The regulations that mandate regulated waste disposal are drafted and enforced at the state and local levels, however OSHA has designed guidelines for disposal process that protect the community, and they should be emulated when possible.
When disposing of regulated waste, separate it into 6 different categories:
Isolation Waste – waste that has potentially been contaminated with a highly communicable disease. It’s typically created by hospitalized patients or animals that have been isolated to protect others because their disease is highly communicable.
Pathological Waste – human anatomical wastes, organs, tissues, or body parts.
Contaminated Sharps – waste that includes any item that can easily penetrate the skin, waste bags, or cardboard boxes, and can induce subdermal inoculation of infectious agents. To qualify as medical, these items must have been used in medical, research, or industrial laboratories on animals or humans.
Cultures and Stocks of Infectious Agents – also known as microbiological waste, it is typically generated from clinical or research laboratory procedures involving communicable infectious diseases.
Human Blood and Blood Products – any blood products or components including serum and plasma, or any bodily fluids that are visually contaminated with blood. This includes fluids where it might be difficult to differentiate between bodily fluids and blood.
Contaminated Animal Carcasses, Body Parts, and Bedding – waste from in vivo pharmaceutical testing, animals intentionally exposed to pathogens in research, or biologicals production.
