How to Responsibly Dispose of Lab EquipmentWorking in a lab means the involvement and use of a wide variety of equipment. What happens to all that equipment when it’s no longer needed, broken, or just ready for the trash? Laboratories produce some of the most electronic waste out of all the medical testing fields and beyond. We’re going to break down how to responsibly dispose of lab equipment, so you can get rid of it in a safe and effective manner.


Laboratory equipment can be difficult to dispose of in an environmentally-friendly way. This is due to several factors, including but not limited to:
