WASTe (Online Hazardous Waste Tag Program)

WASTe (Online Hazardous Waste Tag Program)

February 4, 2014

The WASTe is an online system used to label your hazardous waste. It provides all of the required components of labeling hazardous waste.

Hazardous waste tags are generated through online WASTe Program. Each Principal Investigator (PI) has an account that the entire lab(s) can use. Users will need to have an active UCLA Logon to access this program. For Principal Investigators new to UCLA, send an email to hazardousmaterials@ehs.ucla.edu to create your account. Include the following information in the email:

  • First and last name of the Principal Investigator (PI)
  • PI phone extension
  • PI email address
  • Name of Safety/Waste Coordinator (this will be your WASTe "delegate")
  • Safety/Waste Coordinator email address
  • Department
  • Building and Room Number(s)

For assistance on the system, refer to the WASTe Fact Sheet

Clear packing envelopes are provided by Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) to affix the printed tag to the container. These are provided for your convenience but are not mandatory for use. You can obtain the clear packing envelopes from the EH&S staff during the hazardous waste pick-up or from the EH&S office on the 4th floor of the Strathmore Building.

Note: All hazardous waste tags need to be printed on the accumulation start date. That is the date that you first start adding waste to a container.
