Chemical waste inventory and pickup request

NEW PROCEDURE!  In order to have your chemical waste picked up, you must log in the myLab software and use the"chemical waste pick-up" module.  To learn how to use this feature, you can register to a live training or consult the user guide on page 15.  Please note that this module is to be used for chemical waste only.  The procedure for biomedical waste and radioactive waste is the same as before.  If you do not have access to myLab, please contact Parisa Parang, myLab officer at parisa.parang [at] mcgill.ca (subject: myLab%20access) .  For any other enquiries, contact us via our general email address hwm [at] mcgill.ca.
