Chemical Waste Management Training for Schools

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description A Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) was negotiated in 2000 that provided training to secondary schools in proper waste management techniques. The goal was to minimize the amount of chemical waste generated at secondary schools in Connecticut. Topics covered included: substitution with less toxic or non-toxic materials; MSDS; lab safety; protective equipment; storage compatibility; refrigeration; and spill response issues. In addition, purchasing strategies and micro-scale chemistry were discussed as well as waste disposal practices. The audience for the training included traditional, vocational, and technical high schools along with junior colleges.
