You're done!  Typically pickups will occur within two weeks of request submission.  Your lab location, the volume of waste and the type of waste may impact how long it takes us to fulfill your pickup request.  In some cases, our waste vendor (not UGA staff) may pickup waste directly from your lab.  Direct-vendor pickups typically take additional time since we work with them to prepare required transportation paperwork based on your waste content.
