Biohazard/Contaminated Property

Before lab or clinical items can be surplused, Environmental Health and Safety (East Campus) or Prospective Health (West Campus) is required to inspect the items for contaminates and approve removal from the lab or clinic prior to being surplused. An item is considered contaminated if it has come in contact with patients, body fluids or blood, hazardous chemicals, etc. Departments, labs, and clinics are responsible for notifying the appropriate safety department for their location. If lab or clinic related surplus items have not been verified or approved by the appropriate safety department, Moving Services cannot accept your items or process your move requests. Moving Services has been instructed to NOT pick up these items unless they are identified and cleared by EH & S or Prospective Health.
