Safety & Risk Services coordinates the disposal of hazardous waste materials at the UBC Vancouver campus through the Environmental Services Facility (ESF) located on South Campus. The facility safely manages hazardous waste in accordance with relevant regulations. At ESF, laboratory wastes and hazardous materials generated by the University through research, academic and operational activities are consolidated, recycled, re-used, neutralized and/or disposed.
Our combined efforts have generated a significant Hazardous Waste Reduction at UBC since 2006.
