Chemical Exchange Program

The following table is a list of chemicals that have been identified as used on campus that are no longer of use to the original user. Instead of sending the chemicals for disposal Health, Safety and Environment will assist you in obtaining them to be used for your specific purposes.

The Chemical Exchange Program is a free service provided to the campus.  All labs are encouraged to participate in the program. Contact Health, Safety and Environment at HSE.ok@ubc.ca if you are interested in any of the chemicals below.

* New Chemicals Added – January 2019. See bottom of list. *
