Disposal Of Liquid Non-Hazardous Chemicals

Liquid non-hazardous (chemical) wastes with a pH between 6 and 10 may be flushed to the sanitary sewer (down the sink). An aqueous (water-based) solution of any of the compounds in the list below is considered a liquid non-hazardous chemical waste and can be poured down the sanitary sewer  with copious amounts of water (10-20 times the amount of the original solution). If you have more than five gallons of liquid non-hazardous chemical waste to dispose of, contact the Division of Research Safety (DRS) (cws@illinois.edu or call 217-333-2755) to determine whether the waste should be collected through the DRS chemical waste disposal program.

Solid non-hazardous chemical wastes must be disposed of through the DRS chemical waste disposal program. All solid chemical wastes, whether hazardous or non-hazardous, are regulated in Illinois as special waste if placed in the regular trash, so it is illegal to dispose any solid chemical waste in the regular trash on campus. The DRS can, at no cost to the University of Illinois, put in place certifications for legal disposal of these solid chemical wastes. See Illinois Special Waste for additional information.

Other liquid chemicals might be eligible for sink disposal if they meet all of the following conditions:

If a chemical waste meets all the criteria listed above but is not listed below, contact DRS (cws@illinois.edu or 217-333-2755) to determine if the waste can be poured down the drain.
