EPA Schools Chemical Cleanout Campaign
The EPA ranks responsible chemical management as a top priority for schools. That's why it has launched the School Chemical Cleanout Campaign (SC3) to help schools remove inappropriate, unneeded, and improperly stored chemicals from school campuses.
There are literally tons of chemicals in schools nationwide that need to be removed. They may be in stockrooms, basements, and supply closets. They may be stored improperly, and in some cases can lead to fire, explosions, or toxic fumes.
Learn how to deal with potentially dangerous chemicals at your school by watching the short video and following the steps on the EPA's Schools Chemical Cleanout Campaign website.
The EPA also has information and resources on many school environmental issues like energy, air quality, playground materials on its Healthy School Environments website: "The healthy school
environments website is designed to provide one-stop access to the many
programs and resources available to help prevent and resolve environmental
issues in schools."
