Residents near the University of Connecticut have expressed concerns about plans to move a hazardous waste storage facility to a location near a former landfill on campus, and contend the plans are not subject to sufficient regulatory scrutiny. The waste would be held for up to 90 days before being hauled away for disposal, and could include chemical solvents, re-agents, alcohol, biological waste and low-level radioactive waste, among other materials.
