab Equipment, Electronic Equipment, CPU’s, Computer Monitors & Keyboards The new Scrap Metal Policy can be found at Along with a list of facilities which S.U. has approved for scrap metal recycling & Scrap Metal Recycling Facility Approval forms.
