If any laboratories or facilities at New York University require hazardous waste removal, please submit your request with our Hazardous/Universal Waste Pick up Request Form.

We pick up from:

  • Washington Square
  • College of Dentistry
  • Institute of Fine Arts

The Waste Room, located at Brown 1158, is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:15pm-3:15pm.  

The hazardous waste contractor will supply containers for the bulbs. Please make sure that all universal waste is stored in appropriate containers and are appropriately labeled. Click here for more information on universal waste containers and labels. 

Note: Certain materials, such as cyanides, organic peroxides, lead, PCBs, materials requiring refrigeration and compressed gas cylinders, may require special removals and will be scheduled on an "as needed" basis. Clean-outs of entire labs will also be scheduled on an "as needed" basis. Please contact Environmental Health and Safety several weeks in advance of lab clean-outs to arrange for qualified personnel to perform the work.
