Radioactive waste

Carefully monitored and tracked containers of radioisotopes with short half-lives are stored in our vault to decay down to safe levels


Requisite containers

Hazardous Waste Management provides all the containers you need usually free of charge.

To ensure either the safe handling of hazardous materials, or to maximize disposal options, the use of these containers is encouraged and sometimes enforced.

For safety reasons, do NOT overfill the containers. Also, make sure to enter the information on the supplied label LEGIBLY and COMPLETELY.

Chemical, biomedical and radioactive waste pickup schedule

Regular weekly collection

Buildings equipped with a hazardous waste storage are placed on a regular weekly pick-up. Users are asked to bring their full containers to these areas and exchange them for empty containers. For safety reasons, only containers approved by Hazardous Waste Management  can be stored in those rooms.
