    The Veterinary Diagnostic Lab (VDL) at the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) functions similar to a human medical institution, in that it generates waste that is not recyclable due to biosafety considerations. This is an unfortunate waste.


Special recyclables, such as chemicals, batteries, ballasts, and bulbs, are part of the overall initiative set by the 2010 iCAP to increase recycling rates on campus. Such recyclables, however, require special solutions. The University has been working toward finding solutions to recycle these goods.
