When unused or spent chemicals need to be disposed of, our team of lab pack technicians have the capabilities to manage this entire process for you. These chemicals are potentially dangerous and pose a risk if they leak or are mixed together. There are strict municipal, provincial, and federal regulations for storage, packing, transportation, and disposal of these types of chemicals. Lab chemicals must be managed in a way that protects the people working with them, minimizes regulatory risk, and maximizes sustainability. Stericycle manages these wastes by utilizing our extensive regulatory knowledge, professional expertise, and close attention to detail.
Stericycle’s professional lab pack services characterize the waste, package and manage leaking containers, prepare the necessary shipping documentation, and ensure people are protected and compliance is maintained.
