How do I properly package and transport waste to the HPC?

Use original containers and labels whenever possible to decrease the risks of spills and exposure. If the container is compromised in any way, use a secondary container to contain the spill. In addition, bring a copy of any SDS’s that pertain to your particular waste. This will cut down the amount of time needed to investigate your hazardous materials.

Be aware of leaking chemicals, as they can react while in transport and pose a serious risk to you, your occupants, and the general public. Keep your vehicle well ventilated and drive with care.
