HI...thanks for the info. I agree...it's very vague! I thought at some point there was info. that anything over 25# per month is considered "regulated waste" and needed to be picked up??? Does that ring a bell?
Also, what is regulated waste? Used: first aid supplies, medical supplies, clean up supplies....etc? Correct?
check with your states DEP. Here in Jersey I can throw anything out as long as it is not wet saturated to the point of dripping or dry saturated, weight does not ever come into the equation. I also checked with my counties Bureau of Solid Waste asd their regs are based on what the state says, they do not have anything stricter.
I'm under contract with a medical waste company (Stericycle) for two pickups per year at a cost of <$100. I haven't used them in more than year because we do not generate that much material.
thats the keyword terri, you will most likely have to get yourself a Biowaste permit # so they can pick it up, similar to a HazWaste ID#. If you are not a medical waste generator you will most likely not need it...if you are is most likely determined by your states regs...if you are using them for bloodborne cleanup removal you may be able to piggyback on their generator # which is how some companies out here I have dealt with do it.
Also, what is regulated waste? Used: first aid
supplies, medical supplies, clean up supplies....etc?
Regulated medical waste is your biohazardous waste, infectious medical waste, anything contaminated by blood, body fluids or other PIM's.
