Animal Disposal

This service is for the disposal of experimental animal tissue and carcasses. You may dispose of animal bedding by this method if it contains pathogenic agents. No other materials are permitted.

  1. If pathogens are present in the waste, identify below and affix a biohazard sticker to each box.
  2. Boxes are incinerated at 1500 to 1800ºF. This incinerator is inappropriate for the disposal of chemicals. Chemicals present in the waste must be in quantities small enough to be inconsequential. If present, please identify any toxic chemicals below.
  3. Place tissue in a plastic bag and box. If needed to keep bag from moving, surround with packing materials approved by Environment, Health & Safety.
  4. Seal boxes with tape and freeze completely to prevent leakage.
  5. Boxes must not exceed 40 pounds (or 20 kg). On each box, write the approximate box weight.
  6. Pickup time is after 9 am on Wednesday and Friday. Place boxes on your loading dock at 9 am.
  7. Send request via web (form below) to schedule or cancel a waste pickup.
