Contact the stockroom with any questions you may have.

If you find that you received a chemical directly, please contact the stockroom to make arrangements for it to be entered into the inventory.

Empty Chemical Containers - Barcodes

Faculty/ Staff must help ensure that our chemical inventory is accurate.  When a chemical container is empty, please remove the “Mount Holyoke Chemical Inventory Barcode” and place it on the Barcode Return Sheet. You can keep this sheet posted near a hazardous waste satellite collection area if your lab has one or turn it to the Science Center Stockroom.
