University units with sharps waste and human pathological waste should take note of recent changes to the University’s biohazardous waste streams.
A hazardous material spill is an uncontrolled release of a substance that is potentially hazardous to humans, animals and/or the environment. University personnel and students working with hazardous materials should be prepared to respond in case a spill occurs.
We partner with the UW community to provide a safe campus and protect our environment.
