Laboratory Cleanouts

laboratory with too much chemical wasteTypically, the department that is responsible for cleaning out the lab is also responsible for cleaning out the chemicals in the lab by following the procedures on our Chemical Waste Disposal page. However, in some cases DEHS can provide chemical laboratory cleanout services at a cost of $60/hour. This service only includes removing chemicals. It does not include the disposal of lab equipment or supplies. Additionally, DEHS cannot guarantee that the laboratory cleanout will be conducted in a timely fashion; cleanouts are typically handled in the order in which they are received, performed after hours, and only when UHS staff are available.

To learn more about laboratory cleanouts, please contact DEHS at (612) 626-1604 or hazwaste@umn.edu.
