Chemical Safety Day Program
Since 1981, the Chemical Safety Day Program (CSDP) has been offered by the University of Minnesota to assist educational institutions and nonprofit organizations throughout the state of Minnesota in disposing of unwanted chemicals and hazardous waste. The CSDP is a cost-effective waste management program working under the Minnesota state contract for hazardous waste disposal. Therefore, each waste disposal facility has been thoroughly audited and reviewed by the state, reducing your overall environmental liability. University of Minnesota Environmental Health and Safety staff travel throughout the state multiple times a year, allowing for convenient waste pickup scheduling for CSDP customers (see current CSDP schedule below).
If you have questions, contact Robbie Eiker at firstname.lastname@example.org or (612) 490-3689.
