Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“


Medical waste is outlined in Louisiana Administrative Code (§301) as the following: “that portion of potentially infectious biomedical waste that is generated from the operation of medical programs, offices and facilities”

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

Facilities of Regulated Medical Waste


The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has established regulations governing the handling of regulated medical waste, as outlined in the Louisiana Sanitary Code, Chapter XXVII. These regulations encompass various aspects of medical waste management, including packaging, labeling, storage, transportation, and treatment:

Packaging and Labeling: Potentially infectious biomedical waste must be packaged to prevent exposure, with liquids in sturdy, leak-resistant containers and sharps in closed, rigid, break-resistant, puncture-resistant containers. All containers must be clearly labeled as “Potentially Infectious Biomedical Waste,” “Medical Waste,” or “Infectious Waste” and should be water-resistant. Labels must include specific information for untreated and treated waste.

Storage and Transport: This waste must be stored securely, with compactors not being used for storage. Transport of wastes, except for small quantities, requires transporters permitted by the State Health Officer. There are specific provisions for transporter permits, contracts, and operational plans, including worker safety and decontamination.

Treatment and Disposal: Healthcare facilities can store and treat their own potentially infectious biomedical wastes if they have the appropriate permit. Acceptable treatment methods include incineration, steam sterilization, disposal into a sanitary sewer system, thermal inactivation, chemical disinfection, and irradiation with approval. Sharps must be treated in a way that renders them unrecognizable and safe. Treated waste can be disposed of in a permitted sanitary landfill, following the Solid Waste Regulations of the Department of Environmental Quality

Dispose of Regulated Medical Waste


The risks of improper medical waste disposal are clear.

The State of Louisiana defers proper disposal of regulated waste to “private companies available to dispose of medical wastes”.

BioMedical Waste Solutions is one of the very few private Louisiana medical waste disposal companies that are registered and permitted by Louisiana state to handle, transport, store, destroy, and dispose of medical waste and provide Louisiana medical waste disposal services.

What Belongs in a Sharps Container?

The Louisiana Administrative Code (§1101) has outlined “sharps” as the following: “needles, syringes, scalpels, scalpel blades, pipettes and other medical instruments capable of puncturing or lacerating skin. This definition also includes glass fragments and other health care and laboratory waste capable of puncturing or lacerating skin.”

All the above constitutes a “sharp” and belongs in a puncture-resistant and securely closed sharps container.
