When it is your business to handle and work with hazardous materials every day in a laboratory, you undoubtedly know the danger that these substances could pose if they were improperly handled. Unfortunately, most local sanitation and waste management services are poorly equipped for helping laboratories dispose of these substances when relocating, downsizing, closing, or when changes need to be made to inventory.
If this is a scenario your lab is facing, consider the benefits of calling in a professional hazardous waste management team to help you handle the packing and disposal of these materials safely and efficiently.
Why Let Someone Else Pack Your Lab?
Imagine how convenient it would be if you could rely on a company with experience in the field of hazardous and non-hazardous waste management services to pack up your lab the right way – so you wouldn’t have to worry about it. If you partner with the right local waste management service provider, this isn’t something you need to imagine, it’s an affordable reality. You can trust that an expert team will handle the removal and packing process, as well as the safe disposal of all materials.
What is a Lab Pack?
What exactly does a lab pack entail? Depending on your lab’s contents, some things to expect during the process include:
- Inventory of all hazardous and non-hazardous materials to be moved, removed, or discarded.
- Completion of paperwork to ensure no details are overlooked and all materials are categorized appropriately.
- A price quote issuance before actual work begins, to ensure the client agrees with the terms.
- Mobilization of the team tasks with handling materials. Once this team is in place and on-site, packing begins by removing all chemically compatible items per DOT regulations for safety.
- Once materials are removed, they are contained, transported, and disposed of or stored via strict adherence to DOT safety regulations and client needs. Endpoint disposal should always involve transparency of information to the client regarding how their materials are being disposed of and where.
If you are interested in having the hazardous and non hazardous materials in your laboratory safely move, removed, stored, or disposed of, it’s a good idea to contact your local waste management service as soon as possible to begin planning a lab pack.
