Maine EPA State Definitions
Classifications of Waste
Biohazardous medical waste is composed of one or more of the following:
- Cultures and stocks
- Human blood and blood products
- Human pathologic wastes
- Medical Sharps
- Research animal waste
Types of Wastes
- Cultures and stock: discarded cultures and stocks generated in the diagnosis, treatment or immunization of a human being or animal or in any research relating to that diagnosis, treatment or immunization, or in the production or testing of biologicals.
- Human blood and blood products: discarded products and materials containing free-flowing blood or free-flowing blood components.
Once biohazardous medical waste has been packaged for shipment off site, a generator shall provide a storage area for biohazardous medical waste until the waste is collected. The storage area should be secured in a manner that restricts access to authorized persons only. It must display the universal biohazard symbol and post warning signs worded as follows: “CAUTION – BIOHAZARDOUS MEDICAL WASTE STORAGE AREA – UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS KEEP OUT” and in Spanish: “PRECAUCION – ZONA DE ALMACENAMIENTO DE DESPERDICIOS BIOLOGICOS PELIGROSOS – PROHIBIDA LA ENTRADA A PERSONAS NO AUTORIZADAS.”
