Does your Lab Pack Service send an expert to your site?
TEC sends an expert...a CHEMIST...to process each and every lab pack, because there are usually unexpected wastes to profile. TEC can efficiently inventory, collect, identify, segregate, consolidate, catalog, package, label, transport and dispose of all your miscellaneous chemical wastes. TEC will handle your small containers of hazardous wastes -- such as jars, bottles and jugs up to 5 gallons in size -- and pack them in 55 gallon drums for storage, transportation and disposal. This service can be provided as a one-time cleanout, on an "as needed" basis, or on a set schedule during the year.
WHAT IS A LAB PACK?
ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL RULES FOR LAB PACKS?
Yes, If you combine your waste in containers, you must comply with the applicable requirements for waste consolidation. Lab packs have special requirements with regard to packaging prior to transportation and disposal. For packaging prior to disposal, you must use DOT approved non-leaking "inside containers" that are compatible with the waste being packaged. These inside containers must be over-packed ie lab packed in compatible "outer-containers" that is also compatible. The inside containers must be surrounded by enough compatible sorbent material to safely absorb all the contents in the container should a container rupture. A drum is considered lab-packed or full when it is packed with inside containers and sufficient sorbent material, sealed and completely categorized by an accurate inventory of the containers contents. In addition, incompatible hazardous waste can not be placed in the same outside container. As an example: reactive hazardous waste, such as cyanide or sulfide-bearing wastes, must not be packaged with acidic wastes.
