By selecting Medical Waste Pros as your medical waste disposal provider, you can have absolute confidence in our expertise and experience in securely managing your waste while adhering to all relevant regulations.

Medical Waste in California is regulated by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Some regulations set forth by CDPH include:
- Medical Waste Identification: Medical waste must be properly identified and segregated from other types of waste. It should be labeled with the biohazard symbol or color-coded to indicate its hazardous nature.
- Packaging and Containment: Medical waste must be packaged in leak-proof, puncture-resistant containers that are securely closed to prevent any potential exposure or release during handling or transport.
- Storage: Facilities generating medical waste must store it in designated areas that are inaccessible to the public, secured to prevent unauthorized access, and equipped with appropriate signage.
- Transportation: Medical waste transportation must comply with specific requirements, including using authorized transporters, properly labeled containers, and appropriate vehicles designed for the safe transport of hazardous materials.
- Treatment and Disposal: Medical waste must be treated and disposed of at permitted facilities that comply with state and federal regulations. Treatment methods may include incineration, autoclaving, or alternative technologies that effectively inactivate or destroy pathogens.
- Record-Keeping: Facilities generating medical waste are generally required to maintain records of waste management activities, including storage, transportation, treatment, and disposal. These records should be available for inspection by regulatory agencies.
