This information was compiled to help students, staff and faculty in the Department of Chemistry effectively manage waste and to align the department with UC Davis' long-term commitment to environmental, economic, and social sustainability. The key to sustainability is ultimately more than putting things in the "right" places, though: it is about conserving resources and reducing consumption.
If you have questions or comments about sustainability, please contact the Office of Sustainability. Students and faculty may also have their chemistry laboratory Green Lab certified.
