  • There are regular trash cans placed at specific locations in the organic lab. Unfortunately, certain regulations limit the amount of trash cans that can be placed in each lab. As a result there might not be one handy when you need it. This in turn makes it tempting to place trash in broken glass boxes. Please take the time to locate a regular trash can and place items such as paper, gloves, and other harmless waste in them, even if you have to walk a little longer.
