Orphan Chemical Room

The Department of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) has free "orphaned" chemicals that are available to all researchers on a "first come, first serve" basis.

Orphan chemicals are donated by laboratories or collected by EHS to be re-used, re-purposed, or recycled to reduce our environmental impact.

Highlights of the new program include:

  • A new orphan chemical room is located on-campus. No need to wait for transport from an off-campus location.
  • All Wright State laboratories can participate by obtaining "orphan" chemicals or donating "orphan" chemicals.
  • The list of the chemicals available on our on-line chemical inventory program ChemWatch
