Regulations You Need to Know

Regulated “Medical Waste“

biohazardous-waste-disposal

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

Facilities of Regulated Medical Waste

medical-waste-removal

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 Houston (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 Houston medical waste disposal companies that are registered and permitted by Texas state to handle, transport, store, destroy, and dispose of medical waste and provide Houston medical waste disposal services.

Do you pick-up in my area?

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

If your facility is outside of the greater Houston 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 Houston 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 are the guidelines for medical waste disposal in Texas?

In Texas, medical waste must be properly segregated, labeled, and stored in compliant containers. It’s treated through autoclaving, incineration, or other approved methods before disposal. Texas regulations require medical waste generators to register and maintain records for waste tracking and compliance.

What is the best method to dispose hospital waste?

The best method to dispose of hospital waste involves segregation at the source, proper classification, and employing treatments like autoclaving, incineration, or chemical disinfection. This is followed by safe disposal in designated facilities, ensuring compliance with local and federal environmental regulations.

What is the red bin used for in hospitals?

In hospitals, red bins are used specifically for the disposal of regulated medical waste, such as contaminated items that have come into contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials. This includes items like gloves, gowns, and bandages.

What can you do with sharps containers in Houston?

In Houston, sharps containers can be disposed of at designated drop-off locations, such as specific pharmacies, health clinics, or hazardous waste facilities. It’s important to check local guidelines and never dispose of sharps containers in regular trash or recycling bins.

Fun Fact About Houston!

astrodome-700
astrodome-700-2

Houston’s Astrodome, opened in 1965, was the world’s first multi-purpose, domed sports stadium. Due to its innovative design and the fact that it was the first time many people saw a stadium with a roof, it was dubbed the “Eighth Wonder of the World.” The Astrodome also featured the first artificial grass, which was called “AstroTurf” after the stadium.

This iconic venue hosted numerous events over the years, including baseball games, football games, rodeos, concerts, and even the “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in 1973.
