Chemical Swap Program

Free Unused Chemicals

To prevent pollution and misallocation of valuable chemical stocks, EHS has implemented a program to facilitate the use of otherwise unused chemicals. The ChemSwap program allows participants to submit requests for unused chemicals to be picked up in the same manner as their other hazardous waste for the convenience of the PI or shop.

Once picked up, the chemicals are offered up to other participants for their use, free of cost. The current user interface also allows for laboratories to post chemicals they currently possess, but are willing to allow use of by other laboratories as well as chemicals they would need if it was available. 

Joining the ChemSwap Group

Upon receipt of usable chemicals, EHS evaluates the chemicals and will send notification to parties that have expressed interest. For more information contact EHS
