Specialized Solutions 

Republic Services offers time-saving lab packing solutions for chemical waste through safe and compliant identification, segregation, transportation and disposal for classrooms, laboratories, storage closets and other facilities.

High-Hazardous Remote-Opening and Stabilization 

When it comes to working with high-hazard materials, Republic Services has expertise developing lab pack waste strategies to safely assess, handle, and stabilize sensitive materials including peroxide-formers, pressurized containers, and potentially explosive chemicals. Our professionally trained field chemists will arrive on site to help you achieve compliance and protect your operations from costly, complicated and dangerous waste handling mistakes. 

Laboratory Chemical Moves  

Moving laboratory operations from one location to another can be a complex and daunting task. Our turnkey lab pack services make the transition as easy as possible, with a minimum amount of downtime for your researchers. 

Laboratory Decommissioning 

Our staff can provide laboratory closure plans and services tailored to fit your needs. Based on an assessment of the materials and types of operations previously performed at your facility, we will develop custom lab decommissioning procedures including lab packing services and laboratory chemical disposal.
