Jefferson Lab Annual Property Inventory Is Underway
To complete the inventory, each item must be physically seen by a member of the property office. Note that the property custodian is responsible for knowing the location of and searching for, if needed, their assigned property, not the property staff. Property staff will go to the location identified for each item during the property validation to inventory the property. The assigned custodian will be notified of any item not located at its specified location, and the item will be reported as "missing" until the item is physically located by the custodian and verified by property staff. If you have questions, contact Christian Whalen at x5899.

Hazardous Waste Disposal Event
Placing non-approved or non-listed chemicals in a waste container is prohibited at Jefferson Lab, as well. Improper disposal can potentially create a hazardous chemical reaction within the waste container. Additionally, improper waste disposal can lead to regulatory fines and negative ratings for Jefferson Lab. It is important for each person who disposes of hazardous chemicals to know where they can be disposed and not to add anything else to that container.
If you are unsure of where and what to dispose of, contact the Hazardous Waste Coordinator, Jennifer Williams at x7882, or Brett Lewis at x6254 for help. Don't just assume that all hazardous waste can go into any hazardous waste container.
