Disposal and Decontamination

Hazardous waste can pose a substantial threat to human health and the environment when managed improperly. As a public research institution with deep-seated roots in natural resources, oceanography, and environmental science, we have an obligation to protect both our community and environment through strict waste disposal policies and guidelines.
