Waste Management

Reducing the amount of waste generated and disposing of it properly is the responsibility of everyone at PSU! Whether this is accomplished by waste reduction techniques, recycling, re-using, or simply contacting EHS for collection, we must do our part for the health of our environment and to minimize costs.

EHS manages four main categories of waste at PSU:  

Whenever possible, EHS recycles these wastes, but always handles them in accordance with state and federal disposal and storage regulations.  Specifics on each of these types are given on each of their own pages.
