Opportunities for Waste Reduction and Diversion in Laboratories

April 20, 2:00-3:00pm ET

Laboratories present unique challenges when it comes to waste reduction and diversion but the volume and types of waste they generate present tremendous opportunities to reduce environmental and public health impacts from waste disposal.

Participants heard an engaging and novel discussion, sponsored by My Green Lab, about safe and successful programs to divert waste material from labs.
