The Lessee agrees not to produce, use, dispose of, or otherwise allow the release of hazardous materials, substances, or waste on the premises, land, or adjacent properties. Hazardous refers to any material, substance, or waste that federal, state, or local regulations, laws, or ordinance defines as dangerous, toxic, or hazardous.
The Lessee agrees to comply with all federal, state, and local laws surrounding hazardous materials. The Lessee will immediately notify the Lessor if they discover asbestos or asbestos-containing material. The Lessor will consult with an AHERA-certified asbestos abatement contractor to commence the removal, remediations, or other actions.
Should the Lessee generate any biomedical waste or operate equipment that can generate harmful radiation, they must dispose of or handle it per federal, state, and local laws.

The Lessee must dispose of biomedical and hazardous substances, waste, and materials at their own expense and ensure it is not present on the property.
