Hazardous Waste Pickup Service and Schedule-Environmental Health & Safety - Carnegie Mellon University

Hazardous Waste Pickup Service

All hazardous wastes are picked up at the point of generation (laboratory, studio or shop.)

  • Do not leave wastes outside of hazardous waste vaults
  • Do not remove waste from the area where it was generated.

All waste pickups must be requested by filling out the online Hazardous Waste Pickup Request Form. Wastes are then picked up by CMU's Waste Contractor, according to a yearly waste pickup schedule.

Pickup Guidelines

  • Request forms must be submitted by Friday before the scheduled pickup date.
  • Someone MUST be present during the scheduled pickup hours, unless prior arrangements have been made.

Carnegie Mellon Hazardous Waste Certification Tags must be attached to each container of hazardous waste scheduled for pickup.
