New Service for Infectious Waste and Biohazard Removal
March 27, 2007, Volume 53, No. 27

Penn’s Purchasing Services and the Office of Environmental Health & Radiation Safety (EHRS) recently negotiated a 5-year contract for infectious waste removal services with The Cardinal Group. Beginning March 12, 2007, The Cardinal Group has begun providing all services related to infectious waste and biohazard sharps removal to the University of Pennsylvania. This new contract was developed to reduce cost and improve service to the Penn community.

To set up an account with The Cardinal Group, please contact Abby Forney at (610) 929-2883. To schedule an infectious waste pick-up, contact either Abby Forney or David Rivera at (610) 929-2883.  

Faculty, students or staff that sign the manifests that accompany their infectious waste must be trained on shipping regulations. A copy of all generator signed manifests must be sent to EHRS at (215) 898-0140. The manifests for all Penn accounts are kept on file in the EHRS office.

Please contact Tina Bogac at (215) 746-6706 if you have questions or to schedule training.
