Stericycle Service Agreement & Schedule

Columbia University Morningside Campus has enhanced its existing service agreement with Stericycle Inc., the University’s preferred vendor for regulated medical waste disposal services.  Every Tuesday and Friday between 11 am and 2pm, Stericycle will be onsite to remove regulated medical waste from your lab.  Please help the program run smooth by following a few basic instructions:

  1. Lab must ready their medical waste for safe handling and disposal.
    • Labs must tie red bags closed and engage interlocking lid on grey medical waste containers
    • Snap Lids closed on sharps containers
  2. Lab should roll properly containerized waste on dollies into corridor outside of lab door between 9am and 11am on Tuesdays and Fridays only.  Medical Waste must not be rolled out on the night prior to service.
  3. Lab should place full sharps containers along side or on top of the full closed grey medical waste container in the corridor.
  4. Stericycle will replace the grey medical waste container with a new empty one lined with one red bag.
  5. EH&S will provide each lab with a supply of 8-gallon and 2-gallon sharps containers.  Additional containers will be available in the Biology Stockroom and the EH&S.
