Hazardous Materials Shipping

Currently certification for HazMat/Dangerous Goods Shipping at both RECs have expired, and we are without the capability of shipping Hazardous Materials from the RECs (except dry ice through Ed Scheenstra at NWREC). We have the following options until new certifications can be obtained:

  • Drive the hazardous material directly to recipient.
  • Contact University of Washington hazmat shippers.
  • Contact Joe Price (360-546-9788) and Jordan Goodspeed (360-546-9083) at WSU Vancouver.
  • WSU Tri-Cities and WSU Spokane also have certified hazmat/dangerous goods shippers.

If you are unsure if a shipment qualifies as Hazardous Materials/Dangerous Goods, please consult with the Office of Research Assurances.
