Waste pickups and container deliveries are experiencing severe delays. The delay is a result of ongoing construction and maintenance work at the Environmental Service Building (#344).
Due to the construction activity and the necessary safety precautions being implemented, the Environmental Service Building (#344) is currently operating with limited capacity, causing significant disruptions to waste management services in the area.
In the meantime, we kindly request your cooperation and patience. If your waste submission or container delivery has been affected, we ask that you allow up to three weeks before contacting us about your submission. Rest assured, our team will prioritize addressing the backlog and will reach out to you as soon as your request can be processed.
Due to staffing and operational limitations, please allow 5–10 business days for approved waste submissions to be picked up.
Items improperly stored, tagged, or labeled will not be picked up and will need to be resubmitted once corrected.
Contact us at email@example.com if you are planning on doing any lab cleanouts.
Please ensure you are using the correct chemical waste tag.
Select the type of waste you wish to submit.
Fluorescent lamps and paint that are associated with a construction or renovation project please submit a Service Request.
Request a Chemical Waste Pickup for Lead-acid batteries, Used Pesticides, Mercury Thermostats, PCB-containing Lamp Ballasts and Paint.
All other batteries go into battery recycling bins located around campus.

How Do I Properly Manage My Waste?
A common question ESSR receives is where can I put my waste? Can it be poured down the drain or placed in the trash can?
Some substances may react violently with one another and must be kept apart.
