In special circumstances for example emergencies, accommodations will be made if possible for pick ups after the cut off time.
Returned Goods Coordination
Returned goods can be returned to the vendor following the Returned Goods Process. The end user contacts Purchasing at ext. 6152, who will contact the vendor to determine whether the item is going to be kept, repaired, returned, or replaced. They will then obtain a Returned Goods Authorization and a mode of shipping. The material to be returned goes directly to Shipping and Receiving. If the item is to be picked up and taken to Shipping and Receiving, call John McElaney ext. 6295.
Transportation of Hazardous Material
Shipping and Receiving is able to receive hazardous material. The first step in alerting Shipping and Receiving of the incoming order begins in Purchasing. When ordering hazardous materials, the end user should write "Hazardous Materials" on the purchase requisition. The buyer in Purchasing will then alert Thomas Osborne, Safety Coordinator, of the order. When the material is received, Shipping and Receiving first calls Thomas Osborne to alert her of the incoming order. Lee Gagnon is authorized to handle distribution of hazardous materials to end-users. In some instances, a Dangerous Goods Form must be completed by the end-user. Contact Thomas Osborne ext. 6379 for more information.
