Vacating Lab Spaces
- Disbursement of equipment needs to be documented via the campus property disposal process (see below).
- Make a detailed list of every piece of equipment with a CU tag on it.
- Write down who takes it and the new location of this equipment.
- Do not return gas cylinders to the company, but transfer them to other labs.
- Create a list of the cylinders that includes serial number, gas type, and room location.
- Please process an Empty cylinder return for expired and empty cylinders.
Chemicals and Bio Hazards:
- This includes biological and non-biological samples, radioactive materials, acids, etc.
- This material must be disposed of according to the procedures established by EH&S (http://ehs.colorado.edu; 303-492-6025).
- Equipment that has come in contact with hazardous material must be cleaned out appropriately. An attached EH&S form provides instructions.
Glassware, pipettes, other lab supplies:
- You may contribute extra lab supplies to other labs.
- You are responsible for disposing of all remaining items in the lab. In compliance with EH&S rules, every item to be disposed of must be washed in a bleach water solution or put through a sanitizing system.
Property Services (PS):
- They will pick up ALL unwanted and broken equipment: tables, chairs, equipment, computers, etc.
- Place all items for PS in a specific location.
- Fill out the disposal request list (Disposal List form) by including the item description, CU tag #, serial #, and condition code.
- Once your list is completed, contact Trisha Ward (303-492-1731).
It is also common courtesy to clean your lab space before you leave:
