Re: Chemical Reuse System for University?



John,

Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Ohio has a well established chemical tracking and reuse program.
Details are at:  http://www.bgsu.edu/offices/envhs/orphmain.htm 

Dave Heinlen of BGSU is the program contact and an excellent resource.
The program received a Ohio Governor's Award for Outstanding Achievement in Pollution Prevention in 1995.

I have a request from a university for information on how to refine
their chemical tracking and reuse program. They already have a fairly
robust chemical re-use program that is run by their EH&S folks, but are
interested in making their program as effective as possible. As I
understand it, they pick up materials from campus labs and departments,
bring it to their 90-day storage facility, figure out whether it's
suitable for reuse, and if so provide it to other departments. They use
a database and email system to track and "market" the reusable
materials.

Does anybody have examples of universities or other facilities that have
really top notch exchange/reuse programs that could suggest any
additional improvements for them?

Thanks.
