Pennsylvania EPA State Definitions

Types of Wastes

  1. Cultures and stocks
  2. Pathological wastes
  3. Human blood and body fluid waste
  4. Animal waste
  5. Isolation wastes
  6. Used sharps

Storage Requirements

Any person who generates, transports, stores, processes, or disposes of infectious and chemotherapeutic waste must track the waste through the shipping process to its arrival at a disposal facility. The current regulations prescribe the use of paper manifests to ensure that the waste being shipped is processed or disposed of in the manner intended by the generator. The proposed regulations allow generators, transporters and those involved in the storage, processing and disposal of regulated medical waste to use standard business documentation, including electronic tracking systems, to demonstrate compliance with the regulations, provided that all of the required information is contained in that documentation.
