Waste disposal

MolES waste disposal procedures


MolES has two autoclaves available for use by building occupants.

The third floor autoclave is smaller and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is NOT approved for sterilization of biohazardous waste.

The fourth floor autoclave is larger and may be used for biohazardous waste sterilization. Time on the 4th floor autoclave should be scheduled in advance through the MolES Autoclave Calendar.

NEITHER AUTOCLAVE SHOULD BE USED WITHOUT COMPLETING AUTOCLAVE TRAINING. Please contact MolES@uw.edu if you need to schedule a training session.
