Radioactive Waste Disposal


Radioactive waste must be accumulated and disposed according to the UTSA Radioactive Waste Disposal Instructions. Waste must be segregated by half-life (short-lived: P-32, P-33, S-35; long-lived: C-14, H-3; special hazard: I-125) and then by physical form (solid, liquid, sharps (metal and glass), scintillation vials, etc). Solid waste must be dry, liquid waste free of debris. Hazardous chemicals may only be added to radioactive waste with advance approval from Radiation Safety Personnel. Biological hazards must be inactivated before pickup. Care must be taken to avoid creating radioactive waste that is prohibitively expensive or difficult to dispose of. Fill out and submit the following form for radioactive waste pick-up. Fill out and submit the Radioactive Materials Disposal form (PDF) for radioactive waste pick-up.

For more information, contact the Radiation Safety Personnel.
