SAFETYmatters - Hazardous Waste Removal as Ramp-Up Begins

EHS is operating hazardous waste collections for labs who have continued to generate waste throughout the pandemic shutdown.  Now that departments are beginning to ramp up, we are ready to resume our regular chemical and radioactive waste collection schedule as buildings reopen.  The schedule will include regular weekly/biweekly stops in addition to requests received through the Chemical Waste or Radioactive Waste Pickup Request forms. This means that waste pickups will be conducted following the regular schedule.

Biohazardous waste collection is normally serviced by Stericycle or EHS, Monday through Friday. EHS will be monitoring loading docks and service will resume as needed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jim Pyrz 335-4625 or Tim Weber 335-4626.
