NSLS Waste Disposal Directions

  • Check that your training status as a generator of hazardous waste is up-to-date. To ensure that you are within the one-year qualification period for course HP-RCRIGEN3, consult the BNL training database. If you haven't taken the training please take it now (Hazardous Waste Generator HP-RCRIGEN3), the web based course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
  • Once you have generated waste it must be properly labeled, and placed in a Satellite Accumulation Area or brought directly to the NSLS 90-Day Accumulation Area. All waste stored in a Satellite Accumulation Area must be moved to the NSLS 90-Day Accumulation Area at the end of your experiment.
  • Waste labels and forms are located inside the NSLS 90-Day Accumulation Area. Please fill in all of the sections on the waste label and control form (directions). During normal work hours (8:30am-5:00pm), contact Tom McDonald (x4483) before placing any waste in the 90-Day Area. During off hours, you can place the waste in the NSLS 90-Day Area and slide the completed forms under Tom McDonald's office door (1-177). Please make every effort to meet with Tom McDonald (x4483) before leaving the NSLS so that he can ensure that the waste forms and labels are properly completed.
  • The BNL Hazardous Waste Management Subject Area and the NSLS PRM contains detailed directions for the proper management of hazardous waste.
  • If you have any questions please contact a member of the Safety Staff or an Operations Coordinator (digital pager 5824).
