Frequent Questions

If a facility has very small containers (e.g., vials or tubes) of hazardous waste that are too small to label with the words "hazardous waste" or "other words that identify the contents of the container," how should the containers be labeled?

Generally, we would expect the small containers to be placed in properly labeled larger containers, which would have the added benefit of secondary containment should the small containers break. However, other approaches that would achieve the same result also would be acceptable.
