Hazardous Waste Pickup

The Hazardous Waste Team at EH&S picks up hazardous chemical waste every other Tuesday (alternating Tuesdays with Biological Waste). See our calendar above for the next pickup.

 To request a waste pickup, please ensure your waste is in compliance with the guidelines below and then fill out the form at the bottom. 

If you have a special circumstance (lab closeout, inordinate amount of containers, unknowns) please email or call us at 7-2211

Waste Pickup Guidelines

  • Waste containers must not be overfilled. 90% of capacity is considered full.
  • Waste containers must be labelled properly (yellow sticker and waste tag)
  • Waste must be in a Satellite Accumulation Area
  • Requests must be made BEFORE the scheduled pickup date
  • Waste must be in a chemical-compatible container (no old food containers, no liquids in open top containers, etc.)
  • If an empty chemical container is being used as a waste container, the original label must be completely defaced and our triple rinse procedure should be followed
  • All waste containers must be labelled as soon as waste is placed in them
  • Try not to sign the waste tag until the waste is ready to be picked up- this way EH&S doesn't accidentally pick up a container that you are still using


Any waste containers that are not in compliance with these guidelines will NOT be picked up by EH&S until they are in compliance.
