9. Onsite Treatment and Disposal
There is a general prohibition against onsite treatment and disposal of any hazardous waste
without a permit. Stephen F. Austin State University is not currently permitted for on-site
treatment or disposal of hazardous wastes. Departments cannot treat and dispose hazardous
waste without appropriate waste permit. Unauthorized treatment and disposal of hazardous
waste can lead to heavy penalties to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars and the
respective departments and individuals will be held responsible. If the waste is regulated and the
laboratory is using published or recognized methods, they are still unauthorized to treat waste
without appropriate permit.
