Universal Waste

The Universal Waste Rule in Missouri defines a number of hazardous materials that qualify for alternate management strategies. At MU only selected aspects of the rule are used, specifically those pertaining to non-alkaline batteries and mercury-containing lamps (e.g., fluorescent lamps).

EHS has developed the following guidance documents for MU faculty, staff, and students to assist them in proper management of fluorescent lamps and batteries:
