    How do I donate chemical(s) to ReChem?

    Chemical donations are greatly appreciated. Be sure that your chemical(s) fits the criteria for acceptance into the redistribution program. If your chemical meets the criteria, submit a waste pick-up request with "chemicals-Unused" selected. Place your donation in your Satellite Accumulation Area (SAA), and Environmental Health & Safety will pick up your donation within 14 business days.

    What are the criteria for ReChem?

  • Only UCF personnel can offer or accept chemicals.
  • Recipient must have the knowledge, training, and facilities to safely use the chemicals.
  • Chemicals should be in their original containers, be of uniform color, and in good condition. (Secondary containers will only be accepted if chemical name, date, and purity are clearly labeled.)
  • All chemicals must be inspected by Environmental Health & Safety personnel for deterioration before being offered for redistribution.
  • To ensure the safety of personnel and environmental regulatory compliance, restricted chemicals are prohibited from redistribution.
  • Faculty and staff are responsible for the proper use and disposal of chemicals as indicated by UCF's Department of Environmental Health & Safety in accordance with chemical and Lab Safety guidelines and requirements.
