Bio-hazard/Sharps Disposal Service
NESA provides a fee-based bio-hazard/sharps disposal service for all licensed practitioners and students of the college. We accept used or expired acupuncture needles or sharps, no other medical waste will be accepted. Included in this fee are complimentary replacement containers equal to the total volume of your disposal. We will make every effort to provide replacements of your choice from our available stock but reserve the right to make substitutes. Alumni receive 10% off the regular fee for disposal and because we charge you by volume instead of by container your savings really add up.
To speed up the disposal process please have the Bio-hazard/Sharps disposal form filled out and your containers properly marked. Staff are not allowed to handle, tape or mark your disposal for you. We reserve the right to refuse any disposal that does not comply with these regulations and policies.
You will be given the payment receipt and your form back for your records. Please keep this copy for your compliance records.
Bio-hazard/Sharps disposals may be made during NESA Store hours Monday-Thursday 9:00AM to 7:00PM and weekends during Continuing Education events. Please call ahead on Fridays. The disposal service is not available on Sundays, holidays and during Academic breaks when the college is closed.

Continuing Education offers an opportunity for reliable, personable alumni to serve as rotating hosts for CE programs. In exchange for providing ground transportation and other logistical support for a particular CE seminar, alumni hosts may attend that seminar at no cost. Contact the CE Dept. at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.

The Kelly Library's substantial collection, both in print and online, is freely available to alumni. If you're in the region, you still have borrowing privileges for all of our books and DVDs. And all alumni, regardless of location, are allowed online access to multiple research databases with citations and full-text articles from thousands of journals. This access does require a login, however.
