Special / Problem Waste

Problem waste is discarded in the plastic yellow boxes found in each lab. When filled (do not overfill), the box is closed with a self-sealing lid and labelled using the orange “FORBRENNING” labels. Check mark the relevant type of waste, and fill in the date, department, lab telephone number, and name (see label below). The sealed labelled box is then placed in the waste room on the HIB 1st floor (see the admin front desk for access key). Empty yellow boxes, lids, and labels are picked up from the same room. Boxes and their content will be destroyed by incineration by BIR at Rådalen.

Waste Categories

Note: Put only one category of waste in each yellow box, the exception being Ethidium Bromide waste (see last category)
