Both chemical and medical waste pickups will be temporarily suspended throughout the Auburn University recognized holiday period. Any chemical and/or medical waste generated during the holiday break should be properly containerized, labeled and stored per guidelines found on the RMS/EHS webpage.

Chemical and medical waste pickups will resume on Jan. 3, 2022, on an as-requested basis.

Pathological waste pickup service will be provided throughout the holiday period on an as-needed and as-requested basis. Pickup requests shall be submitted through the AiM work management system.

Advance notice shall be coordinated with primary contact Steven Nolen (334-703-3859) or secondary contact Billy Cannon (334-703-0419) to ensure the timely removal of pathological waste from your areas during this period.

Faculty and staff that anticipate areas needing servicing over the observed holiday break, please contact Tom McCauley, Environmental Health and Safety Program Manager at 334-844-4870 so that RMS may coordinate in advance as best they can to accommodate needs.
