Guidelines for Project-Generated Hazardous Waste

General Description

All demolition material removed from University of Colorado at Boulder (university) property by an outside contractor (contractor) during university projects must be evaluated to determine if it needs to be managed as a Hazardous Waste (HW). This evaluation must be completed before demolition begins. The Environmental Health and Safety Department (EH&S) needs to be involved or informed of this evaluation, and must receive copies of any relevant sampling activity logs and analytical results.

Materials determined to be a HW must be stored, transported, and disposed of in accordance with all applicable federal and state regulations (i.e. RCRA, OSHA, DOT, and specifically the Colorado Hazardous Waste Regulations 6 CCR 1007-3). These HW materials must be sent to an EPA-permitted hazardous waste disposal facility for disposal.
