Canadian Nuclear Laboratories, our current disposal site for radioactive waste, has implemented new disposal guidelines and pricing policy.
One aspect of the new guidelines is the removal from the waste stream of all radioisotopes that can readily and easily be decayed.
What's new @ HWM?
IMPORTANT CHANGE CONCERNING BIOMEDICAL WASTE MANAGEMENT
In order for us to manage your biomedical waste more efficiently, we have added a "cytotoxique/cytotoxic" field on our biomedical waste box. It is mandatory for you to check that box if your waste contains cytotoxic material as it will go for incineration.
Empty glass bottles
Used chemical bottles which are empty can be disposed via regular garbage. However, make sure that the bottle is clean. Bottles and glass containers which were used to contain or hold chemicals must not be offered for recycling.
