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 Plano 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.

The risks of improper medical waste disposal are clear.

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

If we don’t have trucks coming to your area, we’ll offer you another solution to get biohazardous medical waste in Plano 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 method of disposal for medical waste?

The method of disposal for medical waste typically involves processes like incineration, autoclaving, chemical disinfection, and landfill disposal. Each method ensures safe handling and environmental responsibility. Incineration destroys hazardous waste effectively, while autoclaving uses high-pressure steam for sterilization. Chemical disinfection and landfill are also used, adhering to regulations to prevent environmental contamination and ensure public safety.

What are the guidelines for medical waste disposal in Texas?

In Texas, medical waste disposal is guided by the Texas Administrative Code. It includes materials like animal waste (from animals exposed to pathogens), bulk blood and body fluids, microbiological waste, pathological waste, and sharps. Facilities generating medical waste, particularly sharps, must manage this waste responsibly. Options include self-transporting to an authorized facility, using registered medical waste transporters, or on-site treatment following specific procedures.

How do you dispose of medicine waste?

To dispose of medicine waste, do not flush them down the toilet or throw them in regular trash. Instead, take them to a pharmacy or a designated medicine disposal site. Some communities also hold medicine take-back events. Alternatively, mix medicines with an unpalatable substance like dirt, cat litter, or used coffee grounds, place the mixture in a sealed plastic bag, and throw it in the household trash.

Where would you dispose of clinical waste?

Clinical waste is generally disposed of through specialized medical waste disposal services. These services ensure compliance with health and safety regulations, providing proper containment, transportation, and treatment of the waste.
