14.4 Radioactive Waste Disposal

Radioactive material cannot be disposed of in the regular trash. EHS provides a billable service to pick up radioactive waste every Tuesday morning the University is open. Radioactive waste is divided into several distinct categories and should be separated accordingly. Please read the Radiation Safety Manual, Disposal of Radioactive Material section, for proper procedures in preparing your radioactive waste for pickup. A radioactive waste pickup may be requested by calling 607-255-8200 by 4:00 PM Monday. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact the EHS Hazardous Materials Specialist.
