Disposal of Waste

The safe disposal of waste and by-products of project fabrication processes is taken very seriously here at ECE. Not only for environmental reasons, but for safety, waste must be disposed of properly.

For all used batteries, please bring them down to ECE STORES in MCLD 112B.

For all chemical waste, please bring it down to the ECE STORES in MCLD 112B. All waste must have the following:

  • Chemical Name Labelled
  • Original Containers
  • TDG

For UBC owned electronic equipment (such as old oscilloscopes, hard drives, computers), please throw them in the electronics cage located at the base of the stairwell near the end of the machine shop. Then, send the inventory number of that item to purchasing [at] ece.ubc.ca so that item can be written off.

The disposal of these waste materials are handled by the machinist. Please inquire by visiting the machine shop.

For left over project waste such as IC's, electronic components and all materials that are not listed on this page, please contact the Engineering Services Contact for your course (CLICK HERE for current contacts)
