Radioactive Waste

The Radiation Safety Department is based in NYU Medical School but it serves as an institutional resource for all components of New York University, and also for the NYU Hospitals Center, Bellevue Hospital Center, and VA Medical Center. However, if you have a specific question regarding radioactive waste at Washington Square Campus, please contact the NYU Radiation Safety Officer (212-998-8480) prior to servicing or removing equipment containing sealed radiation sources (gas chromatographs, liquid scintillation counters, etc), x-ray equipment, lasers, or equipment producing non-ionizing radiation (UV radiation).
