Chemical Waste Disposal Services FAQs

Is chemical waste always considered hazardous?

While chemical waste often contains harmful substances, not all harmful chemicals are automatically classified as hazardous. To be considered hazardous, waste must demonstrate specific traits such as ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity, as defined by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Chemical waste disposal treatment can be conducted through four main processes: biological, chemical, physical, or thermal. Chemical treatment methods include ion exchange, precipitation, oxidation and reduction, and neutralization. Among these, incineration is the most commonly utilized form of thermal treatment.

Lab packing refers to the process of safely packing chemicals into a Department of Transportation (DOT) approved container for transport to a certified waste disposal facility. Due to the potentially hazardous nature of these substances and the increased risk when mixed with other chemicals, only experts in lab packing must handle these procedures.

Chemicals are eligible for lab pack disposal if they’re within six months of their labeled expiration date, or have been stored for over five years regardless of the expiration date. If storage conditions have been compromised, such as exposure to improper temperatures or poor sealing, or if the chemical is unused, unneeded, or poses a significant hazard risk, it also qualifies for disposal.

Chemical waste treatment includes one of four methods: biological, chemical, physical, or thermal. Within the chemical process, it includes ion exchange, precipitation, oxidation and reduction, and neutralization. Notably, incineration is the main form of thermal treatment.
