Environmental Management

J. David Hagan - Director of Environmental Management Program

Environmental Management is responsible for all UAB activities that have environmental impacts, including day-to-day regulatory compliance and permitting related to hazardous waste management, air emissions and wastewater discharges. We also coordinate environmental site assessments on prospective UAB property acquisitions. We seek to develop and implement programs that ensure UAB compliance with state, federal and county environmental requirements and which maintain the university's commitment to good environmental stewardship. 

Training:


Disposing of hazardous or regulated waste is covered under federal, state, and local mandates. Hazardous and regulated waste can't be emptied into regular trash cans, poured down sinks, or emptied into the sewer system. Doing so could harm the environment and cost UAB dollars that could be spent elsewhere. Please think before you put or pour hazardous or regulated waste in the wrong place.

Household Hazardous Waste Event

As part of UAB's Earth Month celebration, we are partnering with One Stop Environmental to put on a Household Hazardous Waste event at the UAB Recycling Center located at 620 11th St. South.

Household hazardous wastes (HHW) are common materials found in the home (cleaners, solvents, paint) that would be classified and regulated as hazardous waste if generated by industries (or colleges, hospitals and research labs). However, HHW is not subject to the same stringent rules as regular hazardous waste and much of it is improperly disposed of or allowed to build up to dangerous levels in homes.

UAB's HHW event will be held on April 11, 2014 between 10 am and 2 pm. It is open only to UAB students, faculty and staff so bring your ID along with your waste. Take this opportunity to rid your home of these dangerous items.
