Lab Packing Services: Spring is here! Now is the time to schedule!

Many of our clients will be working on reorganizing projects, clearing out warehouse space and storage areas. Often, clients discover chemicals in small quantities that are obsolete, out of date, leaking or contaminated, even unknown. The proper packing, transportation and disposal of such chemicals is called a Lab Pack.  ERG Environmental Services specializes in Lab packing services.  Lab Packing is a commonly requested service from our client base although it is technically demanding.  ERG uses our professional, highly trained staff to segregate, inventory, containerize and prepare the regulated documentation.  ERG has over 25 years of experience in environmental services including chemical & lab packing in many industry segments.

The reasons for lab packing may be different, but clients share some common features. They have accumulated chemicals for many months, years, or even decades.  The safety risks involved with continued accumulation is significant.  The clients realize that the items are impractical to keep, and decide that the chemicals are not worth the risk of keeping them stored.

ERG will take inventories, segregate, stabilize, package, label and transport the chemicals following all regulations and laws.

Proper Disposal
