Open Meeting to be Held Tuesday Regarding Laboratory Waste Project

(9-18-98) -- An open meeting will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 1-3 p.m. in the Lower Campus Dining Hall's Newton Room regarding a proposed new method for handling laboratory waste.

Boston College is a member of the Laboratory Consortium for Environmental Excellence, a group of New England colleges and universities that is exploring alternative systems for managing the relatively small amounts of hazardous wastes generated by laboratories. Despite their relatively negligible environmental effects, laboratories are bound by the same regulatory guidelines as large manufacturing and industrial facilities.

The consortium is working to establish guidelines that are better suited to laboratories and will improve environmental performance.

Anyone interested is welcome to attend the meeting.
