Regulated Wastes

Florida Institute of Technology produces various types of regulated wastes through research activities and/or institute maintenance spanning federal, state, and local regulations. Florida Techs’ Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) office manages all regulated wastes by supplying approved containers, support equipment, technical support, and transportation to our authorized temporary storage sites. All regulated wastes are properly disposed through permitted treatment, storage and disposal facilities.

Use the quick links to navigate to the appropriate waste section to learn more about a specific type of waste, or, schedule a waste pick-up. Refer to the hazardous waste determination flow charts found in the documents section if you need help classifying a waste.

If you will be generating a new waste, and need assistance in setting up a waste accumulation area and new waste container, please complete the hazardous waste determination form and submit it to EHS.

Note: Waste will not be accepted at our main office. Please use the links for pick-up to the left or email hazwaste@fit.edu. When emailing please include what the substance is; where it is located; and any special issues with the substance. Personnel from EHS will need this information to deal with every request. Not providing this information will delay assistance. Please plan accordingly in managing your waste area. Other departments also require assistance.

Contact hazwaste@fit.edu for any non-emergency comments, questions, or concerns.
