Surplus Chemicals

UW Safety Office

The Surplus Chemical Program was created to reduce the volume of chemical waste and the cost of disposal. At the same time it helps campus teaching, research, and service units to save the costs of purchasing new chemicals.


A wide variety of "pre-owned" chemicals are available. Some have never been opened. Others, though still usable, were no longer needed by their original owners. The inventory contains both common and not-so-common chemicals, including solvents, acids, indicators, organic research chemicals, and inorganic reagents.

NOTE: The Surplus Chemical Program is available ONLY to members of the University of Wyoming campus community and its affiliates. We are not able to make these chemicals available to other universities, research facilities, private companies, or members of the general public.

To request items from our surplus inventory, please e-mail Linda Mickley at mickley@uwyo.edu.  Please include the Principal Investigator's  name, department, building, room number and a contact phone number. No requests will be taken over the phone. The surplus chemicals you request will be delivered to you at no cost. 

If you have good chemicals (in their original containers) that you would like to donate to surplus, please completely fill out the on-line Hazardous Materials Request for Disposal Form and write "for surplus" after the chemical's name in the Description field.

If you give chemicals to surplus, there is no guarantee they will be accepted or that you can get them back.
