Toner Cartridge Recycling Program
Toner ink cartridges without return address labels can be dropped off at any time (without boxes or any other packaging) at two designed drop-off areas on the main campus: the 20 Shattuck St. loading dock and the Hale Building for Transformative Medicine’s utility room, located adjacent to the service elevators on the ground floor. All toner that is packed with return address labels must be brought either to the BWH Mailroom, located on the Lower Pike, or a designated drop-off box. View a full list of drop-off locations.

Infection Control Reminder
All BWH employees, volunteers and affiliated non-employees must report to the Occupational Health Services (OHS) if they have symptoms of, or have been exposed to, an infectious illness/disease. State regulatory agencies require the hospital to keep a log of these incidents. Please contact OHS at 617-732-6034 to report these conditions before coming to work. Learn more.
