UCF Environmental Health & Safety

The University of Central Florida handles and manages hazardous waste in accordance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the State of Florida regulations. A hazardous waste determination must be made of any waste material generated. If the waste is hazardous then it must be recycled, treated, stored or disposed of at a hazardous waste facility authorized by the DEP, EPA or another State. Hazardous waste cannot be disposed of down the sink, in the trash, or in or on the ground. UCF properly disposes of its hazardous waste through a permitted treatment, storage and disposal facility. UCF recycles its used oil, bulbs, mercury containing devices and rechargeable batteries. UCF EHS provides HAZWOPER training as well as hazardous waste handling and disposal training to staff, faculty, students and employees.
