Waste Management Plan

This Waste Management Plan is intended to provide a roadmap for the proper management of wastes generated at St. John’s University.  It contains both requirements of state and federal environmental law as well as University policies.  The Plan applies to all of the University’s campuses, although the majority of waste generation activities occur at the Queens campus. 

The University generated wastes are divided into the following 6 categories:

Brief descriptions of each waste type are contained within this site.  Once you have located your particular waste type, click on the type and you will find requirements for handling, storage and disposal.

The Plan is maintained by the University’s Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) Department.  Questions regarding the content or use of the Plan should be directed to the Director, Department of Environmental Health and Safety.

A list of names of people responsible for implementing this waste management plan may be found in Appendix A.
