Hazardous Waste Management

Risk Management Services coordinates the disposal of hazardous waste materials at the UBC Vancouver campus through the Environmental Services Facility (ESF) located on South Campus. The facility safely manages hazardous waste in accordance with relevant regulations. At the Environmental Services Facility (ESF), laboratory wastes and hazardous materials generated by the University through research, academic and operational activities are consolidated, recycled, re-used, neutralized and/or disposed.

Our combined efforts have generated Hazardous-Waste-Reduction-Efforts-2017 at UBC since 2006.
