Healthcare Waste FAQ.

Who should use medical waste containers?
A.
Medical waste generators: Medical waste is regulated by both the federal and state government. Any employer who generates medical waste should utilize regulatory compliant sharps disposal and destruction methods. Home self-injectors: Individuals who self-inject must properly dispose of their sharps to protect family and community members from risk of injury and infection. EPA Guidelines on proper destruction by homeowners can be found at EPA.gov.
Q.
What goes in a Sharps/medical waste container?
A.
Needles, syringes, lancets, scalpels and other sharp objects contaminated with blood or bodily fluids; gauze pads or other absorbent material that when squeezed would drip bodily fluids; used spill cleanup kits and employee protective apparel used in the cleanup.
Q.
Why am I required to have my waste picked up every 30 days?
A.
By law, bio-medical waste cannot be stored for longer than 30 days due to blood-borne pathogens and other potential public health hazards.
