research activities at the University utilize radioactive
isotopes, or use equipment containing radioactive
waste, generated at the University, must be properly
packaged, labeled, and segregated prior to disposal.
A yellow radioisotope disposal form must accompany
all waste containers stored in labs and be completed
prior to a waste pick-up. The yellow ticket is
used to track isotope use and disposal. Radioactive
containers are generally supplied by REHS and
vary in size.
request a pick-up of radioactive waste, please
fill out the Request for Radioactive Waste Disposal
Form. Once the Form has been completed and submitted
via email, fax, or mail, the removal of the waste
may be scheduled (within 5 working days for the
Piscataway and New Brunswick campuses).
