Ohio EPA State Definitions

Classifications of Waste

“Infectious wastes” means any wastes or combination of wastes that include cultures and stocks of infectious agents and associated biologicals, human blood and blood products, and substances that were or are likely to have been exposed to or contaminated with or are likely to transmit an infectious agent or zoonotic agent.

Types of Wastes

(a) Laboratory wastes; (b) Pathological wastes, including human and animal tissues, organs, body parts, and body fluids and excreta that are contaminated with or are likely to be contaminated with infectious agents or zoonotic agents; (c) Animal blood and blood products; (d) Animal carcasses and parts; (e) Waste materials from the rooms of humans, or the enclosures of animals, that have been isolated because of diagnosed communicable disease that are likely to transmit infectious agents. Also included are waste materials from the rooms of patients who have been placed on blood and body fluid precautions under the universal precaution system established by the “Centers for Disease Control” in the public health service of the United States department of health and human services, if specific wastes generated under the universal precautions system have been identified as infectious wastes by rules referred to in paragraph (I)(6)(g) of this rule; (f) Sharp wastes used in the treatment, diagnosis, or inoculation of human beings or animals

Storage Requirements

The integrity of the packaging must be maintained. There are no time limits regarding infectious waste storage, however, infectious waste must remain in a non-putrescent state. You must also maintain infectious waste in a manner that prevents it from becoming a food source or breeding ground for animals or insects. Infectious waste storage areas must be marked with a sign that states “warning: infectious waste” and/or displays the international biohazard symbol, or lock the storage area.
