Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“


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 Tampa clients also only produce “sharps” as their medical waste.)

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!)

1 Fun and 1 Interesting Fact About Tampa!


Tampa, Florida, is a city brimming with unique charms and fascinating trivia. One fun fact about Tampa is its reputation as the “Cigar City.” The city’s historic Ybor City neighborhood was once the cigar capital of the world, producing millions of cigars annually at its peak in the early 20th century, thanks to the influx of Cuban, Spanish, and Italian immigrants. This rich history is celebrated today with vibrant festivals and the still-thriving cigar shops dotting the area. An interesting fact about Tampa is its pivotal role in the invention of the popular Cuban sandwich. Although its exact origin is a matter of local debate, Tampa’s version is distinctive for including salami, a nod to the Italian influence on the city’s culture. This culinary delight perfectly symbolizes Tampa’s diverse cultural heritage, blending flavors and traditions from various communities.
