Garage Cards can be checked out from the Lab's Site Access Office (Building 65A) or the at JGI. There is a limited supply of cards, and cards must be returned within 24 hours of issuance.

Leaks from Dumpsters require costly clean-up to prevent storm drain contamination.

With Rain Here, Proper Disposal is Crucial

Now that the rainy season has officially begun, staff in the Environment, Health, and Safety Division would like to heighten the Lab community's awareness of dumpster use. To prevent contamination of storm water discharge, keep dumpster lids closed to keep rain out, and don't use dumpsters to dispose of liquids. A recent inspection required the cleanup of a stain on the ground where the dumpster had leaked, at a cost of $1,200. If not removed, leaks are washed into the Lab's storm drain system, which discharges directly to Strawberry Creek. For more information on the Lab's Storm Water Program and proper liquid disposal, contact Ginny Lackner (x7413).

Public Hearing On
Lab Waste Permit

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) will host a public hearing on Berkeley Lab's request to renew its permit to store and treat waste it generates.
