Review the following training on Hazardous Waste Storage (Satellite Accumulation Areas) for the details on correctly accumulating hazardous waste.

Investigators should develop waste minimization practices within their laboratories. The American Chemical Society has published a booklet - "Less is Better" which serves as a starting point for waste minimization practices. It is suggested that this booklet be reviewed as experiments or procedures are designed or conducted.
