Connecticut EPA State Definitions

Classifications of Waste

Biomedical Waste (BMW) means any infectious, pathological and/or chemotherapy waste generated during the administration of medical care or the performance of medical research involving humans or animals. The definition of BMW excludes hazardous and radioactive waste as defined in state law. Some examples of BMW include blood and other bodily fluids, sharps, discarded animal carcasses known to have been exposed to an infectious agent, etc.

Types of Wastes

  • Infectious waste (including sharps).
  • Pathological waste.
  • Chemotherapy waste.
  • Mixed with a Biomedical Waste.
  • Disposable non-decontaminated reusable containers.

Storage Requirements

BMW must be stored in such a way that it avoids mixing with other materials, and access to it must be limited to personnel authorized by the generator, transporter, or solid waste facility operator to handle it. Outdoor storage areas, such as dumpsters, sheds, or trailers, must be locked. Furthermore, the areas used for storage must be constructed of finished materials that are impermeable and capable of being easily maintained in a sanitary condition. The waste itself should be stored in a manner and location that protects it from water, precipitation, wind, animals, and does not provide a breeding place or food source for insects or rodents. To maintain a non-putrescent state, BMW may be refrigerated during storage. Finally, a sign displaying the universal biohazard symbol and/or the words �BIOHAZARD� must be posted wherever BMW is stored.
