11.0 Waste Disposal Programs

11.1 Academic Waste Disposal Program

11.2 General Waste Disposal Program

Waste products are stored in the Hazardous Material Storage Area, located at the back of the Physical Plant building. Self contained wastes are stored as is (i.e. products in cans). Other products are stored in fifty-five gallon drums.

Waste is picked up by licensed outside agencies as needed, never exceeding the 1 year OSHA mandated limit.

Westmont produces three constant waste streams

  • Paint
  • Motor Oil
  • Ethylene Glycol

Other waste streams may arise temporarily and are dealt with on an individual basis.

The General Waste Disposal Program is headed by Tom Bauer, Director of Public Safety (805/565x6043, safe@westmont.edu
