Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“

biohazardous-waste-disposal

Biomedical waste is outlined in Florida Administrative Code (64E-16.002) as: “Any solid or liquid waste which may present a threat of infection to humans, including nonliquid tissue, body parts, blood, blood products, and body fluids from humans and other primates; laboratory and veterinary wastes which contain human disease-causing agents; and discarded sharps. The following are also included:

(a) Used, absorbent materials saturated with blood, blood products, body fluids, or excretions or secretions contaminated with visible blood; and absorbent materials saturated with blood or blood products that have dried.
(b) Non-absorbent, disposable devices that have been contaminated with blood, body fluids or, secretions or excretions visibly contaminated with blood, but have not been treated by an approved method.”

If your facility only produces “sharps”, you can rest assured that’s the majority of medical waste for facilities (~80% of our Jacksonville clients also only produce “sharps” as their medical waste.)

Do you pick-up in my area?

If you’re in the greater Jacksonville area, we’ll absolutely pick-up your regulated medical waste because we service all healthcare in Jacksonville, Florida and beyond!

If your facility is outside of the greater Jacksonville area, there’s a good chance we’ll pick-up your waste, but just in case you are in a rural area, please give us a call at 1 (713) 357-6299 now, and within 10 seconds, we will let you know if we have trucks coming to your area. If we don’t have trucks coming to your area, we’ll offer you another solution to get biohazardous medical waste in Jacksonville picked up.

Are there any additional fees?

Unfortunately in our industry, many companies’ quotes look low-cost, but unscrupulously, they have sneaked in hidden fees and/or have hidden ways to administer “price increases” (“PIs”) in their contracts for as much as 18% twice per year! (That would double your cost every ~4 years!)

We run an honest, fair, and ethical business, so we have no hidden fees and we guarantee we will refrain from raising our price. Period.

What is the best method to dispose hospital waste?

The best method to dispose of hospital waste involves segregation at the source, followed by treatment and disposal according to the type of waste. Infectious and hazardous materials should be autoclaved, incinerated, or chemically treated before disposal to minimize environmental impact and health risks.

Where would you dispose of clinical waste?

Clinical waste should be disposed of in designated clinical waste disposal facilities that comply with local and national regulations. These facilities are equipped to handle, treat, and dispose of clinical waste safely through methods like incineration, autoclaving, or chemical treatment to ensure it poses no risk to public health or the environment

How do I dispose of insulin needles in Florida?

In Florida, dispose of insulin needles by placing them in a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, or a heavy-duty plastic container if unavailable. Once filled, seal the container and check with local waste management authorities for specific disposal guidelines, as some areas offer special sharps disposal programs or facilities.

What are examples of medical waste?

Examples of medical waste include sharps (needles, scalpels), contaminated disposables (gloves, bandages, gowns), pathological waste (tissues, organs, body parts), pharmaceutical waste (expired drugs, vaccines), and chemical waste (disinfectants, solvents). Each type requires specific disposal methods to ensure safety and compliance with health regulations.
