Waste in the lab

All employers at Uppsala University are responsible for correct handling of waste. Plastics, cardboard, styrofoam, glass etc are sorted according to instructions in the lab and handed in to one of the recycling rooms.

Hazardous waste (contagious-, biological- and sharps waste) are disposed according to specific regulations. Hazardous-waste boxes must be correctly assembled, sealed and correctly labeled with label that is attached on the short side of the box. Instructions for this can be found where the boxes are collected, at Campus Management.
