INITIALS

Radioactive liquid waste should not be disposed of into laboratory sinks. However, the washwater from the rinsing of your glassware, etc. may be put into the laboratory sink if it is less than or equal to 0.1 uCi. If activity is greater than 0.1 uCi, collect the 1st rinsate into a liquid waste container.

* You may place a check mark for activity <0.1 uCi.

Dispose of only soluble material, or biological material that is readily dispersible in water, into sinks.

Discharge liquid waste slowly with water running from the faucet to dilute it.
