Through the cooperative efforts of numerous state agencies, the state of Iowa has refined its plan for safe, expeditious and effective identification and redistribution and/or disposal of hazardous chemicals from school science storerooms. Following assessment of high school and community college storerooms, review of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for handling and disposal of hazardous substances, review of related chemical literature, and testing at the University of Iowa, a list of 100 "chemicals considered more hazardous than their education value" was synthesized.
