Re: High school Lab Chemicals

The Bowling State University located in Bowling Green, Ohio administers a program that finds a "home" for unwanted (orphan) laboratory chemicals that are still useful.  The program is directed toward academic institutions and small businesses.

A Pennsylvania school district will be clearing all of the obsolete
chemicals out of their high school laboratories.  As part of this process
they are interested in developing a training program for their teachers on
proper chemical management--from ordering the proper chemicals in the proper
amounts, to safely handling the chemicals, to proper storage and disposal
methods for the chemicals.

They have already gone to some microchemistry, so as not to use as many
chemicals, but are  looking for additional ideas in this area also.

Has anyone developed programs of this type , or know of resources available
in this area?
