Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“


Medical waste is outlined in Texas Administrative Code (§326.3(23), §1.132) as the following: “treated and untreated special waste from health care-related facilities that is comprised of:

  1. Animal waste (waste from animals that have been intentionally exposed to pathogens)
  2. Bulk blood, bulk human blood, bulk human body fluids
  3. Microbiological waste
  4. Pathological waste
  5. Sharps (hypodermic needles)”

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

Facilities of Regulated Medical Waste


Determining if your “facility” is required to properly dispose of your “medical waste” is a process of discerning what your facility is “not”, as per “30 TAC”:

“Health care-related facilities do not include:

(A) single or multi-family dwellings; and

(B) hotels, motels, or other establishments that provide lodging and related services for the public.”

If your facility is a “family dwelling” or an “establishment providing lodging for the public”, then follow these recommendations for safely disposing of sharps and syringes (GI-418.)

If your facility is not a “family dwelling” or an “establishment providing lodging for the public”, then you are required by law to properly dispose of medical waste.

Dispose of Regulated Medical Waste


The risks of improper medical waste disposal are clear.

The City of Austin (Harrison County) 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 Austin medical waste disposal companies that are registered and permitted by Texas state to handle, transport, store, destroy, and dispose of medical waste and provide Austin medical waste disposal services.

Options include self-transporting to an authorized facility, using registered medical waste transporters, or on-site treatment following specific procedures.

How do I dispose of needles in Austin?
