The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality is launching the Oklahoma School Chemical Disposal Program. The School Chemical Disposal Program is a one-time service to Oklahoma public schools to remove unused, outdated, and potentially dangerous chemicals from school laboratories across the state and provide an opportunity for schools to safely dispose of their unwanted chemical inventory at no cost to the school. The goal of this program is to create a safer laboratory environment for students, teachers, and other staff members and to prevent any laboratory chemical disasters.

This program is provided by DEQ’s Site Cleanup Assistance Program and Pollution Prevention (P2).
