Biohazardous Waste

Compliant Biohazardous Waste Disposal

Medical waste, is broadly classified as any item that comes into contact with body fluids. The Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988 defines medical waste as “any solid waste that is generated in the diagnosis, treatment, or immunization of human beings or animals, in research pertaining thereto, or in the production or testing of biologicals. However, each state has unique requirements and definitions of medical waste.

Medical Waste Disposal
The definition of medical waste includes, but is not limited to: wastes generated by hospitalized patients who are isolated to protect others from communicable diseases; cultures and stocks of infectious agents, including specimen cultures from medical and pathological laboratories, cultures and stocks of infectious agents from research and industrial laboratories, wastes from the production of biologicals, discarded live and attenuated vaccines, and culture dishes and devices used to transfer, inoculate, and mix cultures; human blood and blood products such as serum, plasma, and other blood components; pathological wastes, such as tissues, organs, body parts and body fluids, that are removed during surgery and autopsy; discarded sharps  used in patient care or which have come in contact with infectious agents during use in medical, research or industrial laboratories.
