BML Hazardous Waste Disposal Request

If you are at BML and need to dispose of hazardous materials, please follow these instructions:


  1. Print and complete label, affix to your waste.
  2. Then weigh the labeled waste item and add the weight to the label. All weights are recorded in pounds. Always round UP to the nearest pound. 
  3. Complete the Hazardous Waste Materials Disposal Request Sheet. You must use a UC Davis account to access this google sheet. You will be required to provide a departmental recharge account for each entry. 
  4. Bring your weighed, labeled and disposal-ready hazardous waste materials to Purchasing.

If any of these 4 steps are incomplete, your hazardous waste material will NOT be accepted.

Questions about this process should be addressed to BML Purchasing.
