Chemical Clean Sweep

June 10–14, 2013

The Department of Health and Safety is pleased to announce the third annual Chemical Clean Sweep. We will be providing FREE chemical waste disposal services to MUN's St. John's Campus during the week of June 10th – 14th, 2013.

This year, in an effort to reduce long lines up and extended wait times, Newalta will be coordinating waste pick-ups directly from labs. Scheduling of pick-ups for Clean Sweep will be based on the inventories received by June 4 using the Clean Sweep Disposal form. Once we have received your Clean Sweep Disposal form, your pick-up date and time as well as additional information for chemical preparation will be provided by Newalta.

During this event sharps, batteries and biological waste will not be accepted for disposal.

Any questions, please contact: Kendra Picco @ 864-4393 or

If you are interested in availing of this Free service, please complete a Chemical Clean Sweep Disposal form and email completed forms in electronic format to with “Chemical Clean Sweep” in the subject line or Fax to: 864-3116 by June 4, 2013.
