Universal Wastes are EPA regulated wastes, but are not Hazardous Wastes if properly recycled. They include spent batteries, certain types of lamps, and mercury containing devices or equipment. All universal waste containers must be labeled clearly with the appropriate label when waste is first added. These materials cannot remain on campus for more than a year. If you have any questions, comments, or need a waste determination please contact Robert Clay, Hazardous Materials Compliance Officer at 681-5497 or Clayr2@lincolnu.edu.
