IUPUI Waste Management

Waste Management at IUPUI

IUPUI is dedicated to the protection of the environment and to the preservation of the natural resources of our community. Waste generated at IUPUI includes municipal trash, recycling, food waste, and landscaping waste, as well as chemical, biological, and radioactive waste generated by research, academic, and administrative operations. The disposal of chemical, biological, and radioactive waste is governed by Federal, State, and local regulations as well as IU policies and procedures. IUEHS oversees the chemical, biological, and radioactive waste management programs for IUPUI, but our continued success depends on the efforts of faculty, staff, and students to properly identify problematic wastes and follow the appropriate procedures for their disposal. Proper handling and disposal of this waste is critical to worker safety, the health of the community, and the protection of our environment.
