Someone in the Lab must “disinfect” the equipment (using either a 70% EtOH solution or a 10% Bleach solution) before anyone from Facilities Management (FM) will move or service any lab equipment. The Laboratory Safety and Maintenance Checklist must be filled out, signed, printed and posted on each piece of equipment.
If disposing a freezer, an FM billable request must be submitted to have FM remove the refrigerant from the minus 80- freezer, before it can be disposed of.
The department will need to work with Property Accounting for disposal of the old equipment, prior to requesting that the UIC Movers dispose of it.
Once the equipment is disinfected, the EHSO form is competed & posted, the SD form has been acquired, a billable FM request can be submitted for the Movers to dispose of your equipment.
